Washington Nationals infielder Mark DeRosa reportedly has aggravated his strained left oblique muscle during a dugout celebration. DeRosa, who is on the 15-day disabled list, reinjured himself giving a high-five to Bryce Harper on Sunday after the rookie stole home against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to the Washington Post. "I don’t know if that set back the rehab or not," manager Davey Johnson said. "But I said, 'Why didn’t use your (right) hand?' He said it was spur of the moment." DeRosa, 37, was hitting .081 in 13 games this season with two RBIs.

Bryce Harper Could Eventually Be In Line for $400 Million Contract With Yankees, According to Author

Bryce Harper's major league career is still, by far, in its infancy. However, that's not stopping many people from projecting incredible things for him, as they've done since he was 16 years old. The Washington Nationals phenom still has a ways to go until he reaches free agency -- he won't be able to be a free agent until 2018 -- but that doesn't mean some aren...

Nationals 7, Reds 3

Roger Bernadina and Danny Espinosa each hit a two-run homer Friday night in one of Washington's biggest scoring splurges of the season, leading the light-hitting Nationals to a 7-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
