Gonzalez Looking For Teixeira-Like Deal

Mar 03, 2010 6:40 AM EST

Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is believed to be seeking a contract similar to the one the Yankees gave Mark Teixeira last winter.

Teixeira got an eight-year, $180 million deal.

Agent John Boggs says he had very preliminary talks with San Diego general manager Jed Hoyer and that they were effectively ended when he mentioned Teixeira's deal as a guide for Gonzalez's hopes.
