Bryce Harper Promoted To Double-A Harrisburg, According To Report

Bryce Harper has been dominating the pitching at Single-A Hagerstown all season, and that has finally earned him a promotion. The Washington Nationals' phenom will be called up to Double-A Harrisburg, according to Bill Ladson of MLB.com. He is scheduled to make his debut on Monday night.

Harper has spent the past three months in low-Single A, proving that he was probably too advanced for that level. Harper hit .318 with 14 home runs and 46 RBI in 72 games and 305 plate appearances. He posted an on-base percentage of .423 and a slugging percentage of .577.

The mild surprise is that Harper skipped the Nationals' high- Single A affiliate in Potomac. Evidently, the Nationals saw enough of him mash the ball at Hagerstown to know that he didn't need to play in that league. This is despite the fact that Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo suggested that Harper would "touch every level of the minor-league system."
