Live MLB free agency updates: Holding pattern continues with Bryce Harper and Manny Machado

We've said it before, we'll say it again: the Bryce Harper and Manny Machado free agent decisions are still a ways away from being made — even though spring training is less than a month from today.

However, Tuesday will likely be a busy day for the Phillies outside of their prolonged wait for a monster free agent signing. The Baseball Hall of Fame will announce its 2019 class (around 6 p.m.) which will more than likely include the late, great pitcher Roy Halladay and potentially a few other players with Phillies ties like Scott Rolen and Curt Schilling.

The team is also holding an open locker room with players currently on the team, like Aaron Nola and Rhys Hoskins this afternoon for media members, so news will likely stem from interviews with current players throughout the day.

None of that means there will be no free agent or trade news around Major League Baseball, of course, as minor signings and trades pop up throughout the league every few days.

As we do every day as the hot stove, well, simmers, here's our live chat/open thread to help you follow along with all the rumors and updates:
