Dodgers contact Nationals re: Bryce Harper

By: coachemup!

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly "checked in" on the availability of Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper in advance of Major League Baseball's non-waiver trade deadline Tuesday.

According to NBC LA's Michael J. Duarte, the Nationals "are still undecided on if they want to sell, but if they do, L.A. is a likely destination."

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported Thursday that the Nationals "have started discussions with teams to gauge interest if they decide to sell." According to Passan, impending free-agent relievers Kelvin Herrera, Shawn Kelley and Ryan Madson have been "of particular interest." 

If the Nationals opt to sell—a decision that will be made by the end of the weekend, per Passan—Harper would undoubtedly cost inquiring teams a king's ransom despite his lackluster consistency.
