Former Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies, according to multiple reports. 

A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press Harper and the Phillies agreed to a $330 million, 13-year contract, the largest deal in baseball history.

The deal was first reported by the MLB Network.
