Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are the two biggest names in free agency this offseason. Because of their great statures, the rest of the baseball world will be waiting for their decisions to sign with a club, which may not occur until February, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

• The Yankees have agreed to a deal with five-time All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, who is expected to fill in as their starting shortstop this year as Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery. Obviously, there’s a possibility that those plans will change if the Bronx Bombers end up signing Manny Machado.
