The Washington Nationals met with Scott Boras last month to discuss a potential long-term contract extension with Bryce Harper.
"We had a meeting with the Washington ownership about a month ago, just for some preliminary discussions," Boras said. "Other than that, it's probably something that we'll address as time goes forward."
On Wednesday, Mike Rizzo confirmed that a meeting took place between Boras and Washington's ownership.
"It's a huge commitment for ownership," the general manager said. "There's a lot of things, when you talk about those type of numbers for a particular player, when I always talk about those type of deals, you're signing the person more so than the player.
"I'm not going to read too much into it. It was a preliminary conversation. It's something that we wanted to do. We'd like to get more momentum and obviously everyone's heart is in the right place, and we'll see where it takes us."
