It's Official: Nationals Sign Bryce Harper

At the last minute, and with the deadline to sign rapidly approaching, the Nationals were able to reach a deal with 17-year-old super prospect Bryce Harper, according to Nats Town News.

The terms of the contract are not yet known, but reports released right around midnight all suggest the deal is for about $10 million.

Harper has played catcher throughout his career, but the Nationals plan to move him to right field, a position that is much less demanding physically.
