Bryce Harper Makes Debut In Major Leagues With Nationals


The Washington Nationals will recall Bryce Harper from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday as he makes his debut in the major leagues.

Bryce, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft, is widely guarded as baseball’s top prospect. He will start with the Nationals in Los Angeles, where they are playing the Dodgers, and take the roster spot of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman.

As it turns out, Zimmerman is going on a 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right shoulder.

“Suffice it to say, this isn’t the coming-out party for Bryce that we had in mind,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday on a conference call. “This isn’t the optimal situation developmentally.”
