That’s partly for his own development, but perhaps as importantly because it’s unclear how protected he’d be.

The Bills already had Dion Dawkins on hand to replace Glenn. They brought in veteran center Russell Bodine to replace Wood. They’ve moved Vlad Ducasse from right guard to Incognito’s spot on the left, and have an odd lot of young players and journeymen (like free agent pickup Marshall Newhouse) trying to fill in the cracks and create depth.

And Newhouse has been around long enough to know they can’t declare the question answered.

It’s just the second time in his career that Harper has been hit by a pitch multiple times in a single game, the other coming in 2013.

Despite concerns over the beanings, Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Harper is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday as the team closes out the two-game series.

Harper, 25, is hitting just.228 but has 43 RBIs and leads the NL with 19 home runs.
