When: Nationals vs. Dodgers, 9:10 ET
Last but not least, we have the debut of "the Phenom", the "Chosen One" or Bryce Harper.
No matter what you know him as, one thing is for certain: He will be the talk of the sporting world tomorrow.
The 19-year-old, No. 1 prospect was called up on Friday afternoon after National's third basemen, Ryan Zimmerman, was placed on the 15-day DL.
Though Harper is an outfielder, he provides a left-handed bat that the team is in need of. At least, that's what Manager Davey Johnson says. Zimmerman is a righty and played a different position, so logically the move makes no sense, but honestly, who cares? We get a sneak preview of the kid who is supposed to be face of baseball for years to come. If things go right, this preview might just turn into the real thing.
Surprisingly, Harper hasn't exactly been tearing up the Minor Leagues like fellow top prospect Mike Trout. Actually, their numbers aren't even comparable. Since the start of his season, Harper owns a .250 AVG., with only one HR, and three RBI. Though the stat line isn't great, don't let it fool you; he can play.
Besides Harper's debut, there's also a lot of other things that will make this game great. Fans will get to see the other phenom, Stephen Strasburg, pitch in a game that features the top teams in the National League. The winner will claim the best record thus far.
Though there will be other headlines, none will be bigger than the debut of the one and only, Bryce Harper.
