Bryce Harper is the newest member of the Nationals’ organization.
A source with knowledge of the situation told MASNSports.com that the deal between the No. 1 overall draft pick and the Nationals was for $10 million dollars.
The Nationals confirmed the signing early Tuesday morning. Harper signed a major-league deal.
Harper did not attend the College of Southern Nevada’s first baseball practice of the summer today in Las Vegas.
This would mark the second consecutive year that general manager Mike Rizzo and the Nationals were able to iron out a deal with agent Scott Boras, who represents Stephen Strasburg and Harper. Strasburg signed a deal in the 11th hour last season.
The 17-year old Harper hit .443, slammed 31 homers and drove in 98 RBI for the College of Southern Nevada, guiding the Coyotes to an appearance in the JUCO World Series.
