Harper continued to destroy JuCo pitching this weekend, going 7-for-14 with four homers, three walks, and two strikeouts. In the month of March, Harper is hitting for a .535/.648/1.233 line in 43 at-bats. What is more impressive is that he has a 6:12 K/BB ratio, and has hit a homer once every 5.38 at-bats.
Before the month of March, Harper had a good stat line, hitting .356/.451/.678 with a homer every 14.75 at-bats. Is this recent success a sign that Harper has mastered JuCo pitching, or is it just a hot streak? As of right now, there is no way you can say that Harper is not the number one player in the draft. If the Nationals pass on him for whatever reason, the Pirates have to take him.
