Williams: Bryce Harper Now Taking Batting Practing in Cage vs. On Field

CBS DC

WASHINGTON — On the morning of May 6, Bryce Harper woke up with 23 hits, 5 home runs, 15 RBI, 26 walks and 36 strikeouts, and with a .245 batting average.

Two weeks and 12 very locked-in games later, Harper has twice as many hits (46) and three times as many home runs (15) to go along with 38 RBI, 37 walks and a .336 average.

The difference?

Harper, in his last 54 plate appearances, has successfully gotten on base 34 times, or in 63 percent of his attempts. He’s also had 23 hits, 10 homers, 23 RBI and 11 walks, for a remarkable .535/.630/1.349 slash line during that stretch.

Nationals television color commentator F.P Santangelo made mention during Tuesday night’s Nationals-Yankees game broadcast that Harper, since the beginning of his hot streak, has been taking batting practice indoors, in a cage, as opposed to on the field prior to games.
