Bryce Harper finally has a team. He signed with the Philadelphia Phillies to a 13-year, $330 million deal, according to multiple reports. It is the largest total value contract in Major League Baseball history. The deal has no opt outs. It includes a full no-trade clause for the six-time All-Star outfielder.

Harper entered free agency as the highest profile free agent. He won the National League MVP in 2015. However, it took a while to reach a deal eclipsing the $300 million mark.

The Phillies busy offseason continues. The team already signed Andrew McCutchen and David Robertson while acquiring J.T. Realmuto and Jean Segura in trades.  The Phillies finished last season 80-82.
