Bryce Harper –

The Washington Nationals landed Bryce Harper with the first pick of the draft.  Bryce Harper will be playing the outfield for the Nationals and that should help his numbers.  According to a Yahoo! Sports article, a key part of the negotiations with the Nationals was that Bryce would play the outfield and not catcher.  If Bryce was to play catcher it would slow his development and delay his entry into the big leagues.  Bryce Harper is another first round selection that is highly touted along with Strasburg who is about to have his major league debut.
