Bryce Harper is batting third in the Nationals' order Thursday night against the Diamondbacks.
It's a bold and aggressive (but well-earned) promotion for the 19-year-old phenom, who batted seventh on Wednesday. Harper has a .385/.400/.615 slash line through the first four games of his MLB career and is flashing elite-level defensive ability. There was some thought when he was originally called up that it might not be more than a week-long stay, but the eye-blacked, mohawked kid is here for good. It should be a fun era.
