Harper went 2 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs on Thursday.

Harper has been red hot of late, hitting .417 with four extra-base hits and five runs scored in his last three games.

Harper hit his third home run of the season Friday.

He has nine runs and six RBIs through the season's first 11 games, and has upped his on-base percentage to .375 with five walks in his last three contests.

Harper was 2 for 4 with a home run in Monday's loss to the Mets.

When Harper is healthy, he can produce like he did Monday. Fantasy owners are just hoping he can stay on the field after being limited to a career-low 100 games last year.

Harper is out for Thursday night's exhibition game because of a stomach bug. Nationals manager Matt Williams said Harper was at the Nationals' complex earlier in the day, getting ready to play against the New York Mets. ''He came in, did a little bit of light swinging in the cage and he's still not feeling good, so we sent him home. I think he'll be OK to go'' on Friday, Williams said.

Harper was ill Wednesday and scratched from the travel roster for the game against St. Louis in Jupiter, Florida. ''It's one of those rites of spring that everybody goes through at one point or the other during spring training,'' Williams said. ''He just happened to have it the last couple of days. But he's good.''
