SAN DIEGO (AP) — Xander Bogaerts’ $280 million, 11-year contract with the San Diego Padres has been finalized after the All-Star shortstop passed his physical. The Padres introduced their newest slugger during an afternoon news conference at Petco Park. Bogaerts joins an already deep lineup that includes third baseman Manny Machado and outfielder Juan Soto. Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. will be eligible to rejoin the Padres on April 20 at the conclusion of his 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Tatis is expected to move to the outfield.
