Bryce Harper missed out when the original NL roster was announced, again on the Final Vote and again as the first two NL All-Stars went down, but he will go to Kansas City after all. He was chosen as the injured Giancarlo Stanton‘s replacement on the NL roster Saturday, making him the youngest position player ever to go to an All-Star Game.
The 19-year-old Harper is batting .283/.357/.478 with eight homers and 25 RBI in 244 at-bats since being called up by the Nationals. He spoke earlier this week about maybe preferring to rest over the All-Star break, but it should be a more interesting party with him around.
