The MLB trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET and Bryce Harper could be on his way out of Waashington.

One of the biggest names in baseball could be changing teams before Tuesday is over as 2015 NL MVP Bryce Harper is available for trade.

The Nationals have made the playoffs four of the last six seasons and finished second in the NL East the two seasons they missed out. This year, however, Washington (52-53) is third in the NL East, 5 1/2 games behind the first-place Phillies.

Harper is in the last year of his contract and expected to be one of the biggest free agents on the market this winter. With Washington’s 2018 playoff hopes fading and all the question marks surrounding Harper’s free agency, a trade would make sense for the Nationals.

Harper is still owed $7 million for the remainder of the season, which could affect if teams near the $197 million salary cap, like the Dodgers and Yankees, look to make a move for the six-time All-Star.
