Bryce Harper hurts hamstring at Class AA Harrisburg, will be reevaluated

Top prospect Bryce Harper left Class AA Harrisburg’s game against Akron in the eighth inning Thursday with a strained right hamstring. According to reports, he stumbled short of third base while running from first on a single, hobbled to the bag and was carried off the field by two Harrisburg staff members.

The Nationals planned to reevaluate Harper on Friday. With two weeks remaining in the minor league season, depending on the severity of the injury, the Nationals may consider simply shutting him down until the Arizona Fall League begins. In 36 games at Harrisburg, Harper is hitting. .254 with a .324 on-base percentage and a .397 slugging percentage.
