Raise your right arm if you're from Las Vegas, were a teammate of Bryce Harper in high school, played at UNLV for Tim Chambers (who coached Bryce Harper during his "college year" for College of Southern Nevada), and are a client of Scott Boras.

Confirmed the Nats are taking Erick Fedde. He played with Bryce Haper at Las Vegas High School. "Best slider I've ever seen," Harper says.— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) June 6, 2014
Truly blessed to be picked by such an amazing organization! Can't wait to be back on the field to show they made a great decision #Nationals— Fedde (@ErickFedde) June 6, 2014
