Will Nationals’ slugger Bryce Harper bounce back in 2017?

Before the Washington Nationals acquired Adam Eaton to play center, manager Dusty Baker was asked if he considered moving Bryce Harper to center field if the Nationals acquired a corner outfielder?

“I don't know. We haven't discussed it, really,” Baker told reporters when he spoke at the Winter Meetings.

“Bryce can play it. At this point I would rather him not, just speaking honestly. That's a lot of wear and tear.”
