There appears to be movement in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes.

Multiple reports indicate the Philadelphia Phillies appear to have taken the lead in the pursuit of Harper. According to Andy Martino of SNY, rival clubs are beginning to act as if Philadelphia is the front-runner.

This comes on the heels of MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reporting that things have “intensified” on the Harper front, with the Phillies in the lead.

Rumors linking Harper to the Phillies really intensified over this weekend. Nothing is done, but it certainly sounds like this saga may be moving to a close.
