Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper is 7-for-16 in his career against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran, who he'll face Tuesday, April 28. Harper has two career home runs against Teheran.
Fantasy Tip: Batter versus pitcher statistics like this can off be ignored due to the small sample sizes they typically deal with. The promising part of this one is the two homers Harper ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has against Teheran. Harper's stuck in a 1-for-12 slump and will be a nice GPP option due to the seemingly favorable matchup.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper currently leads the majors in walks heading into the games Friday, April 24, with 15 of them. "I think it's more pitchers not giving me pitches to hit," Harper said. "I'm just trying to be as patient as I can and get my pitch to hit and not give in to what they're doing." Harper has been intentionally walked five times in 16 games. He has done a better job this year of laying off pitches off the plate, too. But he's also struck out 22 times, which is second in the National League.
Fantasy Tip: Harper ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) isn't off to the best start in 2015, but it's still early and he does have four home runs, despite hitting .259 (14-for-54). The improve plate patience will be good for Harper in the long run. He should be a daily consideration for a lineup spot at FantasyScore.

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper came into camp with a slimmed-down physique this year. "I was able to do the things I wanted to do when I was in high school and college," Harper said of his offseason fitness regimen. "Switching things up a little bit, more fast-paced workouts. I'm doing 1,000 reps workout in 45 minutes. Just trying to roll through it as quick as I can, doing the things I need to do to get a little leaner and do things like that, but my strength is still there, my power is still there, so I feel very good."
Fantasy Tip: Harper comes with some injury risk, but once some of the big names come off the board in the first several rounds, he'll look attractive. If he can remain healthy for the majority of the season, Harper could finally have that breakout season everyone was hoping for in 2014.
