Bryce Harper had said he'd worked out hard in the offseason, often tweeting photos of himself hitting the weights. But until this photo surfaced of Harper, prior to a Nats spring training game against the Braves on Tuesday, March 4, 2014, the mass he’d packed on perhaps hadn’t been so evident.

More from 106.7 the Fan

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Everyone wants to weigh-in on Bryce Harper’s intimidating physique this week (especially after this photo surfaced, sending the internet into a frenzy on Wednesday), even teammates.

Anthony Rendon described Harper’s meatier look as being similar to “a 30-year-old man trapped in a kid’s body” or a “large cat” or something.

Now Denard Span has given his thoughts on the matter.

“Right now he’s about 240,” Span told 106.7 The Fan’s Chad Dukes. “He looks like Brian Urlacher out there playing left field.”

“You can definitely tell he worked out this offseason. We’ll see how he looks in a couple months — I’m pretty sure he’ll slim down — but, yea, you can definitely tell that the ball is jumping off his bat even more than it already had been in the past.”

Harper’s teammates are all clearly impressed. Who wouldn’t be?

You don’t see these guys for four months, and they come back as different people.

Keep it here for the latest commentary on Harper’s physique, and all other striking physical abnormalities of Nationals players.
