According to Wallace Matthews, who spoke with an Major League Baseball insider, it remains possible the Yankees may look to move outfielder Giancarlo Stanton in order to make room for free agent outfielder Bryce Harper.

On the last day of Washington's final homestand during the 2018 season, the Nationals reportedly offered Bryce Harper a contract extension worth $300 million over 10 years.

Harper has expressed a desire to remain with the Washington Nationals but they could face a challenge if other clubs are motivated to spend lavishly.

"We've had conversations and we utilized our exclusivity to negotiate with him late in the season through when he became eligible to sign with a team, " Rizzo said. "We will likely get back to that again". He is a six-time All-Star and won the MVP award in 2015. Nobody knows what this offseason holds, " he said. His clients include Nationals pitchers Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, and former Nats outfielder Jayson Werth. Harper, however, rejected the proposal, the report said. "There is a reality that we would love to sign him, but we may not. I think we have a good strategy in place, a good plan in place, and we have started to begin that process and we will see where it takes us".
