Report: Nationals Deal With Harper Worth $9.9 Million

We know Bryce Harper has signed with the Nationals. What we don't know as of yet, are the exact parameters of his deal. Bill Ladson has some clarification.

According to a baseball source, the contract will be about $10 million.

That has been the number reported by most of the people covering this story, but hearing it from Ladson after the deal has already been agreed to, gives it a little bit more credibility.

So we are still awaiting official word, and more details about the length of the contract, but $10 million seems to be the general consensus as far as value.

UPDATE: According to SI's Jon Heyman, Harper will receive a signing bonus worth $6.25 million, while the total amount of guaranteed money in the deal is about $9.9 million.
