San Diego Padres and Jurickson Profar Agreed to One-Year, $1M Deal
Jurickson Profar has agreed to return to the San Diego Padres for the 2024 season, signing a one-year, $1 million deal. This ensures his return to the Major Leagues after his time in the Miami Caribbean Series with Curacao.
The agreement will become official after Profar undergoes a physical examination, but his presence in spring training is assured. The Padres acquired Profar in 2023 in a trade with the Colorado Rockies, and in 14 games with the Padres, he performed well, slashing .295/.367/.409 with a pair of doubles, a home run, and 7 runs batted in.
Before joining the Padres, Profar played for the Colorado Rockies, hitting .236/.316/.364 with 25 doubles, 2 triples, 8 home runs, and 39 stolen bases. His versatility in covering second base, shortstop, and outfield is seen as a valuable asset for the Padres, especially after the trade that sent Juan Soto to the New York Yankees.
With 10 years of experience in the MLB, the Curacao native provides depth and versatility to the Padres as they look to make a strong comeback in the 2024 season.
