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

Harper's agent, California-based Scott Boras, said the deal was agreed to at 12:34 p.m. CST, subject to a successful physical. Well, you can finally go to bed at ease tonight as Harper has finally signed a contract.

MLB Network's Jon Heyman on Thursday was first to report that free agent outfielder Bryce Harper will sign with the Philadelphia Phillies, spurning potential NL West suitors the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.

The former National flirted with the Dodgers and Giants, meeting on multiple occasions with those teams, and there was the reported belief he preferred the Dodgers, who are close to his Las Vegas home. The deal does not contain any opt-outs or deferred money and will keep the outfielder in Philadelphia through 2032.

The Philadelphia Phillies are thought to have the most lucrative contract on the table, but Harper seems to be looking for another team that will come close to their offer. Any heartfelt dreams of Bryce Harper playing alongside childhood friend and Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant are officially over. Because the Nationals paid luxury tax last season, the Phillies' compensation pick will be after the fourth round, about 140th. He had turned down the team's $17.9 million qualifying offer.

Johnson told her boyfriend, and her mother and stepfather that same day, and later sought our and received help from a therapist. According to the lawsuit, Trump visited one of these RVs in Tampa before a rally there when the unwanted kiss took place.

Even former players are excited about the deal.

But no, free agency is not as healthy as these facts suggest. But the 26-year-old Harper took the money - don't they always? - and likely makes the Phillies the favorite in the division, part of a blockbuster offseason that also includes J.T. Realmuto, Andrew McCutchen, David Robertson and Jean Segura. They also gave ace Aaron Nola a $45 million, four-year deal.

His best year was 2015, when at age 22 he hit.330 with 42 homers, 99 RBIs, 118 runs and 124 walks, amassing an OPS of 1.109.

The 2015 MVP and 2011 Rookie of the Year has been named an All-Star in six of his seven seasons.
