Major League Baseball star Bryce Harper rejects $300M offer from Nationals

They can not wait for Harper to make his decision - which many in the industry believe will come no sooner than the Winter Meetings in Las Vegas next month - and miss out on the market. A year ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs looked to be the favorites to sign Harper.

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo addressed the Harper situation Tuesday and acknowledged that the team has a talented options in the outfield without Harper if he were to sign elsewhere.

"They did not pay anywhere near [Harper's] $400 million to $500 million in [true value]", Boras said.

The Phillies are one superstar away from seriously contending not only for the NL East title, but for a World Series championship. And the Nationals, of course, could up-the-ante. Those are led by Bryce Harper, who, along with Manny Machado, gives this free-agent class a rarity: not one, but two 26-year-old elite sluggers.

No position player has ever received a deal worth more than $27.5 million average annual value. It may not have been. For those of you without a math degree, $35 million per year over a 13-year period would be $455 million.

However, it is becoming more and more clear that the Yankees intend to pass on Harper.

Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag.

Harper has 184 home runs and 521 runs-batted-in for his career. He did start in a home All-Star Game at Nationals Park, but Harper hit just.214 in the first-half of the 2018 season.

Part of the thought in signing Harper would be that you may be paying for his peak.

The Washington Post and USA Today cited unnamed sources in reporting that the offer was made in September, USA Today saying that the offer officially expired last week when the Nationals lost their exclusive negotiating rights with the star right fielder.
