Bryce Harper has a 1.039 OPS in the Arizona Fall League
As a member of the Scottsdale Scorpions’ “taxi squad” Bryce Harper has been limited to playing twice per week in the Arizona Fall League, but the No. 1 overall pick has been extremely impressive when in the lineup, batting .343 with six extra-base hits and a 1.039 OPS in nine games.
Not bad for the second-youngest player in Arizona Fall League history.
Bill Ladson of MLB.com notes that Harper is expected to begin next season--and make his official professional debut--at low Single-A Hagerstown of the South Atlantic League, where he’ll still be younger than the average player by two years.
