Aaron Nola isn’t going anywhere.
The Phillies and Nola have agreed to a seven-year contract worth $172 million, a source confirmed.
In the young MLB offseason, the Phillies made it a priority to re-sign the starting pitcher, who has been with the organization since being drafted in 2014. The seven-year deal will extend him through the 2030 season, which will mark his 16th year in Philadelphia.
If he keeps pitching, he will pass Steve Carlton (15 seasons) as the longest-tenured Phillies catcher. He will also be just two seasons behind Mike Schmidt as the longest hitting Phillies player with 18 seasons.
It is a big deal.
For another seven years, we will be able to look forward to Nola’s days at Citizens Bank Park…
Aaron Nola is still a Phillie!!!! Happy Halloween To You!

Aaron Nola made his Phillies and Major League debut on July 21, 2015.
Nola is now signed with the team through 2030. Nola will throw 16 years in Philadelphia when all is said and done.

I’m so glad Nola is back in Philly! I’ve never seen him in any other uniform than a Phillies uniform! Players want to be on the Phillies and nobody wants to play against us ✌🏻 #RingtheBell

Welcome back, Noles. Actually, welcome home.
