Bryce Harper rumors: Star free agent gained't think about short-term offers, report says


An concept that not too long ago gained steam on the MLB rumor mill was the Giants leaping into the Bryce Harper sweepstakes, however below the caveat that they’d supply a short-term cope with a excessive common annual worth. Right here to throw some chilly water on the Giants followers who have been hoping for a Harper signing is Jon Heyman: 

Heyman could be very dialed-in on the subject of Scott Boras shoppers like Harper. This is not to say Harper will not be compelled to take a short-term deal, although. He can solely signal what he’s provided. 

The Phillies and presumably the White Sox — and perhaps even the Padres — have been rumored in on Harper, nonetheless, and certainly not less than one group will supply one thing longer than the 5 years the Giants reportedly provided. It does look like the Nationals‘ 10-year, $300 million supply is not in play, but it surely’s at all times attainable they circle again. 

From the place I sit, the concept of Harper to the Giants is just about off the desk after this report. Positive sufficient, later within the day, ESPN’s Buster Olney added this to the dialog: 

Issues appear to be lining up for the Phillies right here, however man, it is taking an awfully very long time. Harper is a six-time All-Star and gained the 2015 NL MVP. He is getting into his age-26 season carrying a profession 139 OPS+ and would change the complexion of any lineup.
