Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper might have to sit a few days to rest a sore knee still feeling the effects of a collision with the Dodger Stadium wall, and Ross Detwiler will miss another start and go on the disabled list because of a strained oblique muscle.
Harper was gimpy for much of Sunday's 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. He aggravated the knee twice with head-first slides in the first inning, then fouled a pitch off the knee in the third. He was removed for a pinch runner in the seventh.
Johnson said Harper will ''probably be down a few days.'' Harper said he doesn't expect to miss any time.
With Detwiler on the DL, left-hander Xavier Cedeno will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

Aggravating his bummed left knee three times in Sunday’s 6-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson may wisely shelve Bryce Harper for a few days. An All-Star and National League Rookie of the Year award winner in 2012, the 6-foot-3, 230 pound Harper suffered shoulder and knee bruises after violently colliding with the outfield wall at...

...good thing for his beard Davey's retiring at the end of the season.
Orioles 6, Nationals 2: Gio Gonzalez didn't have it (5.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 3 K, 109 pitches, 67 strikes), and the Davey Johnson Shave Watch continues.
At this rate, Davey won't get to shave until September 30.

Ross Detwiler was unable to recover as expected from his oblique strain, which landed him on the disabled list, so the Nats needed a starting pitcher to replace him in the rotation. Conventional wisdom had either Zach Duke making another spot start or even Chris Young getting a chance despite disappointing numbers in Triple-A, which wasn't exactly going to get anyone excited...
And so, since Davey Johnson told reporters Friday afternoon that he wouldn't shave until the Nats start hitting, we figured we might as well start a "Davey Johnson Shave Watch" as a public service until Davey finally shaves.
"I figured [the face] couldn't get any uglier, so what the heck. Hopefully, I can shave soon." (Davey Johnson, via Nationals...
Davey Johnson says he's giving up his razor until the Washington Nationals find their bats.
