NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Jurickson Profar is staying with the San Diego Padres, agreeing to a $21 million, three-year contract.

Profar, who turns 28 on Feb. 20, was acquired by San Diego from Oakland in December 2019 and hit a career-best .278 in the pandemic-shortened season with seven homers and 25 RBIs.

He mostly split time at second base and left field.

Profar has a .238 average with 59 homers and 222 RBIs in seven major league seasons.
