Bryce Harper

Interested Teams: Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Nationals, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, Chicago Cubs

Best Fit(s)?

We’ve already gone in depth on Harper’s potential market, but some things have changed since then. For instance, the Nationals have reportedly had a number of meetings with their former outfielder and agent Scott Boras. Let’s also not forget that the Dodgers have cleared some payroll (and an outfield roster spot) by trading away Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp.

You can never count out Washington based off their history and how Boras has dealt directly with ownership. However, it’s hard to think the Dodgers aren’t going to try and make a push for the former NL MVP, despite their reported desire for a right-handed impact hitter. Then, of course, there’s always the Phillies, who have money burning in their pocket and are going to have a face-to-face meeting with Harper soon.

At this point, it seems most likely that Philly will land him based on the circumstances, but anything can happen.
