Pitchers and catchers are set to report in about a week, and one of Major League Baseball’s biggest names still doesn’t have a team to call home.
Bryce Harper, who spent his first seven seasons with the Washington Nationals, reportedly has drawn the interest of several teams, including the Philadelphia Phillies, who seemed to be the “clear-cut favorite” to land the star. But most of the MLB offseason has come and gone, and Harper has yet to ink a deal.
There’s been plenty of reports surrounding the 26-year-old regarding where he ultimately will end up. Harper reportedly turned down a massive contract from the Nationals and has had face-to-face meetings with the Phillies. But now it looks as if more team(s) have come out of the woodwork to check in on Harper.
Whoever the mystery teams are, they’re doing a great job staying out of the spotlight while they decide if offering a lucrative long-term deal to Harper is in their best interest.
