Phillies ace Aaron Nola (30) has suspended contract extension negotiations with his team.
On the 26th (Korean time), Phillies president Dave Dombrowski said in an interview with local media such as the ‘Philadelphia Inquirer’ that he would conclude negotiations with Nola for a contract extension.
We discussed extending the contract with the club, which is about to reach the final year of the 4+1 contract agreed with the club in 2019, but in the end, it seems that an agreement has not been found.
His agent, Joe Longo, said in a statement: 온라인카지노“We had good talks with the Phillies, but we couldn’t reach an agreement at this point. “We will resume discussions after the season is over,” he said.
Nola, who was drafted by the Phillies with the 7th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2014 draft, debuted in the big leagues in 2015 and went 78-62 with a 3.60 ERA in 203 games over 8 seasons.
He was voted an All-Star in 2018 and was named a Cy Young Award finalist. In the 2022 season, he went 11-13 with an earned run average of 3.25 in 205 innings in 32 games. He allowed 1.3 walks per 9 innings, the fewest in the National League. He came in fourth in the Cy Young Award voting.
“He’s a quality pitcher and he’s a really nice guy, but we just couldn’t find a contract that either side would be comfortable with,” Dombrowski said.
There are still opportunities left. Both sides are expected to focus on the season for now and continue discussing the contract after the season is over.
Dombrowski emphasized that he did not completely give up on renewing his contract, saying, “He is open-minded about signing him after the season.”
He added, “We want him to stay with the Phillies for a long time.”
