Scott Taetsch/Getty ImagesWashington Nationals star Bryce Harper found himself in the middle of multiple run-ins with home plate umpire Laz Diaz during Friday night's game against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-jason-vargas-jersey , and Washington skipper Dave Martinez wants MLB to look into the situation."I'm not going to make any comments on balls and strikes there, but umpires are supposed to be nonconfrontational. They're supposed to uphold the peace on the baseball field," Martinez said. "For me, I think MLB needs to take a look at that. That's all I'm going to say. I've known Laz for a very long time. I'm not going to throw anybody under the bus, but we're in a pivotal moment of the game, and he's saying things to Harp, and I thought that was uncalled for."The first incident was rather unusual, as Diaz stepped out from behind home in the bottom of the fifth inning and said something to the Nationals dugout while pointing at Harper, who had struck out swinging in the top of the frame, in center. As Tom Gatto of Sporting News pointed out http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-pedro-martinez-jersey , the MASN broadcast picked up some of what Diaz said in the exchange."He needs to cut it out," Diaz said, per Gatto. "You need to talk to him. You need to talk to him. ... You take him or I will, I guarantee you that. ... That's OK, I'll take care of it. ... I'll take care of it."Diaz did not eject Harper鈥攂ut that was not the last of the confrontations.When the 2015 National League MVP stepped to the plate in the top of the seventh, he took issue with Diaz calling a strike on a pitch that appeared to be well outside. As the two exchanged words, Martinez came out to protect his player. Neither Harper nor Martinez was tossed.Harper finished 1-for-5 with one RBI and the one strikeout. Afterward, he discussed what happened."That's my biggest thing this year is I don't want to get tossed. So, I think I go to the edge and then kinda quiet up," Harper said.Harper also said Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers heard what Diaz said.The Braves won the game Giancarlo Stanton Jersey , 10-5, but chief baseball operator Joe Torre and Co. will certainly have to take a look at what went down on the field in Atlanta on Friday night. Following comments by Washington Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo, the odds are significantly against the Nats trading outfielder Bryce Harper before Tuesday's non-waiver MLB trade deadline at 4 p.m. ET.According to OddsShark, the odds are plus-1,500 (15-1) that Rizzo will deal Harper, while they are minus-5,000 (1-50) for the GM to stick to his word.On Tuesday morning, Rizzo told Chelsea Janes of theWashington Post: "Bryce is not going anywhere. I believe in this team."ESPN'sTim Kurkjianreported that the Nats were gauging interest in what Harper could net them on the trade market.The 25-year-old Harper, who can become a free agent this offseason, is hitting .220 with 25 home runs and 62 RBI in 2018.He also has a National League-leading 84 walks http://wwwScott Taetsch/Getty ImagesWashington Nationals star Bryce Harper found himself in the middle of multiple run-ins with home plate umpire Laz Diaz during Friday night's game against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park http://www.metsfanproshop.com/authentic-jason-vargas-jersey , and Washington skipper Dave Martinez wants MLB to look into the situation."I'm not going to make any comments on balls and strikes there, but umpires are supposed to be nonconfrontational.
