MLB Rumors: Bryce Harper Turned Down This Offer From Nationals

Nationals want to re-sign star Bryce Harper Bryce Harper and Manny Machado? Phillies fans shouldn't hold their breath.

At the close of the season, the Nationals made a last-ditch attempt to thwart his free agency by handing over a deal for 10 years and roughly $300 million, according to the Washington Post.

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. It turns out that he rejected a contract offer from the team that very day.

It's always been thought that the Nationals will not be able to out-spend the likes of the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers for Harper's services in 2019 and beyond.

Thought the offer was $100 million short, there were no hard feelings between Harper and the team. "I knew I wanted to get here and put the uniform on right away and just cherish that moment, if it's going to be the last time or not", he told reporters before that day's game.

Harper, who turned 26 last month, is expected to receive the largest contract among the 164 free agents. The offer would put him in a share with Miguel Cabrera for Major League Baseball's seventh-highest salary in 2019, according to Sportrac.

"I'm comfortable with the alternative [to Harper re-signing]", Rizzo said. If an on-base-machine outfielder with 184 home runs in seven seasons doesn't fit into a team's mold, he's willing to transform himself; Boras said Tuesday that Harper can play first base, too, for a team (the Yankees) with a need there.
