Dodgers offered Puig to Nats in Bryce Harper trade

Dodgers offered Puig to Nats in Bryce Harper trade”

It would take a hefty contract to sign Harper, though, and it remains to be seen if the Dodgers are willing to dish that out.

The Nationals have removed their 10-year, $300 million offer, but still remain hopeful they can keep Harper in town.

Harper, 26, was selected No. 1 overall by the Nationals in the 2010 MLB Draft and made his major league debut in 2012. According to reports, the Nats' offer is now off the table, but the team is still open to a deal.

"He's shown the type of player he is, and now he's a grizzled veteran, " Rizzo said.

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.

Washington tried to lock up Harper with one of the richest deals in baseball history before he became a free agent, but he opted to test the market.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Cardinals do not have that much interest in Harper, despite fans and the media linking them to the star outfielder. Harper's agent, Scott Boras, has a history of extending contract talks with his free agent players beyond the holiday season. Harper and Boras reportedly had expected bidding to start at 10 years for $350 million. Nightengale says that Harper is seeking a 13-year deal that tops the average annual value of $34.42 million that Zack Greinke now has in his deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Harper is a 6-time All-Star with 184 home runs, 521 RBI and a.900 OPS in his career.

The general consensus at the GM meetings had the Phillies as favorites to land Bryce Harper. Though it feels unlikely that he'll have a better season than his 2015 National League MVP season - a season in which he hit.330 with 42 home runs and a staggering 9.3 fWAR - many of his best career years should still be in front of him.
