NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to a $330 million, 13-year contract, the largest deal in baseball history.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because the agreement is subject to a successful physical.

A 26-year-old All-Star outfielder, Harper topped the $325 million, 13-year agreement outfielder Giancarlo Stanton reached before the 2015 season with the Miami Marlins.

Harper’s agreement was first reported by the MLB Network.

Harper gets a $20 million signing bonus, a $10 million salary this year, $26 million in each of the following nine seasons and $22 in each of the last three years.

None of the money is deferred.

    I love the game but that’s it, it’s a game. These men are not worth the money. Now our real warriors on the other hand, you know the ones that put their life on the line every day to protect and defend American citizens, get paid diddley squat compared to a bunch of guys out there having fun. It just don’t seem right.
