Bryce Harper blasted his 16th home run of the season on Friday, powering the Nationals to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Phillies.

Harper victimized Sean O'Sullivan for the solo blast in the second inning, the third time that he's taken the young right-hander deep this season. He is in a class of his own at the plate right now, slashing a ridiculous .336/.475/.750 to go along with his 16 bombs and 39 RBI. While it's only May, he's the clear early favorite for National League MVP honors it what is shaping up to be a breakout season for the 22-year-old.

Bryce Harper was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Yankees for arguing balls and strikes.

This one wasn't even a called third strike, as Harper was tossed by home plate umpire Marvin Hudson on a first-pitch strike. The ejection was Harper's second in the past week, as he was tossed from last Wednesday's game for arguing as well. He's super talented, but his attitude can obviously still get him in trouble at times.

Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-inning win against the Yankees.

Harper wasted no time getting home run number 15, clubbing a Nathan Eovaldi offering to right-center in the first inning. The 22-year-old has 10 home runs and 23 RBI since May 6. Along with 15 round-trippers overall on the season, he's batting an unfathomably good .336/.474/.737 with 38 RBI.
May 19 - 11:01 PM

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a homer and a walk against the Padres on Friday.

Harper now has 13 homers and 33 RBI in 37 games this season. Last year, he finished with 13 homers and 32 RBI in 100 games. He's also just four shy of last year's total of 38 walks. One could almost consider this a step forward.

Bryce Harper was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks for arguing balls and strikes.

Harper didn't like a check-swing strike to end an at-bat in the seventh inning and he made his displeasure known. Harper was 1-for-3 with a stolen base in the game before being tossed. The ejection was the fourth of his career and first since July 13, 2013. He was replaced by Michael Taylor in right field.
May 13 - 6:15 PM

Bryce Harper hit his NL-leading 12th homer of the season, but the Nationals were easily defeated by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Harper ripped a two-run home run off of Rubby De La Rosa in the sixth inning, but it only reduced the Nationals' deficit to 14-4. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a double along with the homer. The 22-year-old has been on a power surge in the month of May, now with seven blasts -- all of them coming in his last six games. He's knocked in a major league-best 31 runs and walked 29 times, also best in the big leagues.
May 13 - 12:46 AM

Bryce Harper slugged a walkoff two-run blast in the Nationals' 8-6 win over the Braves on Saturday.

What a week it's been for Bryce, who homered three times on Thursday afternoon, twice on Friday night, and then played the hero on Saturday evening in the nation's capital. He has racked up six home runs, 12 RBI, and seven runs scored over his last three games. He has a 1.084 OPS, 11 home runs, and 27 RBI in 31 total games this season. This looks to be the year that Harper puts it all together.
May 9 - 7:44 PM

Bryce Harper hit two home runs and finished with five RBI in Friday's 9-2 win over the Braves.

Do you hear that rumble? Are you hunkering behind a barricade right now? That sound is the sound of Bryce Harper unleashing torrents of fire. His two-homer, five-RBI game on Friday wasn't even his best game this week, as just two days ago he hit three home runs in a contest with the Marlins. Yikes. Against the Braves, Harper hit a two-run bomb off of Eric Stults in the sixth inning, then followed it up with a three-run shot off William Perez in the eighth. In his last two games, Harper is 6-for-8 with five home runs, 10 RBI and five runs scored. That's a decent month for most players. The 22-year-old Harper's now hitting .284/.426/.627 with 10 home runs, 25 RBI and 23 runs scored. Best of luck to any pitcher who happens to play in the NL East.
May 8 - 10:59 PM

Bryce Harper launched three home runs and drove in five in Wednesday's victory over the Marlins.

All three dingers came off of Tom Koehler, as he went opposite-field in the second before then hitting monster shots into the right-field upper deck in the third and fifth. Harper came up in the seventh with a chance for a fourth home run but had to settle for an RBI groundout. The 22-year-old now has eight home runs and 20 RBI on the season to go along with a .265/.416/.561 batting line.
May 6 - 3:57 PM

Bryce Harper was held hitless with two strikeouts in four at-bats as the Nationals suffered a loss to the Marlins on Tuesday.

After finishing the month of April strong, Harper has slumped in five May games, recording just one hit (a single) in 21 plate appearances. Though he has been drawing plenty of walks all season, his triple-slash line is otherwise disappointing at .245/.405/.457.
May 5 - 10:57 PM

Bryce Harper doubled twice and drove in three runs Thursday versus the Mets.

Harper also walked for the 22nd time in 23 games. Last year, he walked a total of 38 times in 100 games. His strikeout rate is higher than usual, too, but there's no complaining about the .440 OBP, especially when it comes with 15 RBI in 76 at-bats.
Apr 30 - 10:35 PM

Bryce Harper supplied both of Washington's runs in a 3-2 loss to the Marlins on Friday.

Harper hit a sacrifice fly off Mat Latos in the first inning and an RBI single off Latos in the sixth. He finished the game 2-for-2, plus a walk. Harper's hitting .286/.438/.518 to start the season. He's also smacked four home runs, driven in eight and scored 11. It's been a great open to the 2015 campaign for the 22-year-old and if he stays healthy, we could be seeing career-high numbers by the end of the year.
Apr 24 - 10:19 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk against the Phillies on Saturday.

It was a long blast to straight-away center field which traveled 461 feet. Harper has now gone deep in back-to-back games and is batting .279/.404/.581 with four home runs and seven RBI on the year. If he can stay healthy, look out.
Apr 18 - 4:43 PM

Bryce Harper clubbed a three-run homer in a win over the Phillies on Friday.

Harper also walked twice and scored two runs. The 22-year-old now has three homers on the year, the last two of which have come against Sean O'Sullivan. Harper has been striking out a lot in the early going, but he's capable of a monster breakout if he can stay healthy.
