Bryce Harper

Harper is perhaps one of the select few that will lead baseball’s next generation to a new ear. The 22-year old has already had two appearances in the All-Star Game and it’s safe to say that he’ll be invited to a couple more. Harper is best known for having world-class power, but so far in the early season he’s also shown a great capacity for contact hitting. In 2015, Harper is hitting an even .300.

Now, back to that power. Harper leads the National League with 11 home runs on the season. His 28 RBI puts him in the Top 3 among National League hitters. Last week Harper put on show for all to enjoy. He smacked 6 home runs and 12 RBI in 3 games. Yeah, he’ll be a factor in the series.
