Mets, batting champ Jeff McNeil reach $50M extension

National League batting champion Jeff McNeil and the New York Mets agreed Friday to a four-year, $50 million contract extension, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN, ensuring one of the team’s core players will stay in Queens as the Mets look to win their first World Series since 1986. McNeil, who turns 31 a week after Opening Day, was arranged to go to an arbitration trial with the Mets, where he was requesting $7.75 million and they offered $6.25 million. Instead, the gap spurred conversations about keeping McNeil past his remaining two years of arbitration that landed on buying out multiple free agent […]

Taylor Rogers inks three-year deal with San Francisco Giants

Left-hander Taylor Rogers is joining twin brother Tyler as a reliever with the San Francisco Giants, agreeing to a $33 million, three-year deal. On April 11 in San Francisco, they both pitched in the same match, with Taylor playing for San Diego at the time. It was the second time in major league history that twins pitched in the same game and the first time on opposing teams. The Giants on Wednesday announced the deal that will pay Taylor Rogers $9 million next season and $12 million each in 2024 and 2025. San Francisco designated infielder Tommy La Stella for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster […]

Aaron Judge cashes in with 9-year, $360M Yankees deal

Aaron Judge’s bet on himself paid off in a big way. Judge has agreed to return to the New York Yankees on a nine-year, $360 million deal, sources confirmed to ESPN early Wednesday morning, giving the slugger nearly $150 million more than what the team had offered him in the spring. He decided to remain with the Yankees after flirtations with the San Francisco Giants, the team located about 100 miles from where Judge grew up in California, and the San Diego Padres, who have made it clear they are open to making big moves this winter. The looming specter of Judge leaving for […]

Angels acquire Hunter Renfroe, send 3 pitchers to Brewers

The Los Angeles Angels obtained power-hitting outfielder Hunter Renfroe in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers for three young pitchers Tuesday night. Milwaukee received right-handers Janson Junk and Elvis Peguero, and minor league lefty Adam Seminaris. Renfroe batted .255 with 29 home runs, 72 RBIs and an .807 OPS in 125 games this season, his first with the Brewers. He led major league right fielders with 11 assists and ranked 10th in the National League with a .492 slugging percentage. “Obviously, it’s a productive player who’s done it year in and year out for a while,” Angels general manager Perry Minasian said on a Zoom conference with reporters. “It’s […]

Padres’ bats come alive in Game 2 comeback win to even NLCS

Juan Soto and Josh Hader absorbed most of the attention, but Brandon Drury and Josh Bell were in-season assets of similar importance to the San Diego Padres — a belief further emphasized by Fernando Tatis Jr.’s ensuing suspension. Drury and Bell represented key power bats in the middle of the lineup, a key source of protection for Soto and Manny Machado. And on Wednesday, with the Padres in desperate need of a victory, their bats finally came alive. Drury and Bell, struggling all postseason and for most of their Padres tenure, combined for five hits and drove in five runs in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, keying an 8-5 […]

Padres pull out 5-3 victory over Dodgers, tie NLDS 1-all

Not many tabbed the San Diego Padres to defeat the Mets in New York in the wild-card round. Even fewer picked them versus the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dominated the Padres in recent years and were baseball’s best team during the regular season. But they’re all even now. Manny Machado homered early and added an RBI double off Clayton Kershaw, and Jurickson Profar singled home the go-ahead run as San Diego defeated the Dodgers 5-3 on Wednesday to tie their NL Division Series at one game apiece. “We’re going to compete,” Machado said. “We’re going to try to do everything possible to help our team win every single […]

Brewers complete DH sweep of Giants; Peralta exits early

Not even Freddy Peralta’s unexpectedly early exit could keep the Milwaukee Brewers from silencing the San Francisco Giants’ lineup. The Brewers permitted a total of seven hits in a doubleheader sweep of the Giants on Thursday. Corbin Burnes struck out 14 and allowed three hits over eight shutout innings as the Brewers won 2-1 in the opening game. Peralta lasted just two innings in the second game before departing with shoulder fatigue, but Milwaukee’s bullpen led the way to a 4-2 triumph. “Just pleased with the pitching as a whole,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “They pitched great. Everybody chipped in.” Peralta departed after walking Tommy […]

Smith, Thompson homers power MLB-leading Dodgers past Padres

Will Smith homered for the second successive game and Trayce Thompson added a pinch-hit home run as the Los Angeles Dodgers used two big innings to defeat the San Diego Padres 9-4 on Sunday night. The Dodgers, who have the best record in the MLB at 92-41, extended their lead over the Padres in the NL West to 19 matches with 29 games left. The Dodgers’ magic number to claim the division is nine. “You definitely want to win the division and it gives you a little bit easier road to the postseason,” Smith said. “Once you get to the postseason, it doesn’t matter. We really just […]

The San Diego Padres signed All-Star right-hander Joe Musgrove to a five-year contract extension Monday. Terms were not disclosed, but according to multiple reports, the deal is worth $100 million.

Preller said in a statement. “He personifies a championship-level mindset and elevates the teammates around him. We’re extremely happy to […]

San Diego Padres pitcher Mike Clevinger emotional after impressive start in return from Tommy John surgery

Mike Clevinger held it together as long as he could. But after ultimately getting back on a major league mound following elbow surgery, a lockout, knee sprain and a rainout that had delayed his return for San Diego, Clevinger couldn’t control his emotions. “I wasn’t sure I was going to pitch again,” Clevinger said Wednesday, his voice cracking as he choked back tears. “So this is big.” Clevinger had an impressive first start since having Tommy John surgery in 2020, and Manny Machado hit a two-run homer, as the Padres edged the Cleveland Guardians 5-4 in the first game of a doubleheader. Machado connected in the third […]
