Bryce Harper turned down 10-year, $300M offer from Nats

Trading for J.T. Realmuto would be a real catch for Phillies | Extra Innings

"We've had conversations and we utilized our exclusivity to negotiate with him late in the season through when he became eligible to sign with a team, " Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo told reporter Tuesday, according to ESPN.

Without casting doubt on any of these reports, it's important to remember how quickly things can change in free-agency, especially as we approach the Winter Meetings, which will begin on December 9 in Harper's hometown of Las Vegas.

It's likely Harper won't be back in Washington after the Nationals star reportedly turned down a massive offer from them, and the 25-year-old probably will seek a lucrative, long-term deal. The Nationals made him a qualifying offer last Friday. According to reports, the Nats' offer is now off the table, but the team is still open to a deal.

Major League Baseball free-agency began on Saturday and the winter meetings will be held from December 9-13 in Las Vegas.

If Harper signs elsewhere, the Nationals outfield next season will consist of Juan Soto in left field, Victor Robles in centre and Adam Eaton in right field with former Gold Glove finalist Michael A. Taylor as a backup in centre. It will cost them roughly $US13 million.

The move coincides with a stiffening of North Korea's sanctions-related rhetoric in recent days. There have been no nuclear test.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to Harper re-signing)", Rizzo added. "I think we have a good strategy in place, a good plan in place, and we have started to begin that process and we will see where it takes us".

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals.

It's not a surprise that the Nationals would try to make sure Harper didn't hit free agency, but this is still pretty interesting.

Zack Greinke ($US34 million), David Price ($US31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($US31 million) all got more. Max Scherzer got exactly $30 million. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $US27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). It was not enough.
