Bryce Harper blasted his 15th home run of the season on Friday as the Nationals dispatched of the Padres.

Harper had been in a bit of a funk at the plate over the past week, so his mammoth two-run shot into the third deck in Washington was a welcomed sight. He finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .340/.451/.685 with 15 long balls and 40 RBI on the season.

Bryce Harper smacked a two-run home run and scored a pair of runs Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

Harper walked and scored in the fifth, singled in the seventh and extended the Nationals' lead with a blast off of Wade LeBlanc in the ninth. It was his first home run off a left-hander this season, although he has 13 hits in 27 at-bats against southpaws.

Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Nationals topped the Phillies on Sunday night.

Harper got the Nationals on the board with an RBI single in the third inning and tacked on a two-run double in the fifth. He continues to produce at an elite level, slashing .384/.500/.752 with 12 homers and 34 RBI. He has yet to steal a base though after swiping 21 bases a season ago.

Bryce Harper hit a walk-off, two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lead his club to a 6-4 win over the Phillies on Saturday.

The game was tied 4-4 when Harper stepped to the plate to face Edubray Ramos with Adam Lind on first base. He drilled the second pitch to straight-away center field to touch off the celebration. Harper signed a $21.65 million contract extension earlier in the day and it started paying dividends immediately. Harper went 1-for-4 with two runs, two RBI and a walk in the ballgame. He is having a video game style season, slashing .368/.493/.726 with 11 home runs, 39 runs scored and 31 RBI in 32 games.
May 13 - 11:46 PM

The Nationals and Bryce Harper agreed to a $21.65 million contract for 2018, avoiding his final year of salary arbitration.

Rather than going to arbitration with their star outfielder over the winter, the Nationals decided to lock up that last season of team control now and can focus on working on a long-term extension. It'll be a nice raise over the $13.63 million that the 24-year-old is taking home in 2017 and the largest one-year deal ever for an arbitration-eligible player.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-3 with a homer and two RBI on Monday night against the Orioles.

Harper hit an RBI single in the top of the sixth inning and a solo home run in the top of the eighth, but the Nats couldn't complete the comeback at Camden Yards. The home run was the 10th this season for Harper. He's up to 29 RBI in 29 games.

Bryce Harper (groin) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

Harper hasn't played since leaving Thursday's game with groin tightness. It still looks like a case of the club just being cautious, as there's been no chatter about a possible disabled list stint.

Bryce Harper (groin) is not in the Nationals' lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

Harper hasn't played since leaving Thursday's game with groin tightness, though there's no indication he'll be placed on the disabled list. Rafael Bautista is filling in for him at right field and batting seventh against Phillies right-hander Vince Velasquez. Harper's .376 average this year is good for third-best in the major leagues behind Justin Turner and teammate Ryan Zimmerman.

Bryce Harper (groin) is not in the Nationals' lineup Friday.

Harper tweaked his groin while diving in the outfield during Thursday's game. The Nats said after he was pulled that it was precautionary, so he should ultimately be fine. However, it's not a surprise that they're giving him at least a day. Chris Heisey is in right field.
May 5 - 3:36 PM

Updating an earlier report, Bryce Harper exited Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with groin tightness.

The injury stems from a diving play in right field. The Nats said Harper's exit was precautionary and are calling him day-to-day. Over the course of a 162-game schedule, these nicks and bruises will happen from time-to-time. Harper has had a monster season so far, batting .376 with nine homers and 27 RBI. Chris Heisey replaced him in right field on Thursday and could start there Friday if the Nats decide to give Harper the night off.
May 4 - 4:57 PM

Bryce Harper was lifted from Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent injury.

May 4 - 3:32 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a homer, two walks and four runs scored Sunday against the Mets.

The homer was off catcher Kevin Plawecki, but it counts in the starts. Harper has now scored 32 runs in 25 games. He led the NL with 118 in 153 games two years ago, and he's blowing away that pace right now.
Apr 30 - 5:22 PM

Bryce Harper hit a three-run homer and walked Thursday against the Rockies.
