Bryce Harper activated from disabled list
After missing all of June with a knee injury, Nationals star Bryce Harper is back in the lineup Monday. He hit .364 in four rehab games.
Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals' lineup Monday. He hasn't played for the Nats since May 26 due to knee bursitis which stemmed from running into the right-field wall in Dodger Stadium on May 13.
Harper's four-game rehab assignment concluded Saturday. In those four games, he hit .364/.500/.909 with a double, triple, homer, three RBI and five runs, so he's obviously feeling fine at the plate. And now he's overly excited to be coming back to the bigs -- notice what he tweeted Sunday evening:
Harper, 20, is hitting .287/.386/.587 with 12 homers and 23 RBI in 44 games this season. The Nationals are 25-18 when Harper starts and 16-22 when he doesn't.
The Nationals face the Brewers in Washington Monday night to begin a seven-game homestand.
