Trea Turner Reportedly Turned Down More Money From Padres to Join Phillies


Yesterday, the Phillies and Trea Turner agreed on a $300 million deal that will keep him in Philadelphia for the remainder of his career. But the Phillies had some competition for the Trea Turner sweepstakes.

Per The Athletic's Matt Gelb, the San Diego Padres offered Turner more in "total guaranteed dollars" than the $300 million he agreed to with the reigning National League Champions. ESPN's Jeff Passan and Kiley McDaniel reported the 11-year, $300 million agreement between Philadelphia and Turner.

Padres' had "legitimate interest" in bringing back Turner, who was their first-round draft pick in 2014. Members of the organization met with the two-time All-Star twice before the winter meetings.

The Padres have also spent big money to sign Manny Machado as a free agent (10 years, $300 million) and extend Fernando Tatis Jr. (14 years, $340 million). They have made the postseason in two of the last three years, including losing to the Phillies in the 2022 NLCS.
