San Diego Padres are reportedly montioring the market for Yoenis Cespedes

On Monday, Justin Upton agreed to a six-year, $132.75 million deal with the Detroit Tigers. Now that Upton is gone, the Padres have to figure out what will be their next move. Well according to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Tribune, the Padres are monitoring the market for free agent Yoenis Cespedes.

 

According to a source, the Padres are monitoring the market for Cespedes, though the source also indicated a match is unlikely.

Cespedes, 30, is two years older than Upton, but unlike the one-time Padres left fielder, he is not attached to draft-pick compensation. That could lead to a similarly lucrative contract for Cespedes — the Mets and the White Sox reportedly are among the suitors — but it also could factor into the potential appeal for San Diego.

 

The Padres proved last year that they don’t mind spending money on free agents, but I don’t know if they want to put another big contract on the books.
