Lyou San Diego Padres undoubtedly have one of the highest and most attractive payrolls in all of MLB and they put together a great team to fight for the World Series, however, in this 2021 season they are close to consummating a failure.
With a payroll of 173,478,698 million dollars, the Friars are in the fight for the wild card of the National League, however, each day that passes that option seems more complicated.
Without a doubt the weight of the team has fallen on the back of a young Fernando Tatís Jr., who has not had the best of seasons due to physical problems, missing a good part of the campaign.
Manny Machado is the player on the roster with the highest income ($ 32 million), followed by Wil Myers ($ 22.5 million), Eric Hosmer ($ 21 million), Yu Darvish ($ 19 million) and Blake Snell ($ 11.1).
The end of the season does not look easy for the border ninth, who they will have to face series against the San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
