MLB Rumors: Bryce Harper will 'eventually' sign with Phillies?

MLB Rumors: Bryce Harper will 'eventually' sign with Phillies?

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.

And in strictly financial terms, they are probably going to be right about that, if it's true the bidding starts at 10 years and $300 million, which is what Harper reportedly turned down from the Washington Nationals.

Boras said he defines "generational player" as: 1.

The Post reported on Tuesday that the offer didn't include any opt-outs and was less than the $400 million some have speculated Harper would receive after he and his agent Scott Boras held discussions throughout September. Nightengale now says that the Dodgers aren't interested in Harper, and the Cubs, ironically, seemed to put a dent in their chances to be able to afford Harper when they exercised Cole Hamels' $20 million option for 2019 last week.

If the Phillies have indeed signed Harper, it would give them one of the best players baseball has seen in this generation. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante.




He has 10 years left on a 13-year, $325 million contract where he'll be making between $26 million and $32 million every year through the 2028 season.

Puig hasn't emerged into the superstar the Dodgers hoped he would be, and he's under team control for one more year before he can become an unrestricted free agent in 2020. Even though Harper is still only 26, a 14-year deal with an average annual value of $30 million per season felt a bit excessive. The Phils inked a new TV deal four years ago that not only pays out a total of $2.5 billion in rights fees; it also comes with a 25 percent ownership stake in Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia that could be worth billions more.

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

Getting his deal off the books would not only allow the Yankees to sign Harper and play him every day at first base but would not break the bank should they pursue big-name pitchers to improve their greatest weakness, the starting rotation.
