Bryce Harper is still a free agent a few days after Manny Machado went off the market. But on Thursday we learned the Philadelphia Phillies believe they’ll be able to work out a deal with the six-time All-Star.
The Phillies are now reportedly confident they’ll land Harper. Negotiations between the two parties have picked up since Machado agreed to a record $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres.
There was also a report on Thursday that the Chicago White Sox will not be bidding on Harper despite being heavily involved in the chase for Machado.
It appears we’re getting closer to a resolution in Harper’s free agency and all signs point to him playing in Philadelphia.
