Cubs reportedly in on Bryce Harper free agency negotiations

Bryce Harper

Bryce Harper free agency negotiations are underway according to a report, and the Chicago Cubs are among the teams involved.

Dan Bernstein, a host on The Score in Chicago, said on his show Friday that Harper negotiations are picking up steam and the Cubs are in.

This is somewhat surprising on a few fronts. First off, there hasn’t been much reporting about his sweepstakes already beginning. Secondly, there were indications earlier this offseason that the Cubs would not be big spenders this winter, so it’s surprising to hear that they would be contending for Harper.

Nevertheless, Harper has been rumored to have interest in playing for the Cubs.

The outfielder rejected a 10-year, $300 million contract from the Washington Nationals, so you can expect him to be seeking more than that. Interestingly, the other Chicago team is said to have interest in Harper as well.
