Harper, Phillies agree to $330M, 13-year deal

Reports: Harper spurns D-backs rivals Dodgers, Giants to sign with Phillies

As first reported by ESPN's Jeff Passan on Thursday, the Philadelphia Phillies have won the Harper sweepstakes and are in the process of finalizing a 13-year, $330 million deal with the outfielder. The record is for the total value of $330 million, not for annual salary, which breaks down to $25.4 million.

Listen above to Mike's full reaction to Bryce Harper's agreement on a deal with Philadelphia. Sure enough, word has since surfaced about the offers made to him by both the San Francisco Giants and now the Los Angeles Dodgers.

According to Heyman, the deal has no opt-outs.

Harper posted 34 homers and 100 RBIs last season, while leading the league with 130 walks.

Harper and the Phillies travel to the nation's capital in early April for a series against the Washington Nationals. Thus far they've acquired former N.L. MVP Andrew McCutchen, All-Star reliever David Robertson, and power-hitting catcher J.T. Realmuto. Is he gonna hit home runs in that park? Despite that status, it took Harper quite a long time to make up his mind, with the Nationals, Dodgers, Giants, Phillies, and Cubs all rumored to have at least tested the Harper waters. "And they're going to sign Trout by the way, in two years". He started more than a third of his games in center field instead of his usual spot in right, because of injuries to teammates.

"Bryce Harper's kind of the face of CSN", said Garritano.

Harper had reportedly turned down a 10-year, $300 million offer from the Nationals. Harper wore a headband with the D.C. flag's design, reflecting his oft-stated pride in playing for Washington. It's one thing to get outbid or have the player choose another team, but not even making a serious attempt to sign either of them? Major League Baseball on FOX reporter Ken Rosenthal says his sources also confirm Harper will sign with Philadelphia.
