Harper went 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

His first-inning blast, Harper's 18th homer of the year, staked the Nats to an early lead which Tanner Roark quickly squandered. The 24-year-old superstar is working on a 12-game hitting streak during which he has a .320/.404/.560 slash line with three homers, eight RBI and eight runs.

Harper went 3-for-5 with a double, a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

He extended a modest hitting streak to nine games with the performance, and Harper's now batting .342 (13-for-38) over that stretch with two homers, six RBI and seven runs. The 24-year-old barreled the ball all night Friday, and seems poised to go on another massive run similar to his dominant April when he posted a 1.281 OPS.

Harper went 1-for-4 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Harper now sports an eight-game hitting streak, but he has just a single multi-hit game during the stretch. Still, the star is up to a .314/.422/.614 slash line with 17 homers, 50 RBI and 53 runs. He's a set-and-forget fantasy option, and after a disappointing 2016 campaign, it's encouraging to see Harper back among the league's elite contributors.

Harper went 1-for-4 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Monday's loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

It was his first homer since May 26 and 16th of the season. Harper cooled down somewhat in the second half of May and hasn't yet fully rebounded, but his .273/.390/.455 slash line so far in June would still be impressive for almost any other player. Expect the 24-year-old to go on another home run binge at any time.

Harper is batting second in the lineup for Saturday's affair versus the Rangers, Dan Kolko of MASN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead of his regular placement in the three-hole, Harper will be playing in right and batting second, behind Trea Turner and ahead of Daniel Murphy on Saturday. Although this is a minor adjustment, Harper could stay in this position depending on its success, especially with Jayson Werth (toe) out at least another week.

Harper was 3-for-4 with one RBI, a walk and one strikeout Thursday against the Orioles during the Nationals' 6-1 win.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday was the epitome of what Harper is capable of as a superstar in this league. However, Harper was 2-for-13 following his suspension for charging the mound last week before Thursday. Consider it a good sign he seems acclimated back to the daily swing of things.

Harper went 0-for-2 with three walks, two runs scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 11-10 win over the A's.

EDGE Analysis

He didn't put the ball in play in his first game back from a suspension, as Harper struck out in his other two plate appearances, but he still made an impact. The 24-year-old phenom will take a .324/.441/.648 slash line into a three-game road series against the Dodgers beginning Monday.

Harper (suspension) is batting third and playing right field during Sunday's game against the Athletics, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper served his three-game suspension following his bout with Hunter Strickland and is set to rejoin the heart of the Nationals' potent lineup. The superstar right fielder should pick up where he left off as he looks to build on his ridiculous 179 wRC+.

Harper had his suspension reduced to three games and will begin serving it Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper appealed his suspension immediately after it was handed out, and he managed to shave one day off of the original sentence. With the superstar beginning to serve the suspension Wednesday, the earliest he can return to the lineup would be Sunday in Oakland. In the meantime, Brian Goodwin seems to be in line for an uptick in playing time.

Harper has been suspended four games for his role in Monday's brawl, but he will appeal, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Until he hears back from the commissioner's office regarding the appeal, Harper will be allowed to continue playing for Washington as normal. He will presumably be in his usual spots Tuesday to take on Jeff Samardzija, as Harper was said to be unharmed coming out of Monday's game. Hunter Strickland, who hit Harper on the hip with a fastball, received a six-game ban.
