Just Stephen Strasburg icing is wrist in the bottom of the fourth after getting drilled in the hand/wrist by a Prince Fielder liner. No big deal.

Player Profile #20: Bryce Harper | OF | WAS

It was just a matter of time before Bryce Harper became an elite fantasy player and starred in an Under Armour commercial. Am I shocked that all of this has happened before he’s even turned 21?
