Phillies break bank for Trea Turner on 11-year, $300M deal, reuniting him with Bryce Harper


The reigning National League champion Philadelphia Phillies have signed free-agent All-Star shortstop Trea Turner, according to Jeff Passan.

The deal is worth $300 million over 11 years with a full no-trade clause, according to Jon Heyman.

Turner, 29, rejoins his former Washington Nationals teammate Bryce Harper in Philadelphia, bolstering an already potent lineup.

Turner, 29, slashed .298/.343/.466 with 21 home runs, 100 RBIs, 27 stolen bases and an .809 OPS in 2022, his first full season as a Dodger after spending his first six and a half seasons with the Nationals. According to FanGraphs, Turner's 15.9 WAR since the start of 2020 is tied with José Ramírez for the second best mark among all position players, with only Aaron Judge topping him.

For his career, Turning is hitting .302 while averaging 24 homers and 83 RBI per season.

The Phillies declined the $17 million option of Jean Segura, meaning they will likely move Bryson Stott over to second base to make room for Turner at shortstop.
