The Philadelphia Phillies and Aaron Nola are reportedly in agreement on a 7-year deal worth $170-$175 million, as per Bob Nightengale.
Nola has spent his entire 9-year career with the Phillies. He was the seventh overall selection of the 2014 MLB draft.
Nola was one of the top starting pitcher available in free agency and he was reportedly being pursued by the Atlanta Braves, who are one of the Phillies top rivals.
Keeping Nola was a big offseason priority for the Phillies. They can concentrate on signing a closer.
