Padres Sign Wil Myers to 6-Year Contract

Padres fan favorite Wil Myers has signed a six-year contract, the team announced on Tuesday.

The contract keeps the first baseman in San Diego through the 2022 season with a club option for the 2023 season, the Padres said in a news release.

Myers had the best offensive season for a right-handed hitting Padre in the Petco Park era, clubbing 28 home runs with 94 RBI, 28 doubles and stealing 28 bags. Myers was the cleanup hitter for the National League in the All-Star game and became a fan favorite.

It was unclear how much the contract cost the Padres, but talks were reportedly in the 6-year, $80 million range.
