Bryce Harper Turned Down $300 Million Contract From Nationals

Report: Bryce Harper Won't Be Signing With Yankees

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.

Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors predicted last week that Harper would sign a 14-year/$420 million contract. He did start in a home All-Star Game at Nationals Park, but Harper hit just.214 in the first-half of the 2018 season. According to reports, the Nats' offer is now off the table, but the team is still open to a deal.

This comes on the heels of Chelsea Janes and Barry Svrluga of The Washington Post reporting Tuesday that Harper rejected a $300 million offer from the Washington Nationals, the team that he's played his whole career with after they made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. But if they do, it nearly certainly won't be that deal, and Mike Rizzo acknowledged Tuesday his team can not afford to wait around.

While Harper could be exploring other options, it's still possible he might return to the Nationals. Indeed, the Nationals need starting pitching, a catcher and to upgrade their bench. If LA does decide to make a run at Harper, they would likely still look to move Puig this offseason. It will cost them roughly $13 million.

In a story titled "Bryce Harper will sign with the Phillies". "There is a reality that we would love to sign him, but we may not". It would take a hefty contract to sign Harper, though, and it remains to be seen if the Dodgers are willing to dish that out. Zack Greinke ($34 million), David Price ($31 million) and Clayton Kershaw ($31 million) all got more. Max Scherzer got exactly $US30 million. But no position player has ever earned an average annual value of more than $27.5 million (Alex Rodriguez and Yoenis Cespedes). It was not enough.
