Phillies' Harper seems to hint at Trout's free agency in 2 years
Speaking with reporters after putting on his Phillies uniform in public for the first time, he casually alluded to possibly teaming up with the biggest free-agent fish of all: Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
Trout hails from New Jersey, grew up a Phillies fan, and is poised to hit the open market after the 2020 season. Though the future is unwritten, Harper appears to be planting the seeds for a scenario that includes him and the two-time American League MVP playing in the same outfield together.
The 27-year-old Trout remained mum on the topic of free agency earlier this week, electing instead to focus on the upcoming season with the Angels.
