Latest Bryce Harper Items
With the Nationals below .500 after 75 games, revisiting my preseason projections seemed like a good idea. Well, that's if your idea of a good idea is one where you get proven wrong repeatedly.
Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is not convinced he can begin a rehab assignment as quickly as his manager believes.
There is neither time nor space to get into much detail about all that's gone wrong. But let's disavow ourselves of the notion that the offseason trade of Morse belongs on the list of things to blame for a disappointing 2013 season.
The Skins and Nats plan on RG3 and Harper being key components for an awfully long time, something the local fan base wouldn't mind. There's no solid reason to expect they won't become fixtures. Except for those knees.
The Nationals were mum Monday on the results of Harper's second opinion from Dr. James Andrews. And while the outfielder is eligible to return to the active roster as early as Tuesday, when he actually will remains unclear.
The Dodgers rookie's first week in the majors was a memorable one, with 13 hits in 28 at-bats, four home runs and 10 RBI in his first seven games since coming up from the minor leagues.
The swelling in Bryce Harper's left knee isn't getting any better, so the Washington outfielder will see a specialist next week and won't be coming off the disabled list when he is eligible.
This time last year, the Nationals were 34-23, hardly having looked back after a 14-4 start to the season and on their way to a major league-best 98 wins. This year, despite the predictions and the expectations, the Nationals have not performed up to the standard they set in 2012.
Bryce Harper hopes to begin running and hitting next week and come off the disabled list the first day he is eligible.
