After an impressive first few days in the Major Leagues while the team was in Los Angeles, Bryce Harper returns to Washington to make his home debut on Tuesday.

After a day off on Monday, the Washington nationals will start a home series against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm ET and the game can be found on MASN2.

The big story tonight will be Bryce Harper's home debut with the Washington Nationals. I think we all remember what it was like when Stephen Strasburg made his home debut for the Nationals, and while it is unfair to expect Harper to have even half as good of a performance at just 19, he showed over the weekend that he is not overwhelmed by the moment. This will be the first time that Nationals fans will be able to see the 19-year-old phenom in their home uniforms, and it should be a pretty exciting night at Nationals Park.

We'll have plenty more on this series throughout the week on SB Nation D.C., so keep it locked to this StoryStream for all the latest news and updates.
