MLB Rumors: Bryce Harper, Manny Machado Receive ‘Serious’ Offers From This Team

White Sox’ rival for Manny Machado gets down to business

Heyman noted that talks are believed to have "intensified" between the two sides.

Back on Saturday, Jim Bowden, the former front office exec turned insider, said that Harper appeared to be "rounding third" on a deal with the Phillies. He's a six-time All-Star and already has a N.L. MVP award under his belt.

The San Diego Padres have been heavily involved in their pursuit of Manny Machado, and by the sounds of it, they've made a very competitive offer.

The Bryce Harper derby does not appear to be trending in the right direction for the San Francisco Giants, late entrants to the field.

However, as Heyman emphasized, nothing is imminent as of now.

Things are heating up with Harper. However, the Harper-Phillies match is "the most likely", per Heyman.

But this is one of those "big, if true" situations that portends a potential conclusion to Harper's 3.5-month free agency tour. The market for him hasn't been as robust as once expected, but even when you factor in California taxes and any deferrals, that is a life-changing amount of money for any person. They have remained more connected to Machado, represented by Dan Lozano, and traded for his brother-in-law Yonder Alonso and signed a good friend, Jon Jay, as enticements.
