Now that Manny Machado is off the board, all the focus goes to Bryce Harper.
With Machado getting a 10-year deal worth $300 million, that appears to be the floor for a Harper deal. That was confirmed even more, as Jon Heyman of Fancred reported that Harper turned down multiple $300 million offers.
Bryce Harper is believed to have turned down multiple offers over 300M in recent weeks. at least 5 teams are believed still in contact, tho Philly, SF and perhaps Wash appear to have more chance than SD (just gave 300M to Manny) and CWS (seemed more focused on MM)— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) February 20, 2019
Heyman continued to say that "at least five teams" are believed to still be in contact with Harper and his representation.
The teams who have been linked to Harper this offseason are the Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants, Washington Nationals, San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox.
Of those teams, the Padres seem to be out after spending big money on Machado and the White Sox seemed more focused on Machado. That could change after they missed out on the star infielder.
Based on the offers he has recently rejected, per @JonHeyman, it seems Bryce Harper is expecting to earn more than Manny Machado.— MLB Trade Rumors (@mlbtraderumors) February 20, 2019

The Phillies are considered the favorites at this point in time, and there are reports that he could sign there in the coming days. The Giants and Nationals appear to be on the periphery right now.
