Phillies agree to contract with Aaron Nola



The Phillies and free agent pitcher Aaron Nola agreed to a 7-year $172 million contract. Talks between the Phillies and agent Joe Longo started to heat up in recent days, and both sides were able to agree on a contract Sunday morning.


The Phillies and Nola attempted to work out a contract extension after the 2022 season. However, both sides failed to work out a deal and talks were ended. Even after multiple attempts during the regular season, Nola and the Phillies could never work out a contract extension.


Nola has spent his entire career with the Phillies, and he will turn 31 during next season. The 2018 all-star was one of the biggest name free agents this off-season and has decided he wants to continue his career in Philadelphia. Nola was the Phillies first round draft pick in 2014 and is the longest tenured player with the Phillies. He has pitched 6 straight Opening Days for the club which is 3rd most in franchise history.


In 2023, Nola was 12-9 with a 4.46 ERA. He helped the Phillies to the 2022 National League Pennant and helped the Phillies return to the NLCS this past season. Nola has pitched in 9 postseason games in the last two seasons with a 5-3 record with a 3.70 ERA.


Nola's contract is pending a physical.
