"That's what stars do," Nationals manager Dusty Baker said. "He had a good jump. He got a good ball to throw with, and he threw it on the money. He executed perfectly. That's how you draw it up."
As if anyone needed more proof that Harper is playing healthy and uninhibited this season, this was his third outfield assist of the year; he recorded five last season.
Harper's throw was the fastest outfield assist in the Majors this season, and it was tied for the 12th-strongest throw among outfield assists in the Statcast™ Era.
