Bryce Harper Denies Being Hurt
With Reports of Injury resurfacing again around Bryce Harper he and the Nats had a meeting. Bryce Harper denied being the source for the report, and he claimed that it couldn’t be from him or his inner circle of family and friends. The trainer also denied being the source, but he has no information to give because Harper isn’t on the injury report.
GM Mike Rizzo said that he talked to Harper and asked if he was ok and Harper said he was fine. However, Harper has had a down year so it wouldn’t be surprising if he was covering up an injury. One person that could be leaking the information is his agent Scott Boras, who has an advantage if everyone thinks Harper is hurt. Harper could get the highest contract in MLB history when he becomes a free agent. So if the media and the league think he was hurt during this year they have an excuse as to why he played poorly which in result would get him more money.
