Nationals | Bryce Harper close to rehab assignment
Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) took swings and ran in the outfield Thursday, June 20, and is close to going on a rehab assignment, according to manager Davey Johnson. "From the way I look at it, he goes and plays a couple games and he doesn't have any swelling in the knee, he'll be ready," Johnson said. "As far as timing, I'm not worried about that. It's just, can his knee stand the punishment of being on it?"
Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Harper is extremely close to returning to the Nationals. A minor league rehab assignment could only last a game or two, as the team had indicated earlier. Get ready to put him back into your lineup.
