Scott Boras Addresses Bryce Harper Market, Says Yankees Still Are In

Scott Boras always is bound to draw a lot of attention during the Major Baseball Winter Meetings.

That didn’t change at all this year in Las Vegas, as the super agent spoke in front of a hoard of media members Wednesday.

Boras addressed a number of issues surrounding his many clients, but most of the talk centered on superstar free agent Bryce Harper.

Boras didn’t give much clarity to when the 26-year old could reach an agreement.

The agent did say conversations have gone far enough where Harper is doing his homework on prospective teams.

Perhaps the biggest highlight of Boras’ press conference was his indication that the New York Yankees are not out on the Harper sweepstakes, despite claims to the contrary from Yankees general manager Brian Cashman on Monday.

Whether the Yankees will remain in the hunt for Harper is yet to be seen, but the All-Star remains the biggest prize on the free-agent market alongside shortstop Manny Machado, who also has been linked to the Yankees.
