Update: Manager Bryan Price said Aroldis Chapman's (head) bullpen session on Monday went "very well."
Price was Chapman's pitching coach before being promoted to manager, so if anyone can provide an adequate assessment of the left-hander's progress, Price would be that guy. Positive reports have been very encouraging to fantasy owners eager to get their closer back, and that should be within a few weeks now.ANALYST: Howard Bender
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.
