Description: Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper smashed his second homer of the season.
Insight: He did so in the first inning off Sean O'Sullivan. It was Harper's lone hit in five at-bats.
 
4/6/2015 7:05:00 PM
Description: Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the, 3-1, loss to the Mets on Monday.
Insight: This was actually Harper's third home run on Opening Day in his career, so owners can't be too excited by this early success. Harper has been consistently mediocre in his three-year career, hitting between .270 and .274 each season with no more than 22 home runs, 59 RBI and 18 stolen bases. Let's see him string a few great games together before fantasy owners claim him a stud.
 
4/6/2015 10:28:00 AM
Description: Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is just 1-of-10 with four strikeouts against Mets starter Bartolo Colon.
Insight: Harper's numbers have been going in the wrong direction. He's played fewer games each season, hit fewer homers, knocked in fewer runs and stole less bases. Of course, he's still just 22-years-old, but the wily veteran seems to have his number and he should not be started Monday.
 
2/25/2015 3:30:00 PM
Description: Nationals manager Matt Williams told CSN Washington that Harper will likely hit somewhere in the middle of the lineup.
Insight: Harper mostly hit sixth last season despite his complaints. Harpes is injury prone, having missed 106 games over the last two seasons, but Williams clearly expects Harper to take his game to another level. Fantasy owners would love that.
 
10/8/2014 9:42:00 AM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper does all he can in Game 4 of NLDS.
Insight: He hit a titanic home run into McCovey Cove that tied the game at 2-2, in the seventh inning. However, Washington was unable to take the lead, and lost 3-2. Harper finished the night going 2-for-3 with two RBI and a walk. If he is able to stay healthy in 2015, Harper should be an impactful fantasy player.
 
10/6/2014 7:59:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper hit his second home run of this year's playoffs to give Washington some added insurance in a 4-1 victory over San Francisco on Monday.
Insight: Harper's bomb to right field made the game, 4-0, in the top of the ninth. The Giants scored in the bottom of the inning, but Washington won to force a Game 4. San Francisco leads the series, 2-1, with the next game on Tuesday.
 
10/3/2014 7:14:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper hits first homer of postseason on Friday.
Insight: It was a bomb off Giants' reliever Hunter Strickland, which got the Nationals on the board for the first time in the game. Asdrubal Cabrera hit a home run two batters later, but that was all Washington was able to muster. Harper finished the game going 2-for-4.
 
9/25/2014 6:28:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper will get the second game of Thursday's doubleheader off.
Insight: Ian Desmond, Ryan Zimmerman, and Adam LaRoche are all sitting as well, after playing this afternoon. Nate Schierholtz will start in left, Danny Espinosa gets the call at shortstop, and Tyler Moore will be at first base.
 
9/24/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is a career .375 hitter with a pair of home runs and a 1.194 OPS versus Mets starter Dillon Gee.
Insight: Harper is batting .267 this season with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 96 games. Remember when there was a debate as to who was better - Harper or Mike Trout? He's still just 21-years-old, but we need to see more.
 
9/20/2014 3:42:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game with Miami.
Insight: Just activated Ryan Zimmerman will get the start in left field. Harper is batting .271 this season with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 93 games. He needs to get healthy, stay healthy, and produce up to his talent level.
 
9/17/2014 3:52:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is one of many Nationals not in the starting lineup after they clinched the East Division Tuesday night.
Insight: The outfielder is batting .269 this season with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 91 games. He needs to get healthy, stay healthy, and produce up to his talent level.
 
9/16/2014 4:02:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is back in Tuesday's lineup.
Insight: Harper was pinch hit for in the fourth inning Monday and it turns out he was weak from the flu.The outfielder is batting .270 this season with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 89 games. He needs to get healthy, stay healthy, and produce up to his talent level.
 
9/15/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper was pinch hit for in the fourth inning by Nate Schierholtz.
Insight: Not sure if this is injury, illness or other. The outfielder is batting .270 this season with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 89 games. He needs to get healthy, stay healthy, and produce up to his talent level.
 
9/10/2014 9:36:00 AM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is a career .6-for-11 (.545) against Braves starter Aaron Harang,
Insight: So much talent, so little production. The left fielder still isn't living up to expectations hitting .267 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI in 300 at-bats. Remember a couple of years ago when people were asking which player was better ... Mike Trout or Harper? Seems funny now.
 
8/31/2014 9:51:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper slugged two home runs, going 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs against the Mariners on Sunday.
Insight: What might have been the greatest sign from Harper was in the ninth inning after already hitting two home runs, he did not try to do too much and hit a single up the middle. Harper has gone 3-for-4 in two of his last three games with three home runs and three RBI. The left fielder still isn't quite living up to expectations though as he is hitting .268 with 10 home runs and 28 RBI in 269 at-bats.
 
8/26/2014 4:33:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper will get Tuesday off as the Nationals hope to catch lightning in a bottle with Scott Hairston.

8/22/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is 3-for-14 with an RBI in his career against Giants starter Tim Hudson.
Insight: Harper went 2-for-4 on Thursday and has gone four for his last 11 (.364), but overall has been disappointing this season. He is hitting .266 with six home runs and 23 RBI this year.
 
8/14/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is starting to heat up at the right time, hitting his second home run in three games.
Insight: Harper was far too talented to continue to struggle like he has all season. He went 4-for-11 in the three game series with the Mets, including the two long balls and five RBI. With Ryan Zimmerman out and Jayson Werth hurting it couldn't come at a better time for the Nats.
 
8/12/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Tuesday against the Mets.
Insight: Harper is far too talented to continue to struggle like he has all season. He's gone 7-for-24 (.292) with two homers over his last six games.
