Report: Padres never made formal offer to Harper

The Score

Any dreams of the San Diego Padres signing baseball's top two free agents to megadeals this offseason can probably be put to rest.

The Padres never submitted a formal offer to Bryce Harper, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Instead, they reportedly floated a "proposal" that was not to Harper's liking and no counter was offered.

After infielder Manny Machado signed a 10-year, $300-million contract with the Padres last week, the team was reportedly kicking the tires on Harper as well. It appears that door is now shut.
