Philadelphia Phillies Free Agents, Payroll & Contracts 2022-23

Who are the Phillies free agents and what does the team’s payroll look like heading into 2023? Boardroom dives in.

The Philadelphia Phillies keep fightin’.

As the last team to qualify for the 2022 postseason, the Phillies were the first team to punch their ticket to the World Series after defeating the San Diego Padres in the National League Championship Series. Fittingly, Philadelphia and San Diego sat as the No. 4 and No. 5 teams in terms of team payrolls heading into the 2022 MLB season.

Some of that comes from Bryce Harper‘s massive 13-year contract, which he signed in 2019. Some of it is due to the wheeling and dealing done by John Middleton and David Dombrowski to bring players like Nick Castellanos and Kyle Schwarber to Philadelphia. With a lot of big names locked up for the next few seasons, what does the team’s payroll look like following the team’s World Series run?

Boardroom dives deeper into Philadelphia’s balance sheet and roster details, including the upcoming Phillies free agents set to hit the open market this winter.
