|Confirmed: Bryce Harper back Thursday for Nationals |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) As expected, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has returned to the lineup for the Thursday game against St. Louis after missing one game with a quad ailment.

(4/17/14) The quad muscle that prevented Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper from playing Wednesday should not keep him out Thursday against St. Louis, according to the Washington Post.
Harper has been dealing with tightness since Friday, but remained in the lineup. "He's been running a lot," Matt Williams said. "He's been doing a lot of things. Give him a day to calm it down a little bit."
Harper certainly hasn't been negatively affected at the plate. He owns an eight-game hitting streak during which he has 14 hits in 29 at-bats with five RBI. His power numbers have been slow to come around, however. He has just one home run in 50 at-bats this season.

(4/16/14) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup, due to tightness in his left quad. This is an injury he has been fighting through over the last few days, and will likely just get some time off to let it heal. He is day to day moving forward.
|Quadriceps injury doesn't keep Bryce Harper sidelined |

(4/15/14) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper made it into the starting lineup Tuesday at Miami after leaving Monday's game due to tightness in his quadriceps. Harper carries a seven-game hitting streak into Tuesday, batting .520 (13 for 25) with one triple, one home run, three doubles and five RBI in that span.

(4/14/14) Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was removed from Monday's 9-2 win over the Marlins due to quad tightness, masnsports.com reports.
The injury is expected to be minor for Harper, who went 3 for 4 with two doubles and a triple in the win. He has hit .348/.412/.522 with one home run and five RBI in 46 at-bats.
|Fantasy owners were left to wonder about the season that might have been for Bryce Harper had he not collided with the outfield wall at Dodger Stadium in mid-May. Prior to that incident, Harper was off to a blistering start, batting .303 with a .622 slugging percentage, 1.022 OPS, one triple, six doubles, 10 home runs and 21 RBI in 25 games. Unfortunately, the collision led to Harper dealing with knee and hip problems the rest of the season. He would hit just .262 with a .433 slugging percentage, .789 OPS, two triples, 10 home runs, 18 doubles and 37 RBI in his last 83 games. Harper averaged 26.3 Fantasy points through the first four scoring periods last season. He averaged 15.3 Fantasy points over the final 17 scoring periods he was active. Perhaps an offseason of rest will allow Harper, who had offseason knee surgery, to recover from what ailed him for most of the 2013 season and get back to playing at an elite level. Harper's upside keeps him as an early round Fantasy pick, worth a look starting in the second round.
