Bryce Harper will be back in the bigs on Monday.

According to James Wagner of the Washington Post, the 20-year-old outfielder played in his final minor league rehab game on Saturday evening at Double-A Bowie. He finished 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts but was 4-for-11 with a homer, a triple, a double and three RBI over four total rehab games.

“The knee has felt good,” Harper told the Post after Saturday’s game. “Swelling a little but not anything we should be scared about or anything like that.”

Harper has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 27 because of bursitis in his left knee. He was batting .287/.386/.587 with 12 home runs, one triple, seven doubles and 23 RBI in 178 plate appearances before going down.

    Given recent history with DC phenoms and knee injuries, I’d be fine with Harper taking as much time as needed getting back.

    Can’t we get Harper, Puig and Trout to play on the same team. That would be one hell of an outfield for the next 15 years.
