While it's unclear if contract terms were discussed with Harper, it's hard to envision the Giants being in position to sign him to a long-term deal. (16:00) Is the Nationals offer to Harper still on the table? Many of those same teams have been reported as being interested in free agency's other big name, Manny Machado. One of the teams that have been rumored to potentially make a run at Harper is the New York Yankees who are already stacked with power hitters like Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

With that being said, Judge has only seen eight innings of major league ball in center field, and it would be highly unlikely that the Yankees would move him there.

It has been a quiet winter in the Bay, with Derek Holland re-signing and Drew Pomeranz arriving as a free agent being the headline news.

The president also renewed his often-repeated falsehood that China was paying the United States import duties on its exports. The White House said in a statement that the sides made progress but much work remained to be done.

After the Dodgers signed outfielder AJ Pollack, they will not sign Harper. Reports have come out in the last few hours that Harper is leaning towards signing with the Philadelphia Phillies, bringing a once in a lifetime talent to the City of Brotherly Love.

"Wherever he wants to play, wherever he wants to play - we'll make it work", Judge said. They join the Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox as the known suitors for the 26-year-old. After signing former Gold Glove award victor Troy Tulowitzki and DJ Lemahieu, the Yankees do not look like they will be signing Machado. San Francisco is desirable for him because its close to Vegas.

The odds at this late offseason date are not high that either player ends up with the Yankees.
