Philadelphia, it's time to break out the checkbooks to add a new jersey to your collections. Bryce Harper has finally found a new home. After much anticipation, Bryce Harper is now a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. 


Harper and the Phillies have agreed to a 13 year, $330 million contract. Harper comes to Philadelphia with 922 hits, 184 home runs and a .274 batting average. Harper is a former league MVP, six time All-Star, Rookie of The Year and a Silver Slugger winner. Harper is coming off the 2018 season with 137 hits, 34 home runs and a .249 batting average.


With Mike Trout getting ready to be available for free agency in 2020, Philadelphia could pursue Trout and have a powerhouse team in the "City of Brotherly Love".
