    Nationals recall Bryce Harper

    Seems too soon in my opinion, but it'll be fun to watch.

    Thoughts?

    It does seem a little soon as he is not tearing up AAA though he has hit better the last couple of weeks. Best of luck to the kid.

    He'll be a yankee quicker this way.

    It is soon, but they need a bat and he has the biggest spark plug potential from their system.

    In Syracuse, he has looked like he was not ready but making progress. He's 6 for his last 18, though.

    Keith Law thinks it's a risky move.

    I think it's too early as well.

    Hitting .403/.467/.623 (that is AVG/OBP/SLG just in case it confused someone since it starts with a .403) in AAA with 11BB and 16K. 4 doubles, 5 triples and a home run so far.

    Good shot he's still with the Nats when they come to Cincinnati in two weeks.

    My first thought... Makes that 5/12 Votto bobblehead night even more enticing...

    He'll be fine. I bet he performs above the short 20-game sample size we saw in AAA Syracuse.

    They would be well served to leave him up for good. The kid can play. Sending him back down is delaying the inevitable. I think he's ready.

    Like he might be the "anti Branden Larson"?

    I need to ask... he is ready b/c he has not performed that great at AAA? I am not sure I am following that logic. He may perform well in the bigs, but if you are a bit overwhelmed at this time there does not usually equate to success at the MLB level. Nor does it mean that success at AAA means you will succeed at the highest level (Larson).

    Unlike a guy like Larson (who struck out a lot and didn't walk much), Harper isn't getting the hits in AAA, but he has 9 walks and 14 strikeouts in 82 PA's. Those are pretty good ratios for anyone, much less a teenager in AAA. He gets the strikezone fairly well. I would be surprised if we saw him come up and struggle because he can't put the bat on the ball. He could have some spots exploited where he makes weak contact though.
