Bryce Harper Injury Labeled as Bone Bruise, No Ligament or Tendon Damage

Bryce Harper Injury Labeled as Bone Bruise, No Ligament or Tendon Damage

Of course, the Washington Nationals have had their fair share of those kinds of injuries this year when Adam Eaton tore his ACL in late April trying to beat out an infield single against the Mets.

Bryce Harper injured his left knee when he slipped on a wet first base, a potentially devastating blow to the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. The injury stunned a crowd that waited three hours for the rain-delayed game, which the Nationals won 3-1.

That's especially important considering Harper can be a free agent after the 2018 season, crystallizing Washington's championship window with Max Scherzer in his prime and a lineup built with power around the 29-year-old face of the franchise, Daniel Murphy, Trea Turner, Anthony Rendon and Ryan Zimmerman.

San Francisco Giants' Gorkys Hernandez, right, steals second against Washington Nationals shortstop Wilmer Difo (1) during the fourth inning of the first baseball game of a split doubleheader, Sunday, Aug. 13, 2017, in Washington.

Harper has been on the disabled list only twice in his career: In 2013, he missed 31 games with left-knee bursitis, and in 2014, he missed 57 games after having surgery on his left thumb.

Since the Giants don't come back to D.C. this year, it was Major League Baseball's call on whether or not this game should be played. "But it's a pitch that I've used - a pitch that I can definitely use more in the repertoire and add it to the arsenal to get hitters off the fastball and cutters and the slider".

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said, "I don't know what happened really". That game started after 10 p.m., with a sparse crowd in attendance, a repeat that was spared Friday night. Baker said he hopes that's not the case with Harper.

Along with being rivals, Baker and Bochy are friends.
