Nats' Williams on Harper: 'I've got Bryce's back' (Yahoo Sports)

Yahoo - Tue, 2014-07-01 22:32
One day after Bryce Harper expressed his thoughts on the ideal lineup for the Washington Nationals, his manager had a clear message for reporters. Harper, Washington's left fielder pre-injury, suggested a configuration where he moves to center - the usual home for Denard Span. Williams said on Monday the daily lineup situation was ''fluid,'' but Washington's entire batting order and fielding roles remains identical following the 7-3 win. He's going to play in different spots in the outfield and he's OK with that too.'' On April 19, Williams famously benched the 21-year-old in the seventh inning against St. Louis for failing to run all the way to first base on a ground ball out.

A little extra zip made Drew Hutchison's fastball too much for the Milwaukee Brewers to handle. Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus hit solo home runs, Hutchison struck out a career-high 10 to snap a two-start losing streak and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Brewers 4-1 on Tuesday. Manager John Gibbons said Hutchison had ''a dynamite fastball.'' ''When he's on, he's on,'' Gibbons said. Pitching on an extra day's rest, Hutchison retired the first 14 batters he faced before outfielder Khris Davis reached on an infield single to shortstop in the fifth.

The Rangers have 10 days to trade, release, or outright Saunders to the minor leagues.
