Harper is seeking a long-term deal and, despite being unsigned just over a month before the start of the season, has given no indication that he is willing to change that demand, sources told ESPN's Jeff Passan. The Phillies are prepared to sign Harper to a lucrative long-term contract.

Despite the low averge, he still hit 34 home runs, drove in a career-high 100 runs and walked a career-high 130 times.
