Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper hasn't seen game action in the majors since April 25 because of torn ligaments in his left thumb, but he is presently wrapping up a minor-league rehab assignment and slated to come off the DL on Monday.

On the season, the 21-year-old is batting .289/.352/.422 with one homer in 21 games. The Nats are surely hoping that Harper's Saturday efforts are a sign of things to come.
