Bryce Harper Rumors: Phillies, Giants, Cardinals Are Possibilities After Rejecting Nationals' Contract

Undeterred by last winter’s free-agent freeze Scott Boras is even more himself

Harper will test the market in search of a more lucrative contract this winter along with other notable free agents, such as infielder Manny Machado.

It was reported Wednesday that Bryce Harper turned down a 10-year, $300 million contract offer from the Washington Nationals, the team's seemingly final attempt to keep him from exploring the free agent market.

"Offers come to you by the original club prior to free agency are merely olive-branch offers to let you know of great interest in the player and wanting to define a continued relationship with the player", Boras said. By offering the qualifying offer, the Nationals can at least receive a draft pick if Harper signs elsewhere. Hence why so many players have taken so long to sign contracts in recent years. 2015, Game has expanded by BILLIONS more since then. Now, the Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals all have a chance to land the All-Star. That might be a price tag too high for most of the league. Of course, how much Harper will make is just one question.

In order to afford Harper, the Yankees might have to explore the option of dealing Stanton, who has a no-trade clause.

"It's going to be a challenge to put the best product on the field, and that could include Harper and it could be doing things without Harper, " Rizzo said.

There was the theory that Harper wanted to play for the Cubs alongside buddy Kris Bryant.

The 26-year-old outfielder posted the second-worst batting average of his career last season at.249, but he also walked a career-high 130 times while hitting 34 homers and driving in 100 runs. Not just because Harper followed Philadelphia star athletes Joel Embiid and Rhys Hoskins on Instagram, nor just because Harper declined a long-term deal with the Washington Nationals on the last day of the 2018 season.
