SAN DIEGO — Bryce Harper's agent is having talks with the Washington Nationals ahead of a possible grievance hearing to decide whether the outfielder should be eligible for salary arbitration.

Harper has 2 years, 159 days of major league service, 26 above the cutoff for arbitration eligibility this offseason. Agent Scott Boras contends because the All-Star has sufficient service time, he should be able to void the 2015 terms in the final season of his $9.9 million, five-year contract. Harper is scheduled to have a $1 million salary and the chance to earn four $125,000 bonuses for 30, 60, 90 and 120 days on the active 25-man roster.

The Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance. If the case doesn't settle, it would be heard by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz.

Boras says "I'm in discussions with the Nationals on that subject."
