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