Bryce Harper LF/RF WAS 1 day ago

Harper was 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in the Nationals' win over Philadelphia on Friday night.

The walk was intentional. When you are on fire, hitting .336 with 16 home runs and 39 RBI that is going to happen. One of the most talented young players in the game, Harper is well on his way to the breakout season the team, and fantasy owners have been anxious to enjoy.

Harper went 1-for-4 Tuesday with a solo shot, his 15th home run of the season.

He doesn't appear to be slowing down after winning back-to-back NL Player of the Week honors. Harper also drew his major league-leading 37th walk on Tuesday, and his slash line in May is now an absurd .400/.520/.983.

Harper had a monster day at the plate on Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a triple, a home run, four RBI, three runs scored and a walk against the Padres.

The 22-year-old star has been unreal over his past 11 games, with nine home runs, 22 RBI and 18 runs scored during that time. Amazingly, he has also drawn nine walks in addition to batting 22-for-39 during the stretch and has raised his season OPS to an astronomical 1.205. It seems Harper has finally emerged as the consistent force that the Nationals, and fantasy owners, have long anticipated.

Harper went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk in the 4-1 win over San Diego on Saturday.

That makes for a league-leading 35 walks this season to go along with his NL leading 15 home runs. Harper is in MVP form and he is truly having his imminent breakout in this 2015 season.

Harper remained locked in Friday, going 3-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored, two RBI and his 13th home run of the season.

He now has a ridiculous .367/.492/.918 line in 49 May at-bats, and Harper leads the majors in walks (34), runs (32) and OPS (1.150) while running second in HR and RBI (33). In other words, he may be emerging as the best hitter in the game right before our eyes.

Harper went 0-for-2 Thursday, but drew three walks, scored a run, and stole his second base in as many games.

The Padres wanted nothing to do with Harper on Thursday, and with good reason. Over his last eight games, he's hitting .500 (14-for-28) with seven home runs, 12 runs scored and 16 RBI. The two steals were also his first successful swipes of the year, and if he's adding that element back into his game, Harper may finally become the five-category threat he was projected to be when he got to the majors.

Harper was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning for arguing balls and strikes.

The NL leader in home runs went down looking but didn't like the call, and he let umpire Rob Drake know it. It's less than ideal for Harper to get ejected from a tie game, but manager Matt Williams immediately came to Harper's defense (and got tossed as well). It's hard to imagine Harper will draw any discipline from the league.

Harper went 2-for-3 from the plate Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, driving in two runs, one of which came on a home run.

Harper just missed extending his home run streak to four games on Sunday, instead settling for a double in a 2-for-4 performance.

His numbers on the season continue to rise, and Harper is now hitting an even .300 while leading the NL in home runs with 11 and sitting third in the majors in RBI with 28. If he can just stay healthy, Harper seems headed for a massive campaign.
