On Wednesday morning the Philadelphia Phillies and Ace Pitcher, Aaron Nola agreed on a four-year contract extension worth $45 million with a club option for a fifth year, which could keep Nola in Philly until 2023. This contract extension buys out the last three-years of Nola's salary arbitration eligibility and his first free-agent year. This news comes on the first day of Spring Training. Aaron Nola and GM Matt Klentak will hold a presser on Thursday to discuss the details of the deal at Spectrum Field.
Aaron Nola and the Phillies were scheduled go to an arbitration hearing on Thursday as Nola was seeking $6.75 million. The Phillies had only offered $4.5 million. It's a great thing that the two sides were able to get a deal done and avoid going to the hearing.
What;s the next Move Matt Klentak? The next big move better be a free-agent signing and his name better be Bryce Harper or Manny Machado get it done KLENTAK PHILLIES FANS ARE WAITING! The time to win is now!
