Bryce Harper's Scary Knee Injury Diagnosed As A "Significant" Bone Bruise

Bryce Harper's Scary Knee Injury Diagnosed As A

The words of Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker were echoed by teammates, opponents, as well as thousands of fans after Saturday's scary injury to Bryce Harper's leg that saw him contorted in pain down the first base line after slipping on the wet base and hyperextending his knee. The play was not pretty. The 15-year veteran had to mentally prepare to pitch again Saturday, and had to wait out an additional three hours because of more rain. They are bound to be upset and anxious now. The 2015 National League MVP is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBI. Pitching coach Mike Maddux said that Strasburg is likely to throw about five innings and 75 pitches in his first rehab outing. The first game takes place at 1:05 p.m. ET, with the second meeting set for 7:05 p.m. ET. The San Francisco Giants hand the ball to right hander Jeff Samardzija for Sunday's start at the Washington Nationals.

While trying to beat out an infield single in the top of the first inning, Bryce Harper slid on first base and landed awkwardly on his left leg. The Nationals have been in cruise control for the majority of 2017 and despite some key injuries have maintained a sizeable lead in the National League East. He was able to do that, as Melancon allowed one hit and had one strikeout against his most recent team in the eighth inning, his first work since June 27.

The Nationals lost center fielder Adam Eaton for the season in late April when he also hit the bag in a odd way at first base at home. That's what we usually do when things are in a bad way. "I'm very optimistic that he'll be at least fine shortly", Baker said. Fellow outfielder Michael Taylor (right oblique strain) was activated from the 10-day disabled list in a corresponding move and will assume Harper's spot on the active roster for the time being.
