It's unclear if the White Sox will now try to sign Harper, but he undoubtedly would be seeking a deal as rich as Machado's.
Machado has agreed to a 10-year, $300 million deal with the Padres, a source told USA TODAY Sports and the Associated Press.
Anderson - a three-year veteran - slashed.240/.281/.406 in 153 games last season. They were routed in their two World Series appearances, by Detroit in 1984 and the New York Yankees in 1998.
"For me, trying and falling short isn't sufficient, so I'm going to take the next few hours to continue to be pretty pissed off about this", said Hahn when talking to reporters shortly after.More news: Ozil might be in Arsenal comfort zone, says Wenger
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. He's a four-time All-Star, a two-time Gold Glove victor and has a career fWAR of 30.2 in seven seasons.
In 2018, Machado hit.297/.367/.538 with 35 home runs and 107 RBIs as a member of the Orioles and Dodgers. His 168 home runs since 2013 put him 13th in Major League Baseball and ninth with 203 doubles, which helped the Dodgers reach the Series last fall after his trade from Baltimore. That person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the club did not publicly disclose its offer.
White Sox executive vice president Kenny Williams didn't hide his surprise Tuesday about getting turned down. "Jerry, in particular, really stepped up". "How do you justify it?'" Steinbrenner said in November. The reason why we were going after him in the first place is because we feel we are positioned to do some good things here going forward.
Machado also met with the Yankees, a team that had expressed concern over Machado's remarks about hustling - not hustling, actually - during the playoffs. Alonso said with a smile when asked if he was ready to be done with this line of questioning.
I am on record as saying: When is the Harper story gonna break? "So we're going to get there".
