Coco Crisp went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in his return to the lineup Friday night.
Crisp made his first start since April 12 after suffering a hamstring injury and made his presence felt out the gates, connecting for his second home run of the season. When healthy Crisp is a solid source for both power and speed in the outfield slot, but he has an injury history that continues to mount, having already suffered both a wrist and hamstring injury in the early going. With that said fantasy owners will want to check his status prior to every game, considering both injuries have the tendency to resurfacing over the course of a 162 game season. 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.
