MCCUTCHEN BAGGED, HARPER, MACHADO STILL IN PHILS’ REACH!

Says ESPN:

Signing Andrew McCutchen doesn’t remove the Philles from either the Bryce Harper or Manny Machado sweepstakes.

In fact, with these big free agents waiting longer and longer to sign these days — J.D. Martinez and Eric Hosmer didn’t sign until late February last offseason, for example — the Phillies ran the risk of not making any significant additions if they waited for Harper and Machado to make their decisions.

So give GM Matt Klentak and the Phillies’ front office credit for moving relatively early this offseason on a couple major deals, trading for Jean Segura and now signing McCutchen.
