Aaron Donald Jersey Elite
The New York Mets have apparently entered the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.According to Fancred Sports' Jon Heyman Authentic Derwin James Jersey , "there are hints" that聽the NL East team hasn't "totally ruled" out the possibility of signing the 26-year-old Harper, who stands to land the richest free agent deal in American sports history.Before Heyman's report, the Mets were not strongly linked to the Harper sweepstakes.聽Per Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports,聽executives believe the Philadelphia Phillies will wind up winners of the Harper derby.The New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals - Harper's team of seven years - have also been reported as potential suitors. Now, the retooling Mets appear to be in on the 2015 NL MVP who has terrified them since he broke into the league six years ago.advertisingLed by powerful sports agent Scott Boras Authentic Aaron Donald Jersey , Harper's camp figures to surpass Giancarlo Stanton's $325 million mammoth deal the Miami Marlins gave him in 2014. That remains the richest contract in North American sports history. Credit: Russell Lansford-USA TODAY SportsHarper has been considered the co-face of baseball alongside LA Angels star Mike Trout since his 2012 rookie season. That year, Harper burst onto the scene as a 19-year-old and led the Nationals to the playoffs for the first time since relocation from Montreal in 2005.A six-time All-Star, Harper is a career .279 hitter with 184 home runs and 521 RBI. Given his age (26), powerful hitting, superb defense and status as one of the most recognized athletes in the world, Harper will have no problem signing a contract worth around $350 million.advertisingWhat This MeansThe Mets obviously have the financial resources to outbid other teams for Harper's services. But this team has a lot of weaknesses all over the roster Aaron Donald Jersey Elite , so it might not make sense to invest all their money into one player.But it seems like the Phillies aren't a slam-dunk to get Harper at this point. With other NL East rivals in the bidding, the Harper sweepstakes could go on for quite a while. But when all is said and done, he'll be getting paid record and historic amounts of cash. PITTSBURGH (AP) — Francisco Liriano is back with the Pittsburgh Pirates.The 35-year-old left-hander agreed to a minor league contract with the team on Monday that includes an invitation to big league camp. If added to the 40-man roster, he would get a one-year contract paying $1.8 million while in the major leagues and $150,000 while in the minors.He also could earn $1.5 million in performance bonuses based on a points system based on appearances, the length of appearances , starts and games finished.He pitched for Pittsburgh from 2013-16, going 41-36 with a 3.67 ERA and 659 strikeouts in 107 starts. He earned the victory in Pittsburgh’s win over Cincinnati in the 2013 NL wild card game, allowing one run over seven innings.Pittsburgh traded Liriano to Toronto on Aug. 1, 2016. He went from Toronto to Houston at the 2017 trade deadline and earned a World Series ring while working out of the bullpen for the Astros. Liriano spent 2018 with the Detroit Tigers, going 5-12 with a 4.58 ERA in 27 games.The Pirates appear set at the top of their rotation with Jameson Taillon, Chris Archer , Trevor Williams and Joe Musgrove. Liriano could pitch his way into the mix for the fifth spot if he can regain the form he showed during his first tour with Pittsburgh.
