Strasburg’s huge Nats deal

Washington Nationals ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg is poised to end his career with the World Series champions after agreeing terms on a record seven-year, US$245-million deal, US media reports said on Monday. Strasburg, World Series MVP after the Nationals’ upset of the Houston Astros last season, had entered free agency after opting out of the final four years of his contract. But the 31-year-old right-hander will return to the Nationals next season after reaching agreement on what will be a record deal for a Major League Baseball pitcher if confirmed. The previous highest pitcher’s contract was the US$217 million paid out to David Price by the Boston Red Sox.
