PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Trea Turner’s $300 million, 11-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies was finalized on Thursday after the All-Star shortstop passed his physical.
Turner gets salaries of $27,272,727 in each of the next 10 seasons and $27,272,730 in 2033.
Turner will make a $100,000 annual contribution to Phillies charities.
Turner joins a Philadelphia team that made it to the World Series this year before losing to the Houston Astros. He also reunites with slugger Bryce Harper after the two played with the Washington Nationals from 2015-18.
Turner hit .298 with 21 homers and a career-high 100 RBIs this year in his first full season with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He stole 27 bases and scored 101 runs.
The free agent market for the talented Turner likely was enhanced by bigger bases and restrictions on defensive positioning coming to the game next year — two changes that make Turner’s athleticism and defensive versatility even more valuable than before.
He turned down a $19.65 million qualifying offer from the Dodgers in November, joining a stellar group of free agent shortstops that also included Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts and Dansby Swanson.
Turner, 29, broke into the majors with Washington in 2015. The two-time All-Star hit .300 with 192 steals in six-plus seasons with the Nationals, winning the World Series in 2019.
Turner and ace right-hander Max Scherzer were traded to the Dodgers in a multiplayer deal at the 2021 trade deadline. Turner hit .338 with 10 homers and 11 steals down the stretch, and Los Angeles made it to the NL Championship Series before being eliminated by Atlanta.
Turner is a .302 hitter with 124 homers, 434 RBIs and 230 steals in 849 games. He has spent most of his career at shortstops, but he also has made big league starts at second base and in center field.
He would earn $50,000 each for making the All-Star team winning a Gold Glove and earning a Silver Slugger. He would get $500,000 for winning an MVP award, $50,000 for second and $25,000 for third. Turner also would earn $100,000 for a World Series MVP award and $50,000 for a League Championship Series MVP.
His deal includes a full no-trade provision, a hotel suite on road trips and the right to purchase a luxury suite or premium seats for games at Citizens Bank Park.
