Report: Bryce Harper Turned Down $300 Million Contract From Nationals
08 November, 2018, 19:42
In meetings with team owners, Boras said he has made it a point to note in documents shared that "I know that anyone who's done what Bryce Harper has".
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.
Of course, this won't come without a hefty investment considering Harper reportedly declined a massive deal from the Nationals before becoming a free agent.
According to multiple people familiar with the negotiations, the Nationals discussed terms for a new deal with Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, throughout September. It would give them one of the biggest stars in the game.
Harper will enter the open market as one of the most sought-after free agents in recent memory. 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.
The simple answer is the biggest contract in Major League Baseball history.
The good news for the Phillies is that they might be bidding against only a few teams, and perhaps none as attractive as the Phillies. 2018 was a bit of a down year for Harper. The deal did not include a no-trade clause, per the same report. Stanton's contract is over 13 seasons and has an average salary of $25 million.
While Harper rejected the Nationals' initial offer, he can still choose to re-sign with the team.
That $33 million average would, however, fall slightly short of the $34.1 million that Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Zach Greinke makes.
That would fall short of the $400 million some have projected Harper would get.
