There have been numerous reports, both positive and negative, about the status of contract negotiations between the Nationals and Bryce Harper. As the deadline draws nearer, Byron Kerr is now reporting that a deal, "will get done."
With less than two hours remaining until the midnight deadline, a source with knowledge of the situation told MASNSports.com that a deal between No. 1 overall draft pick Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals "will get done".
Now, don't go out and buy our Bryce Harper jersey quite yet. It's important to remember that, "a source with knowledge of the situation," is not official word from the franchise. But when a deadline is looming and the minutes are slowly ticking away, any positive news is welcome.
