Nationals | Bryce Harper undergoes X-rays

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper's (side) X-rays came back negative Thursday, May 2. He's dealing with the remnants of a bruise under his left shoulder blade. "The check swing, having all the force going toward the ball then just stopping, immediately it just got me a little bit," said Harper, who went 0-for-2 but drew an important leadoff walk in the fourth inning. "It got me to the point where I couldn't breathe and I had to catch my breath. It didn't feel very good." Harper is hoping he can play Thursday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: With Jayson Werth (ankle, hamstring) also ailing, Tyler Moore and Roger Bernadina have been forced into action. It's a little unclear exactly how serious Harper's injury is, but it looks like the Nats dodged a bullet so far. Werth's injury may be more serious. If you're targeting an outfielder for depth, Moore is your best bet.
