Bryce Harper Signs With Philadelphia Phillies For 13 Years and $330 Million

While Machado signed a 10-year, $300 million contract with the San Diego Padres just a few weeks ago, fans have been anxiously awaiting news on the Harper front.

Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a $330 million, 13-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.

According to The Associated Press, the agreement is subject to a successful physical.

The commitment is mutual, as the deal reportedly includes a no-trade clause and no opt-outs, which have become increasingly popular recently. According to Heyman, neither Harper nor Machado wanted to sign their contract first, believing, perhaps, that they could receive a bigger payday by signing after the other. The former 2010 No. 1 overall pick won the National League MVP in 2015, putting together one of the finest seasons in recent memory, as he slashed.330/.460/.649 with 42 home runs, 99 RBIs, 124 walks and a 9.3 fWAR. He has averaged 32 homers and 91 RBIs per 162 games played and carries a.388 on-base percentage, .512 slugging percentage and.900 OPS for his career. He hit 22 home runs and batted.270 in that first season to win the National League Rookie of the Year Award. He started more than a third of his games in center field instead of his usual spot in right, because of injuries to teammates.

Harper's numbers were down slightly in 2018. Harper wore a headband with the D.C. flag's design, reflecting his oft-stated pride in playing for Washington.




Harper will return to his old home in the season's second week, when the Phillies play at the NL East rival Nationals on April 2 and 3.

But that eventually ran its course. "We saw what he could do in 2015, arguably one of the best seasons of the last 20 years at the plate".

It's true that teams have generally shied away.

Either pitcher would be an obvious fit for the Phillies, though after adding Harper, Andrew McCutchen, David Robertson, J.T. Realmuto and Jean Segura already this winter, it doesn't seem as though GM Matt Klentak, president Andy MacPhail and owner John Middleton are prepared to pay top-of-the-market prices.

However, in going to Philadelphia, Harper joins a club that has not reached the postseason since 2011, although their 80-82 record last season showed the Phillies to be a team on the rise. Philadelphia has not made the playoffs since 2011.
