Date:

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Wednesday.

As is customary the day after clinching a division title, the Nats are rolling out a "B" squad Wednesday, as not a single everyday player is in the lineup. With the club also starting Blake Treinen instead of Gio Gonzalez, it should be pickins for Alex Wood.

Bryce Harper (flu) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Harper left Monday's game with lightheadedness as a result of the flu, but it's not a big deal. He'll bat sixth Tuesday against Aaron Harang as the Nationals attempt to punch their ticket to the postseason.

Bryce Harper is dealing with the flu.

The flu bug is being passed around the Nationals' clubhouse and apparently caught Harper. It's why he was lightheaded, which forced him from Monday's game. Consider him day-to-day.
Sep 15 - 11:11 PM

Bryce Harper left Monday's game versus the Braves due to lightheadedness.

It's not clear at this point what brought about the lightheadedness, but the Nationals should provide more on Harper's status after the game. He struck out in his lone at-bat before exiting.
Sep 15 - 8:19 PM

Bryce Harper left Monday's game against the Braves with an apparent injury.

Harper didn't suffer an obvious injury at any point, but Nate Schierholtz pinch-hit for him in the fourth inning. The Nationals will update the outfielder's status shortly.
Sep 15 - 8:05 PM

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a breather versus southpaw Cole Hamels. Scott Hairston, who is batting .391/.440/.826 with five homers over 50 plate appearances in his career against Hamels, is in left field in Harper's place. Wilson Ramos is also sitting out, as Jose Lobaton is catching Gio Gonzalez.
Sep 7 - 11:36 AM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Harper had three of the Nationals' six hits, with both his homers coming off Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma. Harper had a rough July after returning from a thumb injury, but the outfielder hit .279 with seven homers and 15 RBI in August. He should carry that strong production over into the season's final month.
Aug 31 - 8:22 PM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a solo home run as the Nationals earned a victory against the Mariners on Friday.

Harper's eighth inning solo home run off of Joe Beimel was one of six the Nationals slugged on the evening, and the eighth of the outfielder's season. He has, at times, appeared locked in lately, but he entered the night hitless in his previous nine plate appearances. He's slashing .263/.338/.401 with 26 RBI.
Aug 30 - 1:22 AM

Bryce Harper is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

He's presumably getting a day off. Scott Hairston will make the start in left field against southpaw Cole Hamels.
Aug 26 - 3:26 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the Nationals' 14-6 beatdown of the Giants on Sunday.

The Nationals banged out 18 hits against the Giants, with Harper contributing a double and that two-run homer. He's now got seven home runs on the season, with six of those coming since the start of July. Harper's bat has started to come alive in recent days, as a good stretch has his line up to .265/.343/.398.
Aug 24 - 6:49 PM

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a single in Friday's loss to the Giants.

A single is better than nothing? Harper's been an enigma at the plate this season. While August's .278/.354/.403 slash line is nothing spectacular, it marks the best month that Harper has put in since April. Despite the decent batting average this month, it's hard to have faith that Harper will give fantasy owners a hot playoff run. On the season he has six home runs and just twenty-three RBI.
Aug 23 - 12:19 AM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a run scored as the Nationals defeated the D'Backs on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old had slipped back into a rut at the plate, entering the night with only two hits in his previous four games. Harper singled in the ninth inning, helping set up the Nationals to eventually win on Anthony Rendon's walk off single. Harper is slashing .262/.345/.386 with six home runs and 23 RBI in what has been a disappointing season.
Aug 20 - 10:27 PM

Bryce Harper was 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Friday's win over the Pirates.

Maybe, just maybe, Harper is beginning to come out of his funk. While the 21-year-old outfielder is still striking out a lot, he's hitting .313 (10-for-32) with three home runs and nine RBI over his last eight games.
Aug 15 - 11:32 PM

Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run as the Nationals won by a 4-1 score over the Mets on Thursday.

Perhaps motivated by recent detractors, Harper has hit another gear at the plate. Thursday's blast, which came in the fourth inning against Dillon Gee, is his second in his last three games. He now has six home runs, 21 RBI, and a .255/.335/.392 slash line on the season.
