Bryce Harper has made his choice — and it’s the Phillies.

NBC Sports Philadelphia reports Bryce Harper is signing with the Phillies.

Details are the deal have yet to come down.

This is a huge get for the Phillies, who are acquiring the star from the Washington Nationals, where Harper has played since that team selected him first in the draft in 2010.

The All-Star slugger, who’s been named everything from the National League’s Most Valuable Player to the NL Rookie of the Year to the Silver Slugger, batted .279 through the 2018 season with 184 home runs.

Phillies principal owner John Middleton had made it clear that the team was willing to pay what was needed to land Harper or the other big fish of baseball’s free agency, Manny Machado.
