The San Diego Padres have already made one big splash in free agency as they’ll sign Manny Machado for a reported $300 million over 10 years, but there could be another surprise signing ahead.
As previously reported, while the Philadelphia Phillies are the assumed favorites to land Harper, sources are noting Harper is unsure about signing with them. Jon Heyman noted just yesterday that Harper’s free agency could extend out a few or even several more days.
Harper is expected to command every bit of the money Machado got if not more. He is already reported to have several long-term offers for $30 million a year.
