In 23 games between April 21 and May 16, Harper was struggling with a .154 AVG, two HRs and a .600 OPS. Harper had a big weekend against the Rockies, hitting for two doubles, two home runs and six RBIs.

Last season with the Nationals, Harper went through a similar slump during a 40-game stretch between June 1 and July 20. Harper hit .188 with five HRs and a .694 OPS. After he turned a corner, he was a big problem for pitchers the rest of the season, hitting .301 with 11HRs and a .980 OPS.

If Harper can bounce back like he did last season, Phillies fans are in for a fun ride this summer.
