The Bryce Harper saga rumbles on with no decision from the player yet, but the pecking order among the interested franchises seems to be slowly taking shape as the most sought-after free agent and his agent look to land a record-setting deal.

Manny Machado is expected to make a decision on where he'll sign within a week and momentum is building for the Chicago White Sox, sources told Bruce Levine of 670 The Score. The Nats reportedly have followed with another offer worth "much more" than $300 million, but other rumors suggest Harper is OK with waiting for an offer he deems suitable.

According to's Jon Morosi, both Philly and the White Sox view Mike Moustakas as a backup option if they can't sign Machado.

As the offseason continues for the Philadelphia Phillies, all of the main focus for the team this weekend will be on the meeting that is finally taking place with outfielder Bryce Harper. He said that the Yankees, White Sox, Phillies, and a potential fourth team are in the bidding and looking for an answer soon.
