Despite repeated rumors indicating that the San Diego Padres may also look into signing Bryce Harper, there isn’t any real indication that will happen.

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Harper to the Padres is simply “not happening,” with the Padres looking to spend the remaining money on other areas.

Between this and the fact that Harper’s old team has publicly ruled itself out of the running, it’s increasingly looking like it's Philadelphia or bust for the top remaining free agent. That’s not exactly great news for Harper's agent, Scott Boras, who was likely hoping for a competitive bidding war.
