CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox say they have a strong pitch for Manny Machado and Bryce Harper. Just don’t expect them to sign both star sluggers.
General manager Rick Hahn doused that idea Saturday, saying the White Sox aren’t likely to sign both premier free agents due to concerns about payroll flexibility.
Hahn says the White Sox intend to be active in free agency in the coming years, and signing Machado and Harper “probably limits your flexibility and might not be the strongest move for us long term.”
