  • Padres Open To Extending Josh Hader

    Even after the San Diego Padres gave third baseman Manny Machado a new 11-year, $350 million deal, the team is open to having contract-extension discussions with closer Josh Hader. The Padres are expected to reach out soon to Hader, who will be a free agent after this season. "It's a great place to be, but at the end of the day business is business," Hader said. The 28-year-old left-hander agreed to a one-year, $14.1 million deal with the team in January to avoid salary arbitration, which is the biggest salary an arbitration-eligible reliever has received. Hader really struggled with the Brewers and Padres in 2022 (5.22 ERA, 1.28 WHIP), but he still managed 36 saves and remains one of the most dominant relievers in baseball when he's on. He's a top-five fantasy closer heading into his first full season in SD.

  • Padres Likely To Explore Extension Talks With Josh Hader, Juan Soto This Spring

  • Josh Hader Avoids Arbitration With Record Deal

    The San Diego Padres and relief pitcher Josh Hader avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $14.1 million deal, according to a source. It becomes the biggest salary in arbitration in MLB history for a reliever. The Padres acquired the left-hander from the Milwaukee Brewers at last year's trade deadline, but was uncharacteristically wild and really struggled overall in 2022. Hader had a 7.31 ERA in 19 appearances in San Diego and finished with a career-high 5.22 ERA (3.45 FIP), 1.28 WHIP, 36 saves, 9.6% walk rate and 37% strikeout rate. Despite the down year, the 28-year-old southpaw had a really rough stretch to blame and he looked to be back to elite Hader form in the postseason, so a bounce-back campaign in 2023 is very possible.
