Last night Bob Nightengale sent out the below tweet:
The #Phillies will have Bryce Harper or Manny Machado or possibly both in uniform on opening day

Shortly thereafter a source close to the Phillies organization reached out to Branded Sports confirming Bob’s tweet. Our source tells us that one of the big two has verbally agreed to terms with the Phillies. They are expected to be in the city this weekend to make the deal official. They could not disclose which of the two has agreed but with the MLB Show 19 cover release party, thoughts are it is most likely Harper.
Stay tuned as this story develops.
