Harris (thoracic outlet syndrome) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday. He recently underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome and the team is officially saying he is dealing with right hand inflammation. Harris may not return this season.
Harris underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. The procedure carries a lengthy recovery timeline, so it's possible Harris is done for the year, though the Nationals have yet to officially announce his timeline. The veteran righty will likely shift to the 60-day injured list whenever the Nationals next need a 40-man roster spot.
Harris has been diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome and will undergo surgery Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The possibility of this diagnosis was feared and now it has become a reality for the veteran right-hander. Recovery time for thoracic outlet syndrome is typically multiple months, so it's very possible that Harris will miss the remainder of the season. That being said, the Nationals will likely provide an official timeline for the 36-year-old in the coming days, with a shift to the 60-day injured list almost certain.
Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Sunday that Harris will fly to Dallas to visit a hand specialist this week, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. After missing the first month of the season with right hand inflammation, Harris made eight appearances for the Nationals before he was moved back to the 10-day injured list Sunday due to the same issue. The Nationals don't plan to provide a timeline for Harris' return to action until he receives an evaluation from the specialist.
Harris was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with inflammation in his right hand, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The 36-year-old missed the first month of the season due to the same injury, and he continues to experience inflammation in his pitching hand. It's unclear how long Harris is expected to be sidelined, though he won't be eligible to be activated until early June.
