With Spring Training just weeks away, the biggest free agents on the market, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper, remain unsigned.  Over the weekend a picture of a couple of Bryce Harper Phillies bats hit the internet.


This sparked rumors that the Phillies had the bats made because Harper had signed with Philadelphia.  According to sources at the makers of the bats, that isn’t the case.  The bats were not ordered by the Phillies or Harper.  They made the bats just in case he signs with them.

The latest on the top free agents is that the White Sox remain the favorites to land Machado and the Phillies are still the favorites to land Harper.
