Van Wagenen: Mets Have Not Made Offers for Harper or Machado

Brodie Van Wagenen, Jeff Wilpon, and Mickey Callaway appeared on Mike Francesa’s show today to talk about a multitude of topics.

When asked about free agency and the two top guys, Bryce Harper and Manny Machado (both 26-years-old), Van Wagenen had this to say:

“The two big boys do not have offers from us quite yet.”

Francesa then asked if it was possible to which Van Wagenen said the team would have to get “really creative” to fit either of them into their current payroll projections.

Obviously, this is not too surprising for the Mets who would certainly be handing out their largest contract ever if they were to make such a signing.

However, it had been reported that the Mets had “not ruled out” signing Harper so to that extent this is newsworthy.

Jon Heyman of FanCred projects Harper to get the largest contract of the offseason at 11 years and $330 million while he projects Machado to receive a mega-contract of his own at 10 years and $300 million.
