The morning after Harper slipped on a wet base, hyperextended his left knee and crumpled to the dirt in pain, the Nationals announced that he has been diagnosed with a "significant" bone bruise.

The Nationals are optimistic that Harper will return at some point this season, general manager Mike Rizzo said.

One of the leaders in the NL MVP race, Harper was hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBI this season. He was unable to put weight on his left leg following the incident and had to be carried off the field by team trainers. "He's going to get an MRI", manager Dusty Baker said. Andrew Stevenson replaced Harper in the team's lineup.

The Nationals and Giants game had already been delayed for several hours due to rain, so Nationals fans were already a little annoyed. The Nationals are 69-45 and the Giants are 46-71, including 0-4 this year against Washington. Harper's leg buckled, he went airborne, and he fell to the ground as his helmet went flying.

The San Francisco Giants and the Washington Nationals take the field in DC in a Sunday MLB match up.

Despite soggy conditions and a considerable amount of water on the field, San Francisco and Washington wound up commencing their three-game series past 10 p.m. local time on Saturday night. The Nationals have been in cruise control for the majority of 2017 and despite some key injuries have maintained a sizeable lead in the National League East.

The Nationals now have "no timeline whatsoever" for Harper's return, according to Rizzo.

Harper is under contract through next season and can be a free agent in the winter of 2018. The good thing is he's young and strong.
