After aggravating a knee injury sliding and noticeably limping throughout yesterday’s game Bryce Harper is out of the Nationals’ lineup today. He’s also expected to sit tomorrow.

Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that an MRI exam revealed no structural damage and Harper has been diagnosed with bursitis in his left knee.

According to Zuckerman if he feels better within the next 48 hours Harper could rejoin the lineup at designated hitter during an interleague series against the Orioles beginning Wednesday, allowing him to hit without having to play the outfield.

Harper injured his knee violently slamming into the outfield wall at Dodger Stadium on May 13 and admitted last night that he’ll probably have to play through knee problems all season.

    Should’ve DL’d him.

    Man, if that hit into the wall forever changes his career, what a story that would end up being.
