Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will begin a minor league rehab assignment tomorrow with High-A Potomac, reports Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com. He’s slated to play three innings and start in left field in his return to game action.

Harper has been sidelined since May 26 with left knee bursitis. The 20-year-old wasn’t originally expected to begin a rehab assignment until Wednesday at the earliest, but his timetable was moved up after an impressive round of batting practice earlier today at Nationals Park.

Depending on how Harper’s knee responds, he could return as soon as this weekend against the Mets. The Nationals could wait until the start of their next homestand next Monday against the Brewers if they feel he needs a little more time. Either way, he’ll be a welcome addition for an offense which ranks dead-last in the majors this month with 70 runs scored.
