Panthers DE Greg Hardy signed his franchise tag, guaranteeing him $13 million as negotiations continue.
Although players never want to be franchise tagged, this one really pays off for Hardy, who will now be bringing home some serious coin. Expect a long-term deal to be finalized after the 2014 season if the Panthers are serious about building their defense around him in the long term. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
