Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper has been given a cortisone injection in his swollen left knee, and he will wear a brace to ensure he rests the joint.
Harper was given the shot after he visited noted orthopedist Dr. James Andrews on Monday in Pensacola, Fla. Trainer Lee Kuntz said Tuesday Harper will rest the knee for a week.
Kuntz said that Andrews confirmed the original diagnosis made by team doctors that Harper, who is on the 15-day disabled list, has patellar bursitis.
Harper was photographed with his knee wrapped and wearing a heavy brace, setting off Internet speculation that he had some sort of surgery. But Kuntz reiterated that was not the case.
Also, Nationals manager Davey Johnson said right-hander Stephen Strasburg, who is on the DL with a lat strain, threw a simulated game Tuesday and came out of it well.
