Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was lifted for a pinch hitter, Nate Schierholtz, in the fourth inning of Monday night's game in Atlanta, according to James Wagner of the Washington Post. Schierholtz remained in the game to play left field.

Nationals announcer Bob Carpenter said Harper experienced light-headedness. Several Nats players have had the flu recently.

Harper, who struck out in his previous at-bat, is hitting .270/.341/.429 (OPS+ 113) with 13 homers and 32 RBI in 89 games. The lefty slugger lost two months from April 26-June 30 with a torn ligament in his left thumb.

Known for his agressive style of play, Harper, 21, was the Nationals 2010 first-round draft pick, making his major-league debut on April 28, 2012. He is a two-time All-Star and 2012 NL Rookie of the Year. Harper is pre-arb but signed for his first five years at $9.9 million (2011-15). He is under team control through the 2018 season.
