According to Wallace Matthews, who spoke with an Major League Baseball insider, it remains possible the Yankees may look to move outfielder Giancarlo Stanton in order to make room for free agent outfielder Bryce Harper. According to reports, the Nats' offer is now off the table, but the team is still open to a deal.

Harper has expressed a desire to remain with the Washington Nationals but they could face a challenge if other clubs are motivated to spend lavishly.

"We took advantage of our exclusivity late in the season [to negotiate with Harper]", Rizzo told the Post. "We will likely get back to that again".
