White Sox reach 1-year agreement with outfielder Jon Jay

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals reacts after hitting a single in the seventh inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers during game five of the National League Division Series at Nationals Park on October 13, 2016 in Washington, DC. However, a decision from one could be imminent.

According to Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago, the free agent stud infielder will be deciding on a team within a week.

However, according to MLB Network's Mark Feinsand, the momentum has shifted and it is now looking more likely that Harper would return to Nationals after they upped their initial offer. The Philadelphia franchise will meet Harper face-to-face for the first time Saturday, but their main focus, however, was said to be Machado.

Rosenthal's sources also confirmed Harper rejected a 10-year, $300 million offer to remain with the Washington Nationals last year.

Manny Machado reportedly wants to become the highest-paid player in baseball history and he apparently wants to do it in a Yankee uniform, but it's still uncertain if either of those wishes will come true. He also noted that Machado is receiving offers between $25 and $28 million annually. But if Machado is holding out for well over $300 million, then (1) Harper might not be signing for a very long time yet, and (2) for all we know, Harper might be initially asking for something that starts with a four.
