Aaron Nola is staying in Philadelphia.
The starting pitcher, who has been a Phillie for his entire career to date, will likely stay in the same uniform until he retires after signing a 7-year, $172 million contract with the club over the weekend.
Nola was joined by Phillies' president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski and general manager Sam Fuld to discuss the new contract on Monday afternoon. If you missed it, you can catch the full press conference below or on our YouTube channel.

One of the three most appealing and accomplished arms on the free-agent market, Nola drew plenty of attention and was believed to have at least a handful of big-market, contending teams pursuing him.
It was a given that his contract would reach or surpass $150 million because that's the price of top-end pitching. The richest pitching contract last offseason went to Carlos Rodon — six years, $162 million — and Nola has a much more substantial track record at the same age (30).
