WASHINGTON - Outfielder Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals came to terms on a $7. Jarrod Wilson Jersey .5 million, two-year contract, avoiding a grievance hearing.Harper will receive salaries of $2.5 million in 2015, and $5 million in 2016 from the reigning NL East champions, according to a person familiar with the agreement who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the deal had not been announced.Harper, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year, had been scheduled to have a $1 million salary in 2015, along with the chance to earn up to $500,000 in roster bonuses. But the Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance on his behalf over whether he could void the final season of the $9.9 million, five-year contract he signed when he was drafted No. 1 overall in 2010.An arbitrator would have heard the grievance this week, but thats no longer needed.On Saturday, Harper skipped the Nationals annual fan festival, which did not sit well with general manager Mike Rizzo.Were disappointed hes not here, Rizzo said, but he chose not to be here because of the grievance.Harpers representatives released a statement from him that day, in which he said he was unable to attend this years event due to matters out of my control.Harper, who turned 22 in October, is already a two-time NL All-Star and one of the Nationals most popular and marketable players.Hes coming off an injury-interrupted season in which he batted .273 with 13 homers and 32 RBIs but thrived in Washingtons NL Division Series loss to the San Francisco Giants. Harper hit .368 with three homers and four RBIs in that four-game series.Mostly a left fielder or centre fielder so far in the majors, Harper is going to move to right field next season, with Jayson Werth switching from that spot to left.I like Harpers arm. Its really strong, Nationals manager Matt Williams said Saturday when asked why the players are swapping positions. The demands of going to right-centre and making that throw are difficult.___AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum in New York contributed to this report. A.J.

Its a great thing. Im proud to bring this organization something they envisioned when they drafted me.Small-market Kansas City endured more than its share of losing in recent years.

Ninety-five per cent of these ... guys werent even born in 85. Its not their fault. These guys played their (butts) off all year.And look where they are now.With Detroit losing to Minnesota, Kansas City trails the Tigers by a game in the AL Central with two to play. If they are tied after Sunday, the teams will play game No. 163 at Detroit on Monday to determine the division winner.Kansas City also maintained a one-game lead in the wild-card standings over Oakland, which won 6-2 at Texas.The postgame celebration eventually returned to the field, where there was more spraying alcohol, more jumping up and down and more pictures, all to the delight of their supporters. Fans chanted Lets go Royals! and some derogatory comments toward Detroit.They held up signs that read MMy playoff beard starts growing today, and Finally. Josh Wells Jersey. That probably summed it up best for Kansas City. Yes, finally, the Royals are back.We know its been emotional, not only for us but for the city itself, which has supported us all along the way, closer Greg Holland said.Guthrie (13-11) could not have been much better, pitching four-hit ball while winning his third straight start.

But Jose Abreu and Conor Gillaspie struck out to end the inning.Holland worked the ninth for his 46th save in 48 chances.Alcides Escobar had two hits, including a leadoff single in Kansas Citys three-run first against Hector Noesi, and the Royals won for the fifth time in six games.Noesi (8-12) allowed six hits in six innings after it looked as if he might get knocked out early.The first three batters each got a hit, starting with Escobars single. Nori Aoki lined a run-scoring triple to right, and Lorenzo Cain had an RBI single for his 14th hit in 30 at-bats. Cain came around from second on Butlers one-out single to make it 3-0.Chicagos Paul Konerko began his farewell weekend by going 0 for 4. The retiring slugger, back in the lineup after sitting out Thursdays game, received loud cheers every time he stepped to the plate, starting with a standing ovation in the second inning.In the Royals, Konerko sees some similarities to Chicagos 2005 championship team with its pitching and timely hitting.I think they have a real good shot to go a long ways, he said.
