Stephen Strasburg agrees to deal to return to Nationals

Stephen Strasburg has agreed to a deal to re-sign with the Washington Nationals, according to a report from MLB insider Jon Heyman. Jeff Passan adds that the deal is for $245 million over seven years.

Fantasy Impact

It was known coming into the offseason that the Nationals wanted to re-sign Strasburg, but the question was whether or not they would be able to afford him once he hit the open market and started receiving offers from other teams. Free-agent Zack Wheeler agreed to a five-year, $118 million contract with the Phillies last week, and Strasburg was expected to easily surpass that amount while falling short of what will likely be a record-breaking contract for fellow free agent starting pitcher Gerrit Cole. $245 million is now the likely starting point in any negotiation for Cole.

Stephen Strasburg meeting with Yankees Wednesday

Stephen Strasburg is set to meet with the New York Yankees on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg will be the latest top free agent SP to meet with the Yankees after the Bombers held a meeting with Gerrit Cole earlier this week. New York seems to have concerns that both Cole and Strasburg are more interested elsewhere, but the Yankees certainly have shown an ability to write a check that's been hard to refuse in the past. Strasburg would be negatively impacted by a move to the American League, much less the AL East, but he would still be an elite arm come draft day.

Stephen Strasburg declines qualifying offer

Stephen Strasburg rejected his one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer.

Fantasy Impact

As expected. Strasburg now has draft pick compensation tied to his contract status but that won't be an issue for the World Series MVP. He's going to land a mammoth contract anyways.

Stephen Strasburg receives qualifying offer from Nats

The Nationals extended a one-year, $17.8 million qualifying offer to Stephen Strasburg.

Fantasy Impact

Strasburg opted out of the final four years of his contract and is now set to test free agency. The World Series MVP should do very well for himself this winter.

Stephen Strasburg reportedly planning to opt out of contract

Nationals starting pitcher and World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg plans to opt out of the final four years and $100M of his contract today and become a free agent, according to a report from ESPN MLB insider Jeff Passan.

Fantasy Impact

Despite having $100M remaining on his contract, Strasburg will likely get more than that on the open market due to both his career thus far and recent success. In the 2019 regular season, Strasburg pitched to a 3.32 ERA with 251 strikeouts over 209 innings.
