Major League Baseball rumors: Padres offer Machado deal worth $240M

  • Latest Bryce Harper rumors indicate Phillies closing in on signing slugger

According to Nightengale, Harper and the Phillies don't have a deal yet, but "he will ultimately receive more than the 10-year, $300 million contract he turned down from the (Nationals) in September".

"I see Bryce Harper either going to the Phillies or perhaps the Nationals, but I keep hearing there's a lot of momentum and traction on him (Harper) going to the Philadelphia Phillies", Bowden said.

If this feels like deja vu, you wouldn't be wrong.


Another day, another rumor has popped up in the long-running saga of Bryce Harper's free agency. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune goes even further, reporting that the financial terms of the offer are even higher than that. Considering the Giants are loaded with unappealing contracts (such as Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija and Mark Melancon), that report may very well take them out of the running. Here's how Heyman broke it down: spoiler alert, the Phillies are in the lead. Heyman did point out that the Phillies are still in talks with both Harper and four-time All-Star Manny Machado, and Harper is still chatting with other clubs.

Harper met with the Phillies during a tour of potential suitors in early January, but nothing materialized.

Harper, 26, slashed.249/.393/.496 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs, despite struggling for much of the first half of the 2018 season.
