Big deal in Philadelphia
• Bryce Harper signed a 13-year, $330 million contract with the Phillies on March 2.
• The 26-year-old was a six-time All-Star outfielder for the Washington Nationals.
• He reached base all five times he batted Wednesday against his former team with two hits and three walks, and has reached base safely in eight consecutive plate appearances. He has three home runs this season.
• Harper broke into the major leagues at age 19. In seven seasons in Washington, Harper hit 184 homers with 521 RBI and a .280 batting average.
• His best season was 2015 when, at age 22, he was the National League MVP after leading the NL with 42 home runs, a .460 on-base percentage and .649 slugging percentage. His batting average fell to .249 last season.
• Harper was the No. 1 pick in the MLB draft in 2010 at age 17. The Nationals converted him from catcher to outfield, and he made his major league debut on April 12, 2012 at age 19.
• He made the All-Star team as a rookie, and was the third-youngest All-Star in history (behind Bob Feller and Dwight Gooden).
• Harper changed his uniform number from 34 to 3 as the Phillies are considering retiring the No. 34 for Roy Halladay.
