Phillies manager Gabe Kapler looks forward to working with Bryce Harper and says Philadelphia will embrace him.(1:37) Manager Gabe Kapler heard the big news from fans in the stands during the Philadelphia Phillies spring training game.His team won the Bryce Harper sweepstakes, agreeing to a 13-year, $330 million deal with the free-agent outfielder, league sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan on Thursday.Harper's deal includes a no-trade clause and has no opt-outs, league sources told ESPN, indicating that he is committed to the Phillies for possibly the rest of his career.Fans showed Kapler and the Phillies their phones, giving updates as reports leaked out.He said he asked them where they were getting the info, afraid it wasn't legitimate."If the reports are true, it's a huge moment for our baseball team," Kapler said after the game."We get a lot better on the field, and Bryce Harper is a great teammate.We'd love to have him in our clubhouse, if the reports are true." Harper, the 2015 National League MVP and still only 26 years old, was one of the top prizes in this year's crop of free agents.Infielder Manny Machado agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres, and it was assumed Harper's total would exceed that contract.Not only did he do that, his total beats Giancarlo Stanton's 13-year, $325 million extension signed with the Miami Marlins."We had average values of $45 million offered on shorter-term deals," Harper's agent, Scott Boras, told the New York Post."We had a full buffet." MLB Network was the first to report that Harper and the Phillies were closing in on an agreement."The goal was to get the longest contract possible," Boras told the Post."Bryce wanted one city for the rest of his career.That is what I was instructed to is very difficult in this time to get length of contract that takes a player to age 37, 38, 39." Kapler, who said that Harper would likely hit third or fourth in the lineup, met with Harper during the offseason courtship."One thing we know about Bryce is that he's an intense individual," he said."He plays the game especially hard." Following news of Harper's decision, his odds to win the 2019 NL MVP award moved from 6-1 to 5-1 at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.Harper isn't the only upgrade to the roster for the Phillies, who wereto finish third in the NL East last season.They traded for catcher J.T.Realmuto and infielder Jean Segura and signed outfielder Andrew McCutchen and reliever David Robertson."It's exciting.He's a superstar player," said starter Aaron Nola of Harper, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer."We were already a better team without him, but now that we got him, it takes it up a notch." Nola signed a four-year extension of his own this offseason.He was asked by NBC Sports during the Phillies' game Thursday what the Harper signing meant."We're not rebuilding anymore, and that's exciting," he said, adding: "We are ready to contend again."
