Bryce Harper crushed a 449-foot home run and finished 1-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored on Wednesday.
The majestic home run was a thing of beauty. It reached the upper deck in right field. Harper's .249/.391/.479 slash line pales in comparison to last year's .330/.460/.649 monster season. Much of the difference is due to his .245 BABIP this year. If that normalizes close to his .319 career BABIP he could carry his fantasy owners to the promised land in September. Jul 20 - 11:05 PM

Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with two walks and two stolen bases in the Nationals' win over the Mets on Saturday.

Harper has turned himself into a base-stealer this year. His steal totals from the last three years were two, two and six yet he already has 13 this year. He stole 18 back in his 2012 rookie season but is on pace to blow way past that this year. His bat has not been as otherworldly potent as last year, but the added steals are helping to make up for a good chunk of that lost fantasy value.

Bryce Harper went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Brewers.

Harper connected for a three-run homer off embattled Brewers starter Matt Garza in the first inning. The dinger was his 18th of the season and pushed his RBI total to 51. In addition to those counting stats, the slugger owns a .258/.400/.498 triple-slash over 275 at-bats. That line is quite a ways off from the .330/.460/.649 mark he posted in 2015 on his way to winning the NL MVP.

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Thursday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Ben Revere is also getting a breather, as the Nats are going with Michael Taylor in center field and Chris Heisey in right.

Bryce Harper doubled and ripped a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

Harper lined a Jerry Blevins offering into the right-field bullpen with one out in the fifth inning. It was his 16th longball of the season but just his third in June. The reigning National League MVP is sporting a disappointing .258 average but has made up for it and then some with a .403 on-base percentage.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Harper connected for a solo homer off Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir in the first inning. The dinger was his 15th of the season. Those 15 bombs, plus his 43 RBI, are nice enough, but after a scalding-hot start to the 2016 campaign, Harper has cooled off to a relatively modest .258/.403/.498. For reference's sake, when he won the NL MVP in 2015, that came on the strength of a .330/.460/.649 triple-slash. Harper owners shouldn't panic, but disappointment is a reasonable emotion to feel given expectations. Still plenty of time for the young superstar to right the mostly-upright ship.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Harper greeted Padres starter Erik Johnson with a two-run homer in the third inning. Wilson Ramos would follow with a solo shot of his own to give the Nationals back-to-back jacks. He went on to add an RBI single in the ninth to finish with three RBI. After slugging a stellar .714 in April, Harper has run into something of a power drought over the last two months. He slugged just .363 in May and has struggled to an even greater degree in June, entering Thursday's action with a .318 slugging-percentage over 44 at-bats. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .254/.409/.502 with 14 homers and 41 RBI. Nice numbers by the standards of mere mortals, but something of a comedown after the reigning NL MVP's stellar start to the 2016 campaign.

Bryce Harper is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the superstar. The Nationals are also resting Ben Revere, as Michael Taylor is in center field and Chris Heisey is in right.

Harper was plunked on the right knee on Monday and did not play against the Phillies on Tuesday. He is out of Wednesday's lineup as well, but looks like he might have avoided a significant injury. The Nationals have a scheduled off day on Thursday that will allow Harper additional rest.
Jun 1 - 5:28 PM

Bryce Harper (knee) is out of the Nationals' starting lineup again on Wednesday night.

Harper also sat out Tuesday after taking a pitch off his knee on Monday. He remains day-to-day with a bruise. Jayson Werth is in right field and Chris Heisey is in left field Wednesday versus the Phillies.
Jun 1 - 3:12 PM

Bryce Harper is day-to-day with a right knee contusion.

Harper was forced to exit Monday's game against the Phillies after he was hit in the right knee by a pitch from Jeremy Hellickson. It doesn't sound like a major concern, but the Nationals will see how he feels on Tuesday.
May 30 - 10:20 PM

Bryce Harper exited Monday's game against the Phillies after being hit in the right knee by a pitch.

Harper was hit in the knee by Jeremy Hellickson in the top of the seventh inning and remained in the game initially, but Chris Heisey replaced him in right field in the bottom of the frame. The Nationals should pass along an update at some point on Monday evening.
