David Ortiz is not in the Red Sox lineup on Wednesday.
It would be incredibly surprising if this was anything outside of an illness or a regular day off for Big Papi. There's been no word as far as the Sox trading him and there haven't been any recent injury reports. Mike Napoli will serve as the DH on Wednesday.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.
