Stephen Strasburg staying with Nationals on record $245 million deal (New York Post)



Stephen Strasburg is staying in the nation’s capital.

The ace right-hander has re-signed with the Washington Nationals on a record seven-year, $245 million contract, The Post’s Joel Sherman confirmed. The contract is the largest ever for a pitcher in total value and average annual value at $35 million per season.

The Yankees will now have to make sure they land Gerrit Cole — who’s set to net a bigger deal than Strasburg — if they want to add a top-of-the-rotation starter.
