Nationals | Bryce Harper in contention for major league job

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper will compete for a big-league job in spring training, according to manager Davey Johnson. It is a departure from previous thinking which had Harper getting much more seasoning in the minors. "I think the main thing is, could he handle it mentally? I think, in his mind, he's already figuring he'll be starting on the club. He's done everything in his whole life to compete at a higher level and compete with the best," Johnson said.
