Dodgers enter Bryce Harper sweepstakes

Grant SmithDec 06, 2018

In addition to the Dodgers and White Sox, the Nationals, Yankees, Phillies, Cubs, Padres, Astros and Cardinals are expected to be among the teams showing interest in the slugger.

Free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper is being pursued by several major league teams, but the news that the Los Angeles Dodgers were among the teams was especially highlighted yesterday.

Regardless of who was there, Harper's pursuit is problematic for the Dodgers. The Dodgers reportedly sent Magic Johnson, who is part of a group of investors who owns the Dodgers and the current president of basketball operations of the Lakers, to court Harper.

"Anything to get him here you know, if he needs Nelly tickets or tickets to a hockey game I think we should you know give it to him", he said.

Harper, 26, is a from Las Vegas-less than 300 miles from LA-and a big Golden Knights fan. Also worth noting, this year's Winter Meetings are being held in Harper's hometown.

Harper has plenty of suitors on the free-agent market after bashing 184 homers in his first seven seasons.
