Fernando Tatis Jr agrees to Padres megadeal: 14 years, $#40M

Fernando Tatis Jr. and the San Diego Padres have agreed to a 14-year, $340 million deal on Wednesday, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed.

The 22-year-old shortstop has a .301 average to go along with 111 hits, 39 homers and 98 RBIs in his two seasons with San Diego, a total of 143 games.

The deal makes Tatis the highest-paid shortstop and the third-highest paid major league player ever. Mike Trout ($426,500,000) and Mookie Betts ($365,000,000) are the only players with bigger contracts.

This is just the latest in a series of big moves the Padres have made this offseason. They acquired pitchers Yu Darvish and Blake Snell in trades with the Cubs and Rays respectively.

The Padres also re-signed the versatile Jurickson Profar, who played five positions for San Diego last season.
