Top 10 MLB Free Agents Still Available

Phillies outfielder Nick Williams not worried about Bryce Harper rumors

Phillies outfielder Nick Williams not worried about Bryce Harper rumors

Machado, four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove victor, reportedly signed a 10-year, $300 million deal with the Padres Tuesday, which includes an opt-out option after the fifth year.

Even though the White Sox signed friends (Jon Jay) and family (Yonder Alonso) of Machado's, it could've come down to the simple fact that he'd rather live in handsome San Diego as opposed to Chicago.

Anybody else think this kid has a future in NY sports radio? Yahoo Sports reported Machado's player option. And being able to make the Tom Brady/Dolphins comparison off the top of the dome was pretty great too.

Both Manny Machado and Bryce Harper appear to be inching closer to the finish line.

Speaking at spring training in Peoria, Arizona, Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler said: "We do not have a deal with any free agent player. We are continuing discussions, and that's all we have to say".

The third baseman's deal with San Diego includes an opt-out clause after five years, according to ESPN.

Its investors include MGM Resorts International, and it has broadcast partnerships with CBS, Turner Sports and NFL Network. Dundon will serve as chairman of the AAF's board of directors, effective immediately, according to the Hurricanes.

"I think the good news for baseball, is we're getting close to the end here and I think we'll know for sure by Friday".

The Padres must be counting on their prospect base to bloom while Machado, just 26, is still in his prime.

Prior to this deal, the Padres total payroll for the upcoming season checked in at $80 million with $20 million of that being accounted for by last winter's big free agent signing, Eric Hosmer.

Commissioner Rob Manfred said the deal, if it goes through, is "a great thing". He also commended Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf for steeping up "in a fashion that is unprecedented".

With the Machado saga over, the Sox are going to "keep moving forward". "So that doesn't change, we're trying to accelerate the curve a little bit but we're still going to take steps forward".
