Report: Rival agents expect Bryce Harper to get over $350 million
One of the biggest questions of the coming offseason is just how much Bryce Harper will prove to be worth.
The 26-year-old will be one of the most sought-after free agents ever, and has a good chance of signing the richest deal ever. How rich will it be? While it’s too soon to tell, some insiders think they have an idea.
According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, two agents believe Harper will get at least $350 million in free agency, and possibly more. That would easily beat the record $325 million deal Giancarlo Stanton originally signed with the Miami Marlins.
That’s a bit less than the numbers that some were throwing around before Harper posted an underwhelming 2018 season, at least by his standards. That said, it’s not far off. At this point, it would be a surprise if he didn’t end up signing a record contract in terms of total value.
