The Philadelphia Phillies seems to have won Bryce Harper's prize draw and a 13-year $ 330 million deal with free agents.
Harper's store does not contain a commercial clause, and no exclusions, championship sources told ESPN that he was committed to Phillies for the remainder of his career.
Harper, the 2015 National League MVP, was only 26 years old, and is one of the best prizes in this year's collection. Infielder Manny Machado agreed with a 10-year-old $ 300 million in San Diego Padres and assumed Harper's total sum exceeded this contract. Not only did this, but Giancarlo Stanton signed a 13-year, $ 325 million extension with Miami Marlins.
"We received an average of $ 45 million in short-term transactions," said Harper's agent Scott Boras to the New York Post. "There was a full buffet."
MLB.com was the first to announce Harper and Phillies.
"The goal was to get the longest contract possible," said Boras to Post. "Bryce wanted a city until the end of his career. That was what I ordered to do this. At this time it is very difficult to get the duration of the contract, a player up to the age of 37 years."
Philadelphia made it clear that he wanted to go boldly this season. After a month's wait, the strategy finally paid a $ 330 million deal, making Harper the highest paid free agent in baseball history.

Following Harper's decision, the winner of the 2019 NL MVP Award moved from 6-1 to 5-1 on the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.
Harper is not the only update to the Phillies list that hit 80-82 in third place last season. Traders J.T. Realmuto and infielder Jean Segura and signed Andrew McCutchen and David Robertson's liberator.
"It's exciting. Superstar player," said starter Aaron Nola of Harper, according to Philadelphia Inquirer. "We've had a better team with it, but now that we've arrived, it takes a slice."
Nola signed a four-year extension of his time. NBC Sports asked in the Phillies Spring training game on Orioles Thursday, which was a Harper signature.
"We're not rebuilding anymore, and it's exciting," he said, adding, "We're ready to fight again."
The Phillies jug, Zach Eflin, told NBC that the team already had climatic expectations, but added Harper to another level.
"We're all excited. I'm sure you're excited." "It will be a lot of fun in many years."
They asked him what he said to the fans.
"Anyone can see and see that it's time to win," he said.
Harper is a six-time All-Star and in 2012 he was the newcomer to NL. He is a patient hitter who is familiar with many households and many walking drawings and has an average of 279 people, 184. 521 RBI and 0.888% during his career.
Harper hit the .249 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs for Washington Nationals last year. He fought most of the first half, but at the All-Star ceremony he won the Home Run Derby at National Park, and scored 11 breaks. He led the NL with 130 walks, fifth to base (.393).
She goes to a ballpark that fits her well. Harper runs 14 careers at home in Citizens Bank Park, on any of the career paths. The 544 career sluging in the park ranks first among 71 players with at least 200 discs. Rhys Hoskins, who is likely to hit directly behind Harper in the podium order, is second in the list (.562).
According to the Baseball Prospect, Citizens Bank Park is linked to Miller Park as the most unfriendly NL stadium for left-handed troubles in the past three seasons.
One of the main topics of citizens – and all Major League Baseball – was to get Harper to a long-term business. It is reported that a $ 10 million bid for $ 10 million has been presented by Nats.
He took a free office after reducing the citizens' qualified bid to $ 17.9 million. As citizens exceed the luxury tax, they will be compensated for Harper after the fourth round.
Harper led the big championships in 2015 with 42 people and 99 RBIs. With 24 households and 86 RBIs, it fell to an average of 243, then in 2016 with 291 and 87 RBIs, only 111 games.
"He showed me what kind of player he is, and now he is a grizzled veteran," said Mike Rizzo, chief executive officer on November 7th. "He has done a lot in the game and only scratches the surface."
