Rival agents expect Bryce Harper to get over $350 million

Bryce Harper

With Harper playing a majority of his games in right fielder the last few years, it makes sense that Puig would become expendable if it meant acquiring a player of Harper's caliber. Nightengale now says that the $300 million offer is no longer in play. The Nationals reportedly made Harper a huge long-term offer at the end of the regular season, but he declined it.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to Harper returning)", Rizzo said.

Harper's agent, Scott Boras, scoffed at reports saying the Yankees would sit out the Harper sweepstakes.

With a strong rotation led by Aaron Nola and Jake Arrieta along with Rhys Hoskins seeming like a player that's only going to get better with experience, there's a lot of potential surrounding this Phillies team heading into 2019, whether it looks that way or not. The Yankees are considered a long shot to sign Harper, but they are among the favorites to land Machado. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante.

Harper headlines one of the most valuable free-agent classes in Major League Baseball history, which also includes infielder Manny Machado, closer Craig Kimbrel and former Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel.

Mexican drug lord El Chapo goes on trial in NY
US District Judge Brian Cogan, prosecutors and defence lawyers on Monday questioned 45 potential jurors , rejecting 17. Until he was recaptured in early 2016 - and extradited to the United States in 2017 - he seemed largely untouchable.

The 26-year-old will be one of the most sought-after free agents ever, and has a good chance of signing the richest deal ever. It may not have been. It will cost them roughly $US13 million. 2018 was a bit of a down year for Harper.

Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag. With that said, he also homered 23 times, drove in 54 runs and walked 78 times prior to the All-Star Break, so his first-half only disappointing by the high standards that he's set for himself. Elite performance, and Boras particularly noted that Harper's 1.109 OPS in his NL MVP 2015 was the only one of the 2010s over 1.100, and just Barry Bonds and Albert Pujols have reached that level in the last 16 seasons. 3.

Part of the thought in signing Harper would be that you may be paying for his peak.

Bryce Harper is set to hit the open market this winter.
