Watch Bryce Harper go deep in his first at-bat of the spring

Bryce Harper is determined to put his disappointing 2016 season behind him, and he wasted no time doing so on Saturday.

In his first at-bat of the Grapefruit League season, Harper went deep against the Mets:

After being named the unanimous NL MVP in 2015, Harper regressed across the board offensively last season, hitting just .243/.373/.441 with 24 homers and 86 RBI. Although there were reports that he was battling a shoulder injury, Harper never confirmed them. Judging by first impressions this spring, his shoulder appears to be fine.
