Harper has elected not to participate in the All-Star Home Run Derby, the Washington Post reports.

If you're a believer in the notion that the Home Run Derby can disrupt a player's swing and cause a second-half slump, or are just worried about anything that might fatigue Harper and make him more susceptible to injury, his decision to sit out the contest counts as very good news.

Harper went 2-for-3 Sunday with a walk, a double, a run scored and his fourth stolen base of the season.

As if he hasn't done enough already this season Harper seems to be getting comfortable running again, as the double was of the hustle variety on a routine hit to left-center that Angel Pagan didn't return to the infield quickly enough. While anyone with fantasy shares in Harper would probably prefer that he stay healthy rather than swipe the occasional extra base, he does have the potential to add double-digit steals in the second half to his already incredible campaign.

Harper is out of the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington reports.

Harper started in right field in the first game of the day after sitting out the last three days due to a leg cramp. He went 1-for-4 with a double in Game 1 and played all nine innings without any complications, so it seems like the Nationals are just exercising precaution by keeping him on the bench for the nightcap. He'll be replaced in right field by Matt den Dekker.

Harper experienced cramping in his leg during Wednesday's extra-innings game, and he was held out of the lineup Thursday and Friday. After X-rays returned positive results, Harper will be back on the field Sunday for Game 1 of a doubleheader.

Make it three straight days on the bench for Harper, who experienced some cramping in his leg during the 11th inning of Wednesday's game. He did receive some encouraging news Friday, though, as manager Matt Williams said the results of Harper's MRI were "pretty good." Clint Robinson will get the start in right field Saturday, while Harper remains day-to-day ahead of Sunday's series finale.
