MLB Rumors: Could Washington Nationals Trade Bryce Harper?

MLB Rumors: Could Washington Nationals Trade Bryce Harper?

Hyped by on July 2, 2014 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

Bryce Harper has been the most highly touted MLB prospect in decades. From leaving school early – high school, that is – so that he could play college baseball and get even closer to his dream of playing in the big leagues, Harper has been labeled as the next big thing. So far, he has been very good. Not great, but very good. Harper is yet to play 140 games in a regular season. He has never hit more than 22 home runs or batted higher than .274 at the end of a season. Harper has never scored 100 runs or driven in more than 60 in any given season. Is he good? Yes. Is he great? Not by a long shot. Not yet, at least. I am not saying that Harper cannot reach his potential – although I am not sure that any player would be able to live up to his hype – but as many negatives relate to Harper as positives as he is in his third season. Again, it has been another one marred by injuries. With all of that, including some recent comments where Harper basically told manager Matt Williams how to do his job and who should play what position, is it conceivable that we could see the Washington Nationals trade Bryce Harper?
