Fernando Tatis Jr's reported 14-year, $340 million deal is the largest ever for a player before he is even arbitration eligible, surpassing the 6-year, $144.5M extension Mike Trout signed in 2014. Trout and the Angels kicked around the idea of a lifetime contract then but couldn't solidify it. The Padres did.
