The Philadelphia Phillies agreed to a seven-year, $172 million contract with Aaron Nola. That will be about $24 million a year for Nola. He already passed his physical, so it's already officially official. It also came out that Aaron Nola met with other teams and turned down more money to stay in Philadelphia.
Aaron Nola has been one of the most healthiest pitchers the past few years. There have been just three pitchers the last three seasons to throw at least 180 IP. Those pitchers are Aaron Nola, Gerrit Cole, and Sandy Alcantara.
Aaron Nola will be a Philadelphia Phillie for life. He's one of their longest tenured players. The Phillies and Aaron Nola got this deal done pretty early into the offseason. Also, this move could mean more people are going to be signing soon. Once one signs, usually a lot more come.
