PHILADELPHIA (WIBW/AP) -- It looks like the biggest question of the Major League Baseball off-season finally has an answer. And, that answer is Philadelphia.
Bryce Harper is reportedly heading to the City of Brotherly Love. MLB Network's Jon Heyman broke the story Thursday afternoon on Twitter and his report was soon backed up by FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal.
According to Heyman, the soon-to-be-a-Phillie right-fielder contract runs 13 years and will pay him $330 million. The deal is still pending a physical.
Harper has been connected to the Philadelphia Phillies and the San Francisco Giants during a second consecutive slow free-agent market for the sport. Manny Machado, the other top free agent this winter, signed a $300 million, 10-year deal with the San Diego Padres on Friday.
The 26-year-old Harper was the 2015 NL MVP and made six All-Star teams in seven big league seasons with the Washington Nationals. He batted .249 with 34 home runs, 100 RBIs and an .889 OPS last season.
