On Sunday, Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will undergo additional tests on his ailing left hip, and, in the words of Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, the team is worried that Harper "may be injured more seriously than initially believed."

Harper has missed three out of the last four games, and prior to Saturday night's contest he collapsed in pain while taking swings in the Nationals' indoor batting cage. "I was a little upset that he keeps swinging instead of just resting and playing," Johnson said. "He's still young and exuberant and has his own routine. Hopefully he'll get fixed and be fine in New York."

Johnson went on to say he doesn't know whether Harper will play again this season.

On the year, the 20-year-old phenom is batting a productive .273/.377/.504 (141 OPS+) with 19 homers in 101 games.
