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.
With Harper playing a majority of his games in right fielder the last few years, it makes sense that Puig would become expendable if it meant acquiring a player of Harper's caliber.
Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper was offered a 10-year, $300 million contract by the club towards the end of the 2018 season, according to ESPN. The deal did not include a no-trade clause, per the same report.
"I'm comfortable with the alternative (to signing Harper)", Rizzo said Tuesday.
Gareth Southgate: I last spoke to Wayne Rooney in April
England captain Harry Kane has given his backing to the honouring of former skipper Wayne Rooney in an global friendly against the United States next week.
Without casting doubt on any of these reports, it's important to remember how quickly things can change in free-agency, especially as we approach the Winter Meetings, which will begin on December 9 in Harper's hometown of Las Vegas. 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. It may not have been. It will cost them roughly $13 million.
In order to afford Harper, the Yankees might have to explore the option of dealing Stanton, who has a no-trade clause.
Harper's contract season of 2018 was a mixed bag.
The six-time All-Star has hit 184 home runs and driven in 521 RBI over his seven-year career. "He has done a lot in the game already, and he is just scratching the surface".
"He will be standing in right field with the Phillies on March 28 at Citizens Bank Park when they open the season against the defending NL East champion Atlanta Braves", Nightengale added.
