Harper remains the biggest prize on the free agent market and is still waiting to sign a contract despite teams already reporting to spring training. He is expected to command more than $300 million on a long-term contract.
Roberts was at the meeting with Dodgers chairman Mark Walter, team president Stan Kasten and Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman.
"It was good," Roberts said. "Just kind of trying to get to know each other and I think in the spirit of us as the Dodgers, vetting a certain process makes sense. And for those guys to do their due diligence as well."
Roberts declined to elaborate on what Harper said at the meeting. Harper met with the Phillies before meeting with the Dodgers. The Dodgers skipper said he has a relationship with Harper, spending time with him at the All-Star Game. He said Harper is a "heck of a player," as well as a "great family man."
The Dodgers face the Kansas City Royals in spring training action at 3:05 p.m. Tuesday at Surprise Stadium in Surprise, Ariz.
