Aaron Nola, Philadelphia remains…Renewed contract for seven years and $172 million
Local media, including ESPN, reported on Tuesday (Nov. 20), citing sources, that Nola has agreed to re-sign with his original team, the Philadelphia Phillies.
The contract is for seven years and $172 million (KRW 229 billion).
It is a pure seven-year deal with no opt-out or team option. The deal will keep him in Philadelphia for virtually his entire career.
He was named an All-Star in 2018 and has been on the ballot for the Cy Young Award three times. He finished third in 2018.
He has anchored the Phillies’ starting rotation since the 2017 season with back-to-back 200-plus innings pitched, including three in a row.
In the postseason, he appeared in nine games, going 5-3 with a 3.70 ERA. His performance helped the Phillies reach the World Series in 2022.
In 2023, he went 12-9 with a 4.46 ERA in 32 games and 193 2/3 innings pitched. His WHIP was 1.151, with 1.5 home runs, 2.1 walks, and 9.4 strikeouts per nine innings.
According to New York Post major league baseball writer John Heyman, Nola was offered more money by other teams but chose to sign with the Orioles.
Nola’s decision to re-sign with the Angels, who are considered a top-tier option in the free agent market, has spurred other teams in need of starting pitching reinforcements.
