“Now that Jayson’s able to play a little bit more, I may pick my spots and give him a breather,” Johnson said. “Not so much for him, but maybe to get a Tyler Moore in there, which I haven’t been now that Werth’s back. I don’t have that sharing time with Bernadina and Tyler, so I’ll probably, tough left-hander I’ll probably take it off Harp – for no other reason than that’s what I’d do for all 25 guys on the roster to keep them sharp.”

Harper is hitting .176/.276/.256 since the all-star break. Harper played in the first 79 games of his major league career, starting 77 of then. Since, he hasn’t played in two 12 games.
