He has 11 WAR over the last 2.5 seasons and he's 29 now. Now he's locked up into that under market contract until he's 34. Unfair system.

Yeah, the system kills these kind of players. Came to the majors really late, so he would never make it to free agency while he had value. 2010 draft pick out of college, late bloomer. He could have rolled the dice with a couple of arb years and made free agency at 32, but there's not much money for 32-year-old FAs who might be only slightly above average by then.

Still, he's making 16 million dollars, so I can't be too upset for him...

That's him with the CWS winner.

And that UCLA team had a 1-2 of Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer.

While Padres have an eye on Manny Machado, they are also considering Mike Moustakas, who may be a more realistic target. No surprise, Eric Hosmer is said to have highly recommended Moose.
