Harper not playing for Gulf Coast Nats

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, the  No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft, will be introduced to the media during the team’s next homestand, but no specific date has been set.

After meeting with the media, Harper will work out with the Gulf Coast Nationals, but will not play in any of the reaming games with them. However, Harper will start playing in the Instructional League this fall.

“Contractually, he is not going to play in any games [in the Gulf Coast League],” general manager Mike Rizzo said.
