On March 20th of 2022, the Philadelphia Phillies announced that they had signed left field pitcher, Kyle Schwarber, to a four-year, $79 million deal: a deal that will have more impact than the franchise can imagine.

Up to that point, Schwarber’s major league journey had been an odd one. He burst onto the scene with the Chicago Cubs in 2015, instantly making a strong impact. 465 hits in each of his first four full seasons in Chicago, and topped with a whopping 38 home runs in an amazing 2019 season. The young power hitter was praised for his leadership, and headed to the playoffs in each of his first four years in the majors.
