Yankees MLB trade rumors: Giancarlo Stanton to make room for Bryce Harper?

Harper headlines one of the most valuable free-agent classes in Major League Baseball history, which also includes infielder Manny Machado, closer Craig Kimbrel and former Cy Young Award victor Dallas Keuchel.

Harper, who turned 26 last month, is expected to receive the largest contract among the 164 free agents.

The New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs have both reportedly told Boras they aren't landing spots for Harper. For years now, Boras has been selling Harper as a talent so rare he could command more than $400 million, and when presented with that number this week, he joked, "Why be so limiting?" If LA does decide to make a run at Harper, they would likely still look to move Puig this offseason.

If Harper signs elsewhere, the Nationals outfield next season will consist of Juan Soto in left field, Victor Robles in centre and Adam Eaton in right field with former Gold Glove finalist Michael A. Taylor as a backup in centre.

Last night, reality star Kim Kardashian flew back to Los Angeles, only to discover that she needed to evacuate from her home in Hidden Hills.


Obviously the Yankees could afford to sign either one of them anyway, especially after re-setting their luxury tax at a lower rate by staying under the $197 million threshold in 2018.

"It's going to be a challenge to put the best product on the field, and that could include Harper and it could be doing things without Harper", Rizzo said. It's not hard to see why Phillies managing partner John Middleton, along with general manager Matt Klentak and president Andy MacPhail, would be willing to issue a historic contract to Harper to play his home games at hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park. Boras also has Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg as clients. No deal is official and no announcement has been made.

Boras tabbed Harper as a "generational" and "iconic" player - citing the Nationals' stark increase in attendance, television ratings and overall franchise value since Harper joined the team. Zack Greinke ($34 million), David Price ($31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($31 million) all got more.
