‘Bank On It’: Phillies Lead Race To Sign Bryce Harper, Report Says

  • Report: Bryce Harper Won't Be Signing With Yankees

Of course, this won't come without a hefty investment considering Harper reportedly declined a massive deal from the Nationals before becoming a free agent. Hence why so many players have taken so long to sign contracts in recent years.

Bryce Harper made it clear at the last home game of the 2018 season that he enjoyed playing for the Washington Nationals.

The Dodgers offered Puig in a trade, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, but the two sides could not strike a deal.

Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper was offered a 10-year, $300 million contract by the club towards the end of the 2018 season, according to ESPN.

If the Phillies have indeed signed Harper, it would give them one of the best players baseball has seen in this generation.

For some time now, as it became apparent Harper would enter free agency this year, it was speculated that he would become a New York Yankee.

The free agent outfielder, touted to be more popular than the Liberty Bell, looks to be headed to Philadelphia, the city of Brotherly Love. They can not wait for Harper to make his decision - which many in the industry believe will come no sooner than the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas next month - and miss out on the market.

"Bank on it", Nightengale wrote of the Phillies signing Harper. For the moment, it seems he and Boras will explore options elsewhere.

The 2015 National League MVP, Harper hit.249 last season with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs as the Nationals missed the playoffs.

Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. Max Scherzer got exactly $US30 million. The Nationals were willing to make a strong commitment.
