Bryce Harper emerged as a 19-year-old star for the Washington Nationals in 2012. Since then, Harper has become synonymous with the nation's capitol and was at one point the most untradeable asset in professional baseball.
Just three years removed from one of the greatest seasons in MLB history, Harper has declined mightily in his seventh MLB season. With a .219 batting average and his lowest on-base percentage since 2014, Harper's name has come up in trade rumors.
According to NBC LA reporter Michael Duarte, the Los Angeles Dodgers have inquired about a potential Bryce Harper trade.
Here's more from Duarte.
In terms of being a "buyer" or a "seller" the Nationals are right on the bubble. After a three-game winning streak, the Nats are just six games back of the Philadelphia Phillies in the NL East.
Whether or not the Nats are willing to part with Bryce Harper depends largely on how the next few games go. Two more games against Miami could turn Washington into a seller, or could have the Nats looking toward a playoff run.
