Trying to think of something to write about today and nothing really happened over the weekend that peaked my interest. So today I’m just going to write a quick post about Bryce Harper. In case you haven’t heard yet a story came out this weekend that Bryce Harper has been trying to play through a shoulder injury. He didn’t play at all last week, my fantasy team noticed, with a sore neck/shoulder.
After a week of rest Harper came back on Sunday and ripped a double down the left field line in his first at bat. And I know I’m not the only one to notice that he’s looking really good at the plate the last couple games. He also went 3-3 with 2 doubles last night. Based on Harper being the competitor he is he would never admit if he actually was playing through an injury. However it’d make sense because he started off hot, won player of the month in April, then hit a brick wall after playing the Cubs because they walked him 17 times in 1 series. I honestly believe that that series really messed with his head. But eventually pitchers started pitching to him again and would swing and hit it but it would end up on the ground or a popped straight up. It was clear that something was a tiny bit off. Wouldn’t be surprised if he was injured but if the past 2 games are any indication Bryce Harper is going to have an amazing second half.
