Phillies to have face-to-face meeting with Harper

New York Yankees Can Utilize Top Pitching Prospect In 2019

Most believed Bryce Harper would have a bevy of suitors on the open market.

Perhaps if NY whiffs on Machado, they'll enter the Harper sweepstakes.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported Thursday that the White Sox have already made an offer to Machado, adding that they're more engaged on him than Harper at the moment, not entirely a surprise considering Machado is expected to make his decision before Harper's.

With all the uncertainty, especially with fellow free agent Manny Machado on the verge of making his decision, Harper is primed to become the prized signee of the 2018-19 Major League Baseball offseason.

However, if the Phillies, Chicago White Sox, or some other team were to offer, say, a full 10-year deal at or above $400 million total value, such security would likely prove hard to turn down. The deal on the table was said to be a long-term contract, but worth around $200 million and not the $300 million offer the shortstop was targeting. The Dodgers still have plenty of moves to make this off-season but which route they take will depend on if they can bring the crown jewel of this year's free agency back to Los Angeles.

The infielder held meetings with the White Sox, Yankees, and Philadelphia Phillies last month, and his market could gain further clarity in the next few weeks.

There have been reports that Manny Machado and Bryce Harper do not want to play in Philly, and the meeting taking place in Las Vegas definitely supports that idea.

It's still unclear whether the Nationals' interest is still on the terms they discussed at the end of the season, or whether the team's priorities have changed. "Maybe even into spring training". Remember the Washington Nationals' 10-year, $300 million offer that Harper reportedly rejected?

Meanwhile, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia, the Nationals are not the only team pursuing Harper seriously.
