Nationals Injury Update: Bryce Harper, Wilson Ramos

By on 6/24/2014 10:00:00 AM

The Washington Nationals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday by the score of 3-0. The win improved the Nationals to 40-35, first in the National League East. Four Nationals' pitchers combined for a three-hit shutout and Adam LaRoche supplied the offense with a three-run home run in the third inning. On the injury front, Bryce Harper began a rehab assignment and Wilson Ramos continue his rehab assignment in attempts to return from the disabled list.

Our own Rose Ingberman reported a week ago that Harper took swings with two hands in a batting cage for the first time since he underwent surgery on his left thumb April 29.  He's now made enough progress to begin a rehab assignment.

I reported on June 22 that Ramos began a rehab assignment on Saturday with Harrisburg and went 1-for-3 with a home run. In three games with Harrisburg this season, Ramos is 2-for-11 with a home run and five RBI.

Dan Kolko, who covers the Nationals for MASNsports, tweeted the following update on Ramos and Harper.

Adam Kilgore, who covers the Nationals for The Washington Post, added the following.
Harper played left field and hit second for Potomac on Monday. He went 1-for-1 with a walk and a run scored.

In his third Major League season, Harper is batting .289 with a home run and nine RBI in 83 at bats. In 118 games last season, he batted .274 with 20 home runs and 58 RBI. Harper's a career .273 hitter with 43 home runs and 126 RBI.
