Harper injury could be a problem for the Nationals

General manager Mike Rizzo announced Sunday morning that Harper does not have ligament or tendon damage in his left knee after a scary-looking injury during Saturday night's game vs. the San Francisco Giants. The play was not pretty.

After waiting three hours to start tonight's game, the Washington Nationals may have just had the worst news possible. They are bound to be upset and anxious now.

Harper, 24, left Saturday's game with a.326/.419/.614 batting line, 29 home runs and a 1.034 OPS through 472 PA in 2017. "We're optimistic we'll see him this season". For the 2015 National League MVP, any long-term injury would impact his future earnings. Only moisture. The Nationals delayed the first pitch for a half-hour and had the field tarped under partly sunny skies because of an approaching thunderstorm.

Shortly after the Giants took a 1-0 lead, Washington fought back with a pair of runs in the bottom of the inning off of Giants' starter Jeff Samardzija, but the Nationals won't remember the first inning for the comeback they managed. He ranks first in home runs, RBI, hits, OBP, slugging percentage, OPS and OPS-plus. Jones reached the base first for the out, but as soon as Harper's left foot touched the bag, he went airborne.

Dodgers Come From Behind to Beat Padres
Los Angeles now leads the National League West by a season-high 17 games, their largest division lead since September 8 1955. The last time Richard faced the Dodgers (June 30), he went just 4.1 innings and gave up seven earned on nine hits.


Harper had to be carried off after not being able to put any weight on the leg.

Harper, the 2015 National League MVP, is now tied for the Major League lead with 14 two-strike home runs this season and leads the MLB with 12 first-inning longballs. Harper fell to the ground and held his left knee for several minutes after making the second out. The top four in their starting rotation have avoided major problems, though Stephen Strasburg is one of Washington's 11 players on the disabled list.

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. He was talking to the Master. The good thing is he's young and strong.
