Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Monday.
It's Harper's first day off of the season, as he had started each of the team's first 18 games. The timing is unfortunate for his fantasy owners given that the day off comes at Coors Field. Adam Eaton will slide over to right field and Michael Taylor will get a start in center. The Nationals also have Jose Lobaton at catcher over Matt Wieters. Apr 24 - 5:12 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, two runs scored, and a walk as the Nationals topped the Mets 4-3 in 11 innings on Friday.

Harper got the Nationals on the board with a two-run blast off Matt Harvey in the first inning. He later scored the go-ahead run in the 11th inning after reaching on a double against Josh Smoker and Trea Turner drew a bases-loaded walk against Jeurys Familia. Harper has been on an absolute tear to begin the year, hitting .407/.521/.864 with seven homers and 20 RBI through 16 games. He’s back in MVP form.
Apr 21 - 11:27 PM

Bryce Harper went 4-for-4 with two home runs, one of which was a grand slam in a 14-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

He smoked a long solo home run in the first inning and topped that with an even longer shot for the grand slam in the second inning. He later added a double, a single and a walk for good measure. All told he drove in five runs and scored three. He is off to an epic start to the season, batting .404/.516/.846 with six home runs, 16 runs scored and 18 RBI.
Apr 20 - 1:11 AM

Bryce Harper doubled twice and drew a walk on Tuesday against the Braves.

Harper tried a delayed steal in the fourth inning that didn't work, which helped to thwart what could have been a rally for the Nats. However, reaching base three times and scoring a run isn't bad. He's hitting .354/.475/.688.
Apr 18 - 11:00 PM

Bryce Harper hit two home runs, including a three-run walkoff blast in the bottom of the ninth inning, as the Nationals topped the Phillies 6-4 on Sunday.

Harper hit a two-run shot off Phillies starter Jerad Eickhoff in the bottom of the third inning and a glorious three-run bomb to dead center off Phillies closer Joaquin Benoit in the bottom of the ninth. The 24-year-old superstar is batting .333/.455/.644 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 12 regular-season games. He's chasing his second National League MVP Award.
Apr 16 - 5:28 PM

Bryce Harper went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Harper and the Nationals could not get anything going against Cardinals starter Mike Leake in this one, but after Leake ceded way to the bullpen for the eighth inning, the offense tried its best to cough to life. After scoring one run in the frame, they had runners on first and third with two outs and Harper at the plate. He proceeded to hit an absolute smash of a line drive which was caught. Harper then slammed his bat on the ground in frustration. There will be better days a-coming for the superstar outfielder.
Apr 12 - 7:41 PM

Bryce Harper finished 4-for-4 with two walks, two runs scored, and three RBI as the Nationals trounced the Cardinals 14-6 on Monday night in Washington.

Harper reached base in each of his six trips to the plate, smacking an RBI single in the bottom of the first and plating two more runs on a single in the Nationals' seven-run eighth inning. He also had two other singles in the game. The 24-year-old superstar is off to a tremendous start in 2017, boasting a .385/.500/.654 batting line, eight RBI, and seven runs scored through 32 plate appearances. If he can stay healthy all year, he's bound to get MVP votes.
Apr 10 - 11:14 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI as the Nationals topped the Phillies 7-6 on Friday afternoon in Philadelphia.

Harper got the Nats' offense started early, tagging Phillies' starter Vincent Velasquez for a two-run shot in the first inning. He also drew a walk and scored a pair of runs in the contest. Harper is off to a tremendous start at the plate, slashing .357/.500/.857 with five RBI in his first four contests.
Apr 7 - 6:47 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a 6-4 win over the Marlins on Wednesday.

He doubled home a run in the fourth and singled home a run in the fifth. He was thrown out attempting to steal a base in the first inning. Harper turned in a historically great season in 2015 before taking a big step backward last year. Still just 24 years old and seemingly in full health he is primed to be one of the best hitters in baseball again this year.
Apr 5 - 10:52 PM

Bryce Harper slugged a solo homer and drew a walk Monday against the Marlins.

Well, of course Harper homered on Opening Day. It's what he does. He now has five Opening Day homers in his career. Harper disappointed after his monster 2015, but there’s no doubting his ability to reemerge as one of the league's most valuable players.
Apr 3 - 4:08 PM

Bryce Harper hit a pair of homers Monday off the Mets' Seth Lugo.

That's eight homers in 52 at-bats for Harper. He had totaled 10 in 245 career spring at-bats going into this year. Harper was hitting third today, and it looks like manager Dusty Baker is considering putting him there at the start of the year. He'll hit behind Daniel Murphy either way; it just remains to be seen whether they're two-three or three-four.
Mar 27 - 4:39 PM

Bryce Harper hit his sixth homer Thursday off the Mets' Zack Wheeler.

Harper has twice as many homers this spring as he's ever hit before. He's also sporting a 3/6 K/BB ratio in 29 at-bats. It all adds up to a 1.395 OPS.
Mar 16 - 3:50 PM

Bryce Harper hit his fourth spring homer Friday off the Cardinals' Mike Leake.

That's a new Grapefruit League high for Harper. He has four homers in 21 at-bats this spring. Previously, he had totaled nine homers in 243 at-bats during spring action, never finishing with more than three in a year.
Mar 10 - 5:12 PM

Bryce Harper launched his third homer Thursday as the Nationals and Marlins played to a 2-2 tie.

Harper's third homer matches his high total for a spring, which was achieved in 2013 and matched in 2015. One imagines he'll add a couple of more before Opening Day finally arrives in... oh my god, it's still 24 days away.
Mar 9 - 4:17 PM

Bryce Harper had a two-run homer and two walks against the Astros on Thursday.

Harper is 4-for-9 with two homers in four games. Oddly enough, he's never hit more than three homers in a spring campaign (he finished with three, two, three and two in his four full camps). That seems likely to change this year.
