Unsurprisingly, Farhan Zaidi, the San Francisco Giants president of baseball ops, fielded no shortage of Bryce Harper related questions at the club’s media day at Oracle Park on Friday afternoon.
Zaidi confirmed that he, CEO Larry Baer and manager Bruce Bochy met with Harper in Las Vegas earlier in the week.
“There’s obviously mutual interest on both sides,” Zaidi continued. “So, we thought it made sense to get together. We had a good conversation over a few hours. He’s obviously got a lot of suitors and a lot of interest.”
“He’s going to have some decisions to make. But, again, I think that’s fair to say that was an expression of our interest level to make a trip out there.”
