Harper has been pretty mum on his decision, though. The Washington Nationals’ star has said on multiple occasions that he would like to stay put in D.C., but he’s unsure if he and the franchise are on the same page when it comes to a contract.

The Dodgers, Giants and Yankees, among others, have also been mentioned as possibilities for Harper in free agency.

The All-Star outfielder is likely seeking a longterm contract worth north of $30 million/year. He and Machado are considered the two top free agents in the class and both are going to get huge deals.
