  • Harper, Nationals settle on deal, avoiding grievance hearing

    Outfielder Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals will avoid a grievance hearing over his 2015 salary after the sides reached a settlement Sunday night with a two-year, $7.5 million contract, according to a person familiar with the situation. Harper and the Nationals had been at odds over how his salary would be determined because of a rare dispute over the contract he signed as a first-round draft pick in 2010. If the sides had not settled, the Nationals and their most recognizable player would have engaged in a potentially contentious hearing today. Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, believed Harper had the right to opt out of his prescribed 2015 salary ($1.5 million) and into baseball's lucrative arbitration system. The Nationals contended his contract did not include the ability to opt out because such language never had been included in the deal. Harper will make $2.5 million in 2015 and $5 million in 2016. Harper, 22, likely would have made about $2.5 million in 2015 through arbitration, according to an MLBTradeRumors.com estimate, although some in the industry believe he could have made more. In the arbitration system, salaries compound from year to year, so the amount at stake for Harper would be more than just this year's salary.
