It’s been pretty quiet to-date when it comes to juicy Cubs rumors. But with Winter Meetings approaching, we have some Bryce Harper news to share.

Superstar free agent Bryce Harper is still on the market and the Chicago Cubs still have the chance to pick up the former MVP and Rookie of the Year. In terms of Cubs rumors, we haven’t heard much – in fact, to the contrary. We’ve heard next to nothing. So, what’s the latest update on who’s pushing hard for him?

For all the talk this offseason about how the Cubs don’t have enough money to sign Bryce Harper, realistically, the former Nationals outfielder could absolutely still land on the North Side.

All it would take is a commitment to spend from owner Tom Ricketts and a good pitch from Theo Epstein, which will all know the Chicago president of baseball operations always has up his sleeve.

But while Cubs fans may still be wondering whether ownership is ready to go all-in on Harper, the sweepstakes are only heating up. More teams are meeting with Harper, with some of the usual suspects in the mix and others coming as more of a surprise.
