credit: getty images Bryce Harper will miss Monday’s game against the Orioles but a MRI on the outfielders knee showed no structural damage. Harper aggravated his left knee when he slid head first into second base on Sunday. He later fouled a ball off his knee. The Nationals plan to keep Harper out of the lineup for a couple of games because they have fear he could further aggravate his knee if he were to play but the teams medical director Wiemi Douoguih said there would be no risk of structural damage if he played according to the Washington Post. “There’s no structural injury,” Douoguih said. “It’s just more time loss because it gets inflamed.” The Nationals could play Harper as a designated hitter on Wednesday. “DH’ing will probably be good for the him. He won’t run into any walls,” manager Davey Johnson said.
