Nats' Harper leaves game with apparent left knee injury

The Washington Nationals have provided the Bryce Harper injury update that Major League Baseball fans were waiting for. And none are particularly important to the players who now inhabit the dugout, the clubhouse and - far too frequently - the trainer's room.

The Washington Nationals indeed dodged a major bullet Saturday night as Bryce Harper did not do structural damage to his left knee. Baker said he hopes that's not the case with Harper.

"We're placing players in peril when they have no notice or familiarity with the surface they're playing on, " he said. But good over 162 games isn't the same as good over five or seven games, and goodness knows don't the Nats know that - or, at least, the 2012 and 2014 versions, especially, do.

And so it was under wet conditions that Harper, the NL MVP favorite and Nationals franchise player, sprinted down the first base line to try and beat out an infield single in the first inning Saturday. He should be placed on the disabled list Sunday, and more information about his recovery timetable should be known in the near future. So they fended for him.


Based on examinations and results of an MRI, the team said it's possible Harper will play again this season, which prompted a sigh of relief throughout the clubhouse, front office and fan base. "He should be thinking about wearing that ring home every single night". Fortunately, Washington has a 13 and a 1/2 game lead on the Miami Marlins in the division so the Nationals should be able to ride out the rest of the season to win the division and reach the playoffs. It's insane but it's definitely great to see him up in spirit and walking around and know that he won't be significantly out for a period of time or just hurt period.

Andrew Stevenson (2-for-4) got the start in center for the hosts. The Nats have a 14½-game N.L. East lead. That curveball is an example of the tantalizing potential Stratton possesses, but for the most part, has failed to harness. Taylor was reactivated on Sunday, just in time to replace Harper. Bob Gibson pitched with what turned out to be a broken leg. Players who needed reconstructive knee surgery have walked off the field. It is a great thing.

Moore still had his issues, as he gave up a pair of solo home runs and threw more than one pitch straight into the backstop. Losing Harper would have been a loss for all of baseball, luckily he should make a return just in time to face Kershaw in October - when the stage doesn't get any bigger. Probably. But Harper is streaky and, at times, has to play himself into a comfortable balance at the plate which ignites a hot period.
