Stephen Strasburg to Return to Nationals on $245 Million Deal.

Strasburg's seven-year deal is a new record for a pitcher.

The deal surpasses David Price's seven-year, $217 million deal with the Boston Red Sox.

Strasburg will also make more per season than Zack Greinke's $31.5 million.

We are very excited to welcome Stephen Strasburg and his family back to the Washington Nationals.

Lerner, Nationals owner, via statement.

We would not have won the 2019 World Series or accomplished everything we have these last 10 seasons if not for Stephen's many contributions.

Lerner, via statement.

Strasburg opted out of the final four years of his contract to become a free agent.

He became the first pitcher to win five games without a loss in a single postseason.

Strasburg also tied Curt Schilling for the second most strikeouts in a single postseason with 47
