• Everyone is wondering where Bryce Harper is going to sign and for how much money. In the latest saga surrounding his free agency, Harper has “believed to have” rejected multiple offers over $300 million.

• The Tigers have boosted their roster by signing two-time All-Star Josh Harrison to a one-year deal.

After three-and-a-half long months of discussion about where Manny Machado was going to land (and that’s not even factoring in the years of rumors while he was still under contract), the circus finally came to an end on Tuesday as the four-time All-Star infielder agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the Padres. After several weeks of worries that Machado and Harper would end up signing for way below market value, it now appears likely that both will get the deals that most have expected them to all offseason.
