It looks like Philadelphia Phillies are gonna have some competition in the pursuit of free agent Bryce Harper. In a unexpected turn events around Harper’s landing spot, it appears the Los Angeles Dodgers have reentered the bidding for Bryce Harper.
Sources: The Dodgers are back in the mix for Bryce Harper. Club officials, including manager Dave Roberts, were seen in Las Vegas on Sunday. https://t.co/cBRqZx4kOO

The Dodgers have a ton of money and aren’t afraid to spend it usually. However, before we get too excited, it looks like if they are getting back into the fray, it’ll be on a shorter-term deal.
If the Dodgers get serious about Harper, it almost certainly would be on a VERY short-term deal, in keeping with their operating philosophy. Phillies, on the other hand, prepared to do a monster, long-term contract.

Hard to tell if that would be a one year deal or a few years but if Harper is a Dodger it would be short term.
