Wheeler turned down a larger offer from the Chicago White Sox that was in excess of $120 million, sources told Passan.

The Phillies, who have a new manager, Joe Girardi, needed rotation help, and Jake Arrieta is entering the final year of his contract with the club.

He has made 60 starts over the past two seasons, going 23-15 with a 3.65 ERA with 374 strikeouts in 377⅔ innings.

In 2018, he bounced back with 29 starts and had career bests in wins (12) and ERA (3.31).

The Phillies were coming in at 16-1 odds to win the 2020 World Series.  It is best to lock this price in early considering they have new manager Joe Girardi.  This could be the team to beat in 2020.
