Heyman reports Harper didn’t care about opt-outs as there are none. Heyman also notes while no one will ever claim again that Bryce isn’t necessarily enamored by Philly, he is enamored by 13 guaranteed years.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports the deal includes a full no trade clause and the two sides are together from his age now (26) until he is 38 years old. Rosenthal notes the $25.4 million per year Harper will make is the 14-highest in major league history.
Harper signing will draw a close to an extended period of free agent for one of the game’s biggest stars. He’ll now undergo a physical before the deal is officially announced.
