Padres owner: Adrian Gonzalez won’t be traded
|09.11.10 at 4:36 pm ET|
San Diego Padres principal owner Jeff Moorad told Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com that the Padres will not be trading Adrian Gonzalez this offseason. The first baseman, who has long been of interest to the Red Sox, will become a free agent following the 2011 season if he does not sign an extension with the Padres. Rosenthal quoted Moorad as saying, “It’s a foregone conclusion that he will be back with the team.”
Rosenthal reports that is still uncertain what will transpire after this offseason, with the 28-year-old most likely looking at something closer to Mark Teixeira’s deal (8 years, $180 million) rather than a three-year contract with the same relative annual average.
Gonzalez is currently hitting .305 with a .394 on-base percentage, .512 slugging and 27 home runs.
