All signs indicate the Bryce Harper sweepstakes are now a three-horse race between the Dodgers, Giants and Phillies.

The Giants, according to Kerry Crowley of The Mercury News, met with Harper and agent Scott Boras Tuesday in Las Vegas.

"Giants CEO Larry Baer and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi were in Las Vegas, Harper’s hometown, to meet with the coveted free agent and agent Scott Boras for a second time in a matter of weeks," Crowley writes.

"The Giants met with Harper and Boras for the first time at the beginning of February and are one of a handful of teams left pursuing the six-time All-Star. San Francisco has reportedly extended Harper at least one contract offer, but the terms of the offer remain unclear."

This report of a second meeting between the Giants and Harper comes on the heels of a tweet from Smash Mouth (yes, the band Smas Mouth) regarding an internal conflict among San Francisco executives about the length of a potential offer to Harper. 

Representatives from the Dodgers, including manager Dave Roberts, met with Harper on Sunday, while Phillies owner John Middleton also met with the All-Star outfielder last weekend. 

Per OddsShark, the Dodgers are now the favorites to sign Harper.
