Harper & Strasburg Outside Dodger Stadium (Video)

Despite being the undisputed faces of the National League Eastern Division leading Washington Nationals, Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg are by no means the statistical leaders of the 79-59 club, as least during the 2014 season.

After missing 59 games (due to a thumb injury), Harper's 11 HR places him 5th on the Nats, with his 29 RBI placing him 8th. The 21-year-old's .776 OPS marks the 6th spot on his team.

Harper, the 2010 first overall pick, has come down to Earth a bit, since being named both an All-Star and NL Rookie of the Year in 2012, with injuries serving as the most significant reason why. Back in '12, the Las Vegas native hit 22 HR, with 59 RBI and a .817 OPS (139 games). During 2013, Harper produced virtually the same stats, but in only 118 games, as a result of multiple injury setbacks (knee and hip).   

Strasburg's 2014 involves a stat line of 11-10, with a 3.49 ERA, 210 K's and a 1.19 WHIP. Though very solid numbers, Strasburg's ERA and WHIP effort places him fourth amid Washington's outstanding rotation. The 2009 first overall pick's strikeout total does rank as the fourth best mark in the entire NL.

So, it can be argued that the 2012 All-Star is more a victim of his team's outstanding pitching talent, as compared to any potential shortcomings on his end.

With that said, it should be noted that like his teammate Harper, Strasburg's career has been impacted by injury concerns, including successful Tommy John Surgery in 2010.

Wednesday, two hours prior to the Nationals game with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the two faces of Washington baseball were seen entering Dodger Stadium, via LA's administrative office entrance, after arriving to the park in a chauffeured SUV.
