Bryce Harper Carried Off Field After Suffering Left Knee Injury Vs. Giants

San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Chris Stratton delivers a pitch during the first inning of the first baseball game of a split doubleheader against the Washington Nationals Sunday Aug. 13 2017 in Washington

The Washington Nationals received a huge scare in the first inning of their game with the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night in the form of a lower body injury for All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper.

The play occurred minutes into a game that started at 10:06 p.m. - after a three-hour, one-minute rain delay.

Bryce Harper injured his knee and had to be removed from the game on a play at first base in which his leg landed awkwardly. He went down hard.

Harper was unable to put weight on his leg and was carried off the field by his hitting coach and the team trainer.


Andrew Stevenson took over in center field and Brian Goodwin moved to right field.

Harper is now one of the leaders in the NL MVP race and is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBI.

There has been no update on Harper's injury.

For all of the Nationals' injuries this season, and there have been plenty of them, they have been able to avoid anything catastrophic since Eaton tore his anterior cruciate ligament.
