Harris gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless seventh inning to record his first save of the season during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.
With the score tied 3-3 in the sixth inning, Harris began warming up, but when the Nats took the lead in the bottom of the frame, manager Dave Martinez elected to let the right-hander handle the save chance. Harris had a tough start to his tenure with Washington but has now reeled off six straight scoreless appearances, giving him a 3.06 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 21:9 K:BB through 17.2 innings.
Harris (0-1) allowed one run on three hits while striking out a batter in an inning of work as he was dealt the loss Wednesday against the Phillies.
Harris entered the game after Patrick Corbin allowed an opening triple to begin the seventh and was unable to salvage a 2-1 lead. He allowed the runner from third to score on an RBI single before Bryce Harper drove in another with two outs. It wasn't all Harris' fault as Victor Robles and Adam Eaton had a collision out in right field on a flyball that neither of them ended up catching. Harris now has a 4.26 ERA across 6.1 innings this season and he should still continue to receive late-inning work for the time being.
Harris (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Harris has been working his way back from a right groin strain that has kept him sidelined since the end of July, but he faced hitters Tuesday.

Harris (groin) will face hitters Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The move was made retroactive to Wednesday, so Harris could return as soon as next Saturday. Whether or not he's expected to do so remains to be seen. Harris has appeared twice this season, allowing three runs (one earned) over 1.1 innings.
Harris is dealing with a minor groin issue according to manager Dave Martinez, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Martinez added that they're hoping Harris can get through the injury without missing any time with the Nationals entering a four-day period without a game.

Harris threw a bullpen session Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
An abdominal injury prevented the right-hander from seeing any action during the Grapefruit League schedule back in March, but Harris is now 100 percent healthy and should be ready to go for Opening Day later this month. The former Astro will fill a high-leverage role for the Nats out of the bullpen.
Harris (abdomen) completed a bullpen session Wednesday and said afterward that he thinks he'll be ready to go for Opening Day, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Though Harris indicated he felt good coming out of Wednesday's workout, the Nationals will proceed more carefully with the reliever as he works back from a left abdominal strain, which is related to the sports hernia surgery he required during the offseason. He's scheduled to throw another bullpen session Friday before likely progressing to a live batting practice session early next week. Harris may only need two or three relief appearances in spring training to guarantee his availability for the March 26 opener.
Harris (abdomen) threw a two-inning simulated game Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Harris struck out one though a hitless and scoreless two-thirds of an inning to record his third save in a 3-0 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.
