Giants making late play to join Bryce Harper sweepstakes

Harper gives the Yankees some additional options in the outfield and perhaps a full-time slot for Giancarlo Stanton at DH, a position held mostly by him past year except for his 37 games in the outfield.

He told TMZ any time a team can add a player of Harper's caliber, it "is going to make them better".

The field competing for Bryce Harper's services may have at least one fresh suitor in the Giants, who recently met with the outfielder as part of a late effort to gauge the possibility of signing him, according to NBC Sports and MLB Network.

"He's got more speed than me, man", Judge said. "Wherever he wants to play".

One issue though is that the Yankees are already stacked with outfielders, with Judge and Harper playing the same position. Clint Frazier and Jacoby Ellsbury are also outfield options off the bench.

While it's unclear if contract terms were discussed with Harper, it's hard to envision the Giants being in position to sign him to a long-term deal. Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are still unsigned as are a handful of other big names.

"Obviously [Harper] is a great player".

"Well, I don't think that scenario is a realistic one for us at this point", Boone said.

Yankees third baseman Miguel Andujar and shortstop Didi Gregorius were being honored alongside Boone at Tuesday's awards dinner.

In the meantime, we sit and wait for any sign of action. However, that may not happen now, as the landscape has changed with new teams in the mix. But neither figure may be attainable now, as Harper's only known offer (10 years, $300 million) came from the Nationals at the end of September. "Make the right choice". "So, it just all depends on where he wants to go". "Make it the right choice for your family".
