Why Isn’t Anyone Signing These Dudes?

29 Jan, 2019

We are two weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training, and we’ve still got plenty of big free agent names left on the board (including Bryce Harper and Manny Machado). That means we’ve got a healthy supply of buzz even as we head toward February.

To give you an idea of what’s out there on Tuesday, we’re here to round up all the notable trade and free agency rumors. As always, our Free Agent Tracker is a great way to catch up on what’s already happened on that front. Make sure you check back throughout the day for updates.

MLB fans and experts alike are still waiting on Bryce Harper’s free agency decision, and the rumors broke out in full force on Tuesday, some even hinting that a Phillies-Harper signing could happen as soon as today. But Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that an immediate signing is not going to happen.

A few things were responsible for fueling the Harper to Phillies rumor craze on Tuesday; BetOnline made the Phillies odds for winning the World Series better (from 16/1 to 12/1), leaked photos of Phillies-themed bats surfaced on social media along with a little bit of trolling from MLB The Show’s Twitter account. Players aren’t the only ones displeased with the pace of this year’s free agency, now it appears that fans are getting fairly restless as well.

The Phillies are in on both Harper and Manny Machado, having met with both prized free agents this winter.
