In MLB The Show, Bryce Harper could play for any team thanks to its roster features. EA Sports showed off how that’s possible by putting Harper on every single MLB team with their simulations forecast. Some of the results were quite interesting.
MLB The Show Simulation: Braves, Mets, Marlins
With 75 days until MLB The Show 19 arrives, they simulated Harper on every team in ‘18 including some major long shots. To no one’s surprise, Harper improves every team he is added to in major ways.
The Miami Marlins didn’t make the playoffs under the simulation, however, they do gain 12 games in the win column from the previous year. The team finishes 75-87 while Harper puts up monster numbers. The left-handed slugger hits 40 homers, 113 RBI and finishes the year hitting an even .300.
A better number than '76.

The Braves and Mets saw much better results for Harper and the team.
In Atlanta, Harper sets a personal high in RBI with 106 and finishes the year with a .312 average. He also smashes 28 home runs. The teams ends the season with an 84-78 record, but fails to make the postseason.
Harper absolutely shines in New York! Under the MLB The Show 18 simulation, Bryce becomes the king of the Big Apple as he leads the Mets to a 99-63 record and the National League East crown. He also blasts a career-high 44 home runs, drives in 116 while hitting .308. MVP numbers for sure!
MLB The Show Simulation: Phillies, Nationals
On to the City of Brotherly Love. Harper, who is heavily rumored to sign with the Phillies, performs his best under the MLB 18 simulation. No. 34 leads the Phillies to a trip to the NLCS while posting some insane stats along the way. Harper’s final stats looked this way: 41 home runs, 113 RBI and a .325 average.

Last but not least, what if Harper stayed in D.C.?
Nationals fans won’t like this if Harper signs elsewhere in 2019, but it seems that this could be a big year for Washington according to the MLB The Show simulation crew.
Harper leads Washington to a 105-57 record and a trip to the NLCS. The Las Vegas native finishes the season with 32 home runs, 88 RBI and an eye-popping .343 average. If Harper doesn’t return to D.C., fans may be hoping that this MLB The Show simulation is a bit off!
