She gets in Washington dot com. Bryce harper as a thoroughbred of another kind and right now. He's tearing it up into the label but the nationals chose today to make sure everyone knew mr. harper would not be called up to the big club this year curious timing. Again this is the same team postpone the game three hours before the game because of rain. -- that never really came. When he did it lasted just twenty minutes. Either way I don't think GM Mike Rizzo it's changing his mind. We heard it's spring training for so long and must -- again today but -- -- we feel that his development as farmers to play in the big leagues and when it's there in the moment he's ready and we believe he's ready he'll be in the big leagues. If she's earned her hand in his religion plan to release him just to stand violence. What does that mean things at this level that you think he's still. Is most important for me get this level. -- Well we think character -- You know we we like we adjust and sees me at the plate first of all we we like here the adjustments he's made specifically against left handed pitching. Which were points of emphasis going going and Hagerstown and you know his defense. And in the outfield. And base running all the little things that does that come and play here this is what we wanted to turn him to work on at that level and he's he's. In the process of working I'm used to and Lleyton. And so you know he's he's at the point where he's. He's really really planned well. It's not it's not any one thing this is just and overall from overall evaluation of where he's -- and anytime you during the season and and that kind of thing. I think a lot of it. Stems on his development as a as a on the defensive side of that in the outfield. CS in Washington dot com.
