Bryce Harper turned down 10-year, $300 million offer from Nationals

Report: Bryce Harper Won't Be Signing With Yankees

Report: Bryce Harper Won't Be Signing With Yankees

It's hard to find an executive, scout, or rival agent who doesn't believe that Harper will eventually sign with the Phillies, maybe a month from now when he can drive from his Las Vegas home to Mandalay Bay and make the official announcement himself.

This year's MLB free agent class has been hyped up as one of the biggest in league history.

The Nationals offered Harper a new deal on the last day of the final homestand in September, but Harper's camp rejected it.

"We've had conversations and we utilized our exclusivity to negotiate with him late in the season through when he became eligible to sign with a team, " Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told reporter Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Without casting doubt on any of these reports, it's important to remember how quickly things can change in free-agency, especially as we approach the Winter Meetings, which will begin on December 9 in Harper's hometown of Las Vegas.

Rivers, Gordon leads Chargers past Seahawks 25-17
Carroll was uncertain the status of Carson or strong safety Bradley McDougald for Sunday's game against the NFC West-leading Rams. Given the volume the Seattle passing game saw, Wilson could have had an even bigger fantasy day with more explosiveness.

The total worth of Harper's next contract will largely be determined by its length, but the six-time All-Star is expected to ink a deal worth at least $31 million per year, according to Spotrac. The Los Angeles Dodgers don't have interest. The Nationals wanted to lock up their star, but Harper felt $30 million per year for the next decade wasn't enough money.

Citing a "well-place source", Olney says Harper is "not going to be a Yankee".

Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag.

So where does that leave Harper and the Nationals now?

The 26-year-old outfielder posted the second-worst batting average of his career last season at.249, but he also walked a career-high 130 times while hitting 34 homers and driving in 100 runs. That would make them seem like an unlikely landing spot for Harper, but Castillo reports that they offered Puig as part of a trade for Harper.
