  • Report: 8 teams checking in on Harper

Harper calls Las Vegas his home and in this part of the country, where deserts and mountains are plentiful, the whispers of him actualizing his dream to play in NY could come true. Although Yankees general manager Brian Cashman refuted such rumored interest in Harper during the Winter Meetings in December, he and other team officials did meet with Machado late that month.

In the grand scheme of things, San Francisco seems like a destination that would be a ideal fit for Harper.

At the moment, many believe the Phillies are the clear-cut favorites to land Harper since they appear to be a good fit, and have the kind of money he's looking to earn in a hefty contract. Currently, New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has the largest deal at $325 million, which he signed with the Miami Marlins.

Drafted first overall by the Washington Nationals in 2010, Harper has finally reached free agency.

The total worth of Harper's next contract will largely be determined by its length, but the six-time All-Star is expected to ink a deal worth at least $31 million per year, according to Spotrac. That was sometime around October 29. That has only made Harper's situation more confusing, because there is often some noise generated through the media to drive up prices and create bidding wars between teams. Not for a former rookie of the year and MVP, a rare marketable baseball star who, by all indications, still has a prime to play through. Either way, this is big news for all the teams interested in the slugging outfielder, and another sign that this lengthy offseason saga is a long way off finishing. He's been on the trade block all offseason - and before that - as the 27-year-old is both a standout and can't be a free agent until 2021. According to MLB Network, at least eight teams have the 2018 Home Run Derby victor on their radar.

"If he comes over, he makes the team better", Gregorius said.
