Bryce Harper went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays.
The Nationals' offense proved essentially nonexistent in this one, as the team finished with just three total hits and proved incapable of scraping together a run in what finished as a 2-0 defeat. For his part, Harper's been scuffling since long before Saturday's snoozer of a showing. The All-Star outfielder's counting stats -- 19 home runs and 43 RBI -- are just fine, but looking beyond those marks, he's slashing a dismal .221/.361/.489 in 67 games. Fantasy owners are in a rotten spot, here, but that counting production does help ease the pain by degrees. Jun 16 - 6:53 PM

Bryce Harper popped a solo home run to key a win over the Orioles on Wednesday.

His third-inning shot off starter David Hess ended up being the decisive blow of the low-scoring ballgame. Harper's .238 batting average has been damaged by a terribly-unlucky .213 BABIP and is bound to come roaring back at some point when the batted-ball gods are pleased. He is doing everything else very well: he has a .382 on-base percentage with 18 home runs, 40 RBI and 37 runs scored through 54 games.

Bryce Harper socked his NL-leading 16th homer Sunday in the Nationals’ win over Miami.

He took left-hander Jarlin Garcia deep for a solo blast in the sixth inning but was hitless in his other three trips to the plate. Harper boasts impressive power numbers (16 long balls, 38 RBI) but he’s been striking out a ton (11 punch-outs in his last four games) and his batting average has now dipped into the low .230s. That’s well below his career mark of .282.
May 27 - 5:56 PM

Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a two-run double in Friday’s 9-5 win over the Marlins.

Trea Turner puts the Nationals in front with an infield single in the seventh and Harper followed with some valuable insurance runs with his opposite-field double. He’s now notched three multi-hit games in his last four, boosting his batting average to .237. Of course, batting average paints an incomplete picture of what Harper is doing. He leads the NL in homers (15) and walks (43) and ranks second in RBI (36).

Bryce Harper launched his National League-leading 15th home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Ozzie Albies briefly tied Harper for the NL lead in dingers with his 14th earlier in the night, but Harper has the solo lead again.
May 22 - 10:33 PM

Bryce Harper collected his 14th homer and his fifth double Monday against the Padres.

Harper leads the NL with 14 homers and 43 walks. He also has 33 RBI, so he's on a good early pace to perhaps reach the century mark for the first time. It's something that would have happened last year had he remained healthy (87 RBI in 111 games).
May 21 - 10:20 PM

Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 and drove in a run during Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

He plated Wilmer Difo with a single in the third inning. It was the only highlight of the game for the Nationals although they will get another chance in game two of the double-header tonight. Harper has struggled to hit for average this year but has done everything else well. He has a .233 batting average with 13 homers, 31 RBI and 30 runs scored. His average will jump up as soon as his .198 BABIP bounces back to reasonable levels.
May 19 - 5:29 PM
