Baseball’s biggest free agent finally found a new home as outfielder Bryce Harper agreed to a record breaking contract.
The contract reportedly does not have any opt-outs and contains a full no-trade clause, so Harper is committing to the city of Philadelphia for essentially the remainder of his career. Over the last handful of days, it seemed to come down to the Phillies, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants going for Harper. According to Bob Nightengale, here are the final offers that were on the table for Harper.
Los Angeles Dodgers: 3 years, $135 million or 4 years, $168 million
San Francisco Giants: 12 years, $310 million
Philadelphia Phillies: 13 years, $330 million. No opt out. Full no trade. No deferred money
