Harper suffered bone bruise

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was injured on Saturday night against the San Francisco Giants at Nationals Park. According to the team on Sunday morning, after an MRI, he suffered a “significant bone bruise” in his knee.

While he is going to be out for some time, the National League East leaders are hoping he can return at some point this season. Harper did not suffer any structural damage.

“We feel we dodged a bullet,” Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said.

After a long rain delay, Harper slipped on the first base bag. He then landed awkwardly on his left leg.

Harper was carted off of the field. It looked worse than it turned out to be.

The injury happened in the first inning. He did not make contact with Giants first baseman Ryder Jones when the MVP-candidate went down.

When Harper went down, he was clutching his left knee and screaming in pain.
