Yankees MLB trade rumors: Giancarlo Stanton to make room for Bryce Harper?

Bryce Harper and Manny Machado? Phillies fans shouldn’t hold their breath

In the meantime, Harper will continue to field offers from other teams in hopes of landing a record-setting deal.

So hefty, in fact, that it is expected to exceed the $300 million mark after he turned down a 10-year offer for that much from the Washington Nationals, the team he spent the first seven years of his career with.

Boras tabbed Harper as a "generational" and "iconic" player - citing the Nationals' stark increase in attendance, television ratings and overall franchise value since Harper joined the team. Harper rejected the deal, electing instead to test the market as a free agent.

As the Major League Baseball offseason gets underway, perhaps the most prized free agent of all time, Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, is now on the open market.

"He's shown the type of player he is, and now he's a grizzled veteran, " Rizzo said.

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.

However, it is becoming more and more clear that the Yankees intend to pass on Harper. Nightengale says that Harper is seeking a 13-year deal that tops the average annual value of $34.42 million that Zack Greinke now has in his deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals in the dugout before the game against the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park on July 26, 2018 in Miami, Florida. He did start in a home All-Star Game at Nationals Park, but Harper hit just.214 in the first-half of the 2018 season. However, the Phillies are now seen as the frontrunner to land Harper this offseason.

That Nationals offer may be off the table in its current form, but Boras rarely lets a high-spending team drop out of the race for a high-priced client.
