Rizzo hints Harper could stick around for while
WASHINGTON -- On Friday, Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said there wasn't a guarantee that outfielder Bryce Harper was going to stay in the Major Leagues once Ryan Zimmerman comes off the disabled list.

But on Tuesday, Rizzo hinted that Harper could stay if he performs on the field.

"If I'm satisfied with how he is developing, on how he is performing and how he is interacting -- if he is ready mentally, physically, emotionally to stay here -- then he will stay," Rizzo said. "He may change the developmental plan for us."
