In his second career game, Bryce Harper will bat seventh and play center field, not left, against Dodgers left-hander Chris Capuano. This season at Class AAA, Harper went 4 for 21 with six strikeouts against left-handed pitching. Jayson Werth, who has typically played center against lefty starters, will stick in right field.
