Nats’ Harper Agrees to Three-Game Suspension Following Fight

20170531 Harper Fight

Nats star Bryce Harper will be suspended for only three games, after he reached an agreement with Major League Baseball Wednesday.

As a result of the agreement, Harper dropped his appeal of his supension -- which had been four games. He began serving his suspension immediately.

The punishment stems from a bench-clearing brawl on Monday after Harper was hit by a 98 mph fastball from Giants reliever Hunter Strickland.

Strickland received a six-game suspension.
