Fernando Tatis Jr. and the San Diego Padres reached an agreement Wednesday on a 14-year, $340 million extension that would be the third-largest contract in MLB history, according to multiple media reports.

Tatis’ extension, which wasn’t immediately confirmed by the Padres, trails only Mike Trout’s 12-year, $426.5 million extension with the Los Angeles Angels and Mookie Betts’ 12-year, $365 million extension with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 14-year deal, however, is the longest in terms of additional years ever signed by a player in league history, according to MLB.com.
