Bryce Harper turned in the best game of his young career against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, going 3-for-4 with two runs scored and an RBI, and keying a rally that led to the Nationals’ eventual walk-off win.
It’s been an extremely limited sample size, but Harper sure looks like he belongs in the major leagues. He’s hitting .385 through his first 13 at-bats and has already tallied three doubles. Trailing by a run in the ninth inning, Harper doubled off of J.J. Putz, then rode home on the eventual walk-off blast from Ian Desmond. The 19-year-old phenom needs to be owned and started in every fantasy format
