Aaron Nola Secures 7-Year, $172 Million Phillies Contract
Philly’s own starting pitcher, Aaron Nola, has inked a record 7-year, $172 million deal with the team over the weekend. It’s likely that Nola, who has worn a Phillies uniform for his entire career, will remain a fixture on the team until retirement.
At around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Nola will be accompanied by Phillies’ baseball operations president Dave Dombrowski and general manager Sam Fuld to delve into the details of the new contract.

As one of the most sought-after arms in the free-agent market, Nola garnered significant interest and was pursued by several big-market, contending teams. It was expected that his contract would cross the $150 million mark, given his impressive track record and pitching prowess at the age of 30.
Last offseason’s top pitching contract went to Carlos Rodon — six years, $162 million. Nola’s lengthy track record at the same age made his lucrative contract a foregone conclusion.
