Machado’s remaining contract is six years and $192 million. That’s an average of $32 million per year. Therefore, San Diego will have to offer a contract of at least seven years and a total value of more than $200 million.
Machado, who will be celebrating his 12th year in the major leagues, recorded a batting average of 0.298, 32 homers, 102 RBIs, 100 runs, 172 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.366 OPS of 0.898 in 150 games last year.
His FWAR and wRC+ were career highs of 7.4 and 152. And he’s still great on defense.
As a result, Machado was selected as an All-Star for the 6th time in his personal career, and ranked 2nd in the National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) vote. The second place in MVP is also a career high.
