White Sox reportedly to sign D-backs free agent outfielder Jon Jay

Both clubs have been linked to Harper as well.

Bryce Harper #34 of the Washington Nationals in the dugout before the game against the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park on July 26, 2018 in Miami, Florida. That goes along with what would figure to be an attractive pitch of Machado being the centerpiece of the final phase of the rebuild, playing alongside Eloy Jimenez, Michael Kopech, Dylan Cease and Luis Robert for the next seven years and forming a perennial contender.

In what seems like a make-or-break meeting, the team will reportedly fly a handful of executives to Sin City on Saturday - including owner John Middleton - to meet with Harper and his agent, Scott Boras.

According to Bruce Levine of 670 The Score in Chicago, the free agent stud infielder will be deciding on a team within a week. Levine reported that momentum is building for the White Sox.

The Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox are keeping tabs on Mike Moustakas in the event they are unable to land Manny Machado, according to sources.

Finally, all we can do as fans is await the decision, and hopefully Mr. Levine is correct and it will come sooner rather than later.

Harper opted to test free agency this year after turning down what was reportedly a 10-year, $300 million offer from the Nationals. He also noted that Machado is receiving offers between $25 and $28 million annually. Receive comprehensive coverage of your teams and stream the White Sox easily on your device.
