The San Diego Padres are scheduled to meet Las Vegas agent Bryce Harper on Thursday, sources told ESPN.
The Athletic first reported the news.
What happens if half of the league forget about lighting the hot stove? Three weeks after the spring training, we experience it in an offseason trend that will stay.
Manny in pinstripe? Bryce in the Bronx? The rumor mill could tell us something else. But Bombers fans like big offseason spills – and usually get them.
It is not known if the Padres are to exercise their due diligence or if they are serious about signing Harper.
The Washington Nationals, Philadelphia Phillies, and Chicago White Sox are the only other teams known to have shown any serious interest in Harper.
Harper, the National League Rookie of the Year 2012 and 2015 MVP, led the Nationals with 34 Homer, 100 RBIs and 130 walks last season. He built the team's lead with 103 runs and made the all-round Star team for the sixth time in seven seasons.
According to several reports, Harper rejected a 10-year offer from the Nationals, which cost $ 300 million free agent.
