Washington Nationals Bryce Harper To Resume Baseball Activities

Still dealing with knee bursitis from the horrific crash into the wall at Dodger Stadium, Washington Nationals slugger Bryce Harper is preparing to resume baseball activities in a ‘day or two’, this according to Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo.

Speaking to 106.7 The Fan, Rizzo hinted that Harper is recovering well and should start getting back into the swing of things in the near future.

Per Adam Kilgore:

On 106.7, Mike Rizzo says Bryce Harper will resume baseball activities in “the next day or two.” But no timetable on return to the field.

While no “official” timetable has been given for the said return, Harper, who was still dealing with “puffiness” in his knee just a few days ago is reportedly expected to begin a rehab assignment in the next week or so with hopes that he’ll return to the Major League level before the end of the month.

The 20 year old Harper was batting .287 with 12 home runs and 23 RBI in 44 games before being placed on the disabled list.
