The Philadelphia Phillies have landed a huge star by giving him a huge contract. Trea Turner will join the Phillies on an 11-year, $300 million contract. This news comes just a month or so after the Phillies fell just short of winning the 2022 World Series.
FOX’s Ken Rosenthal confirmed the news on Twitter on Monday afternoon.
Turner began his career with the Washington Nationals in 2015, winning the World Series with the team in 2019. He was then traded to the Dodgers as the Nationals began a rebuild. He’s a two-time All-Star, a National League Batting Champion, and has won two Silver Sluggers. Turner has also hit for the cycle three times.
In 2022, Turner led the league in plate appearances and at bats (708, 652). He hit 21 home runs and had exactly 100 RBI, while scoring 101 runs of his own. It was his second All-Star and Silver Slugger season, but missed the top 10 in MVP voting by one position.
