  • New York Yankees Can Utilize Top Pitching Prospect In 2019

You'd think turning the calendar to a new year would have provided additional clarity to the Bryce Harper situation, but that's far from the case. With Machado already having very public meetings with those two teams and the Yankees, who have downplayed any interest in Harper, it's been believed that Machado would be the first to sign.

The White Sox have made a formal offer to star free agent Manny Machado, sources confirmed Thursday.

Believed to be closer to $200 million than $300 million, the proposal may not be enough to keep Machado from entertaining other offers.

Razo said his department will continue to investigate the incident and "use all of our resources to bring this killer to justice". Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in posts on Twitter and Facebook that the girl who died was 7-year-old Jazmine Barnes .

For what it's worth, ESPN's Jeff Passan - one of the most respected Major League Baseball insiders - reported on Wednesday that the White Sox are willing to go 10 years. The Nationals reportedly presented him with a 10-year, $300 million contract extension prior to the 2018 regular season coming to a close.

Also worth noting, just a few minutes after this news was released, the Philadelphia Phillies signed free agent reliever David Robertson to a two-year deal. "White Sox will not be giving offer of more than 7 years for either player", Levine wrote.

That could then leave the door open for the Nationals to make a similar offer to the one they reportedly made in September.

The two took part in an exhibition fight that was clouded in uncertainty as to whether or not it was ever going to really happen. As for Mayweather - don't be surprised if he picks up another one of these easy pay day boxing matches in the new year.

The Phillies have always been connected to Harper and are expected to be "a little bit stupid" with how they spend their money this offseason, team president John Middleton told Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports in November. Now that Philly has secured the bullpen piece they have been looking for, they are expected to turn their full attention to both Harper and Machado.

ESPN's Jeff Passan reports that Harper has met multiple times with Nationals' representatives and that staying in D.C.is a distinct possibility for the 26-year-old slugger. One thing is clear and that is that Harper is willing to wait for the right deal and even the right team.
