The Los Angeles Dodgers have re-entered the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.
MLB.com first reported Monday morning that team officials, including manager Dave Roberts, were in the six-time All-Star’s hometown of Las Vegas on Sunday.
Philadelphia Phillies team owner John Middleton met with the free agent on Friday and Saturday sparking rumors that the 26-year-old was about to sign a 10-year deal worth more than $300 million.
Middleton returned Saturday evening to Clearwater, Florida, without a deal but feeling confident about landing the superstar outfielder, according to Philly.com.
Harper batted only .249 in 2018 but had 34 home runs and 100 RBIs.
