Nationals | Bryce Harper could miss series

Tue, 31 May 2016 16:04:59 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) could miss the entire series with the Philadelphia Phillies as he deals with a sore right knee after being hit by a pitch Monday, May 30. He was diagnosed with a contusion and was wearing a sleeve over his knee Tuesday, May 31, and is still moving around gingerly. Harper doesn't think the injury is serious.

Fantasy Tip: The Nats are just being cautious with one of the best young players in the game. Harper could use a breather, though, as he's hitting just .200 (16-for-80) with 26 strikeouts and four home runs in the month of May. Whenever he returns to the lineup you'll want to get him back into your starting lineups.

Nationals | Bryce Harper out Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 12:58:15 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31, against the Philadelphia Phillies. The team moved OF Jayson Werth from left to right field for Tuesday's game, and OF Clint Robinson will start in left against Phillies SP Aaron Nola.

Fantasy Tip: This injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but the team is exercising caution so it doesn't turn a little problem into something bigger. Sit Harper until he goes back to active duty. As for Robinson, his .200-2-9 line carries little to no fantasy value.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) said he will evaluate his knee Tuesday, May 31, and will play as long as it feels fine.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Harper should only miss a game or two, if any, after taking a fastball off his knee. Monitor his status and start him if he is able to play.

Updating a previous report, Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) is considered day to day after suffering a right knee contusion in the game Monday, May 30, against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Nationals | Bryce Harper exits game early

Mon, 30 May 2016 18:55:37 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) left the game Monday, May 30, against the Philadelphia Phillies after being hit on the right knee by a pitch.

Nationals | Bryce Harper struggling despite homers

Sun, 29 May 2016 04:55:07 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper hit his 13th home run of the season and second in three games in a 9-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday, May 28. Harper is 7-for-43 (.163) since May 13, dropping his batting average 33 points to .245.

Fantasy Tip: Harper's power keeps his bat afloat in fantasy leagues. You just never know when that bat will explode and deliver you precious points in your league matchup. The slump he is in is worrisome, but Harper should break out of it eventually and raise that batting average up to Harper-like levels. Continue to play him in all formats.

Nationals | Bryce Harper slumping

Wed, 25 May 2016 17:16:25 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is hitless in his last 10 at-bats and has seen his batting average drop to a season-low .245 mark. He is batting just .200 over his last 100 at-bats dating back to April 18, and hasn't homered since May 13.

Fantasy Tip: DFS players will probably want to think twice about inserting Harper into their lineups at his current price tag but seasonal owners should continue starting him in the hopes that he will snap out of his funk soon.

Nationals | Bryce Harper given mental break

Wed, 25 May 2016 10:08:07 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper was given a "mental day off" Wednesday, May 25. "I told him to do nothing, just concentrate and watch the game," manager Dusty Baker said. "You can straighten yourself out by watching others and by what they're doing or not doing."

Fantasy Tip: Harper has been struggling with the lack of pitches he has seen to hit. He'll return to being the daily consideration that he has been all year when he likely returns Thursday.

Nationals | Bryce Harper takes a seat

Wed, 25 May 2016 08:37:33 -0700

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is out of the lineup Wednesday, May 25, with 2B Daniel Murphy hitting third. OF Chris Heisey is hitting seventh and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Murphy refuses to cool off as he has a robust .411-5-19 line this month. He's one of the top few players at his position in fantasy. Heisey has some upside against left-hander Steven Matz as he has hit well against lefties in his career. He's a low-end option to consider today.
