Bryce Harper turned down multiple offers over $300 million

Bryce Harper turned down multiple offers over $300 million

But for the second consecutive year the free-agent market has been slow-moving, with many teams unwilling to spend lavishly presumably due to luxury tax threshold implications.

At least five teams - the Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants, Chicago White Sox, San Diego Padres and the Washington Nationals - are still believed to be in contact with the six-time All-Star free agent, Heyman reported.

While Machado owns the largest free agent deal, his contract isn't the largest ever in baseball.

"Well I'm wearing my shades so you guys don't see the shock in my eyes", admitted the White Sox executive vice president not long after reports surfaced of Manny Machado's choice to join the Padres instead of Williams' team. That's kind of a big subplot of this part of the season. A four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove victor, he has a.282 career average with 175 homers and 513 RBIs in seven big league seasons. It was also speculated that Machado and Bryce Harper might command as much as $500 million apiece on the open market. "We know who all is on the boat with us and we know which way we're going to sail".

"Ron and I, we love the city of San Diego, we love sports in San Diego, but we're also well aware of the history. We're all just glad he'll hopefully be here with us in San Diego".

Despite earlier reports that San Diego might want to pair both star players in the same lineup, Nightingale has reported that the Padres won't chase Harper any further after signing Machado. The Padres and the Chicago White Sox have been linked to Harper, too, though it seems highly unlikely that Harper would sign with them. He thinks Harper will sign with the Phillies and that it will break "about three minutes" before Machado's introductory press conference Friday. "Jerry, in particular, really stepped up", he said.

"For me, trying and falling short isn't sufficient, so I'm going to take the next few hours to continue to be pretty pissed off about this", said Hahn when talking to reporters shortly after.
