Nationals | Bryce Harper could do baseball activities next week

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) will likely test his left knee while the club is in Philadelphia for a series that begins on Monday, June 17. He might perform baseball activities at that time, according to manager Davey Johnson. If all goes well, Harper is likely to play in rehab games and then could rejoin the Nationals shortly afterward. GM Mike Rizzo also explained prior to his team's game on Friday, June 14, that he wasn't aware of Harper's reservations about a cortisone injection until after the outfielder had expressed his feelings to the media last week. Harper received a cortisone shot, in addition to a platelet-rich plasma injection, earlier this week. Rizzo said that he, Dr. James Andrews and team physician Wiemi Douoguih explained it to Harper and discussed the scenario with Harper's father, Harper felt comfortable with the decision.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Harper could return to action within a week to 10 days. It's also nice to see that the front office has cleared up any misunderstandings with their now and future stud.
