Harper had a strong first-half, but has ground to a halt in Double-A, likely killing his chances for POY honors.

Bryce Harper came into the 2011 season with all the attention that could possibly be afforded a No. 1 overall pick, and for a few months it looked like he was going to pull a "Matt Wieters" and surpass all the hype, transcending from uber-prospect to franchise-savior.

His .262 average and two home runs through 29 games for Harrisburg, has pretty much excluded him from making a real case for Minor League Player of the Year honors.
