The Los Angeles Dodgers attempted to acquire Bryce Harper before the non-waiver trade deadline in July and again in August when they claimed him off waivers. The deal did not include a no-trade clause, per the same report. "For an owner to know the rocket ship of economic opportunity is just blasting off because the player is just entering the prime of his career".
