  • Washington Nationals Bryce Harper left prepares to hit San Francisco Giants Hunter Strickland after being hit with a pitch in the eighth inning of a baseball game Monday

Nationals President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Mike Rizzo said the outfielder suffered the injury on Saturday while crossing first base.

As the 24-year-old was running out a ground ball to the right of the infield, he avoided contact with first baseman Ryder Jones before his left foot slipped. Harper clutched his left knee in agony as trainers came out to assist.

"I think (starter Jeff Samardzija) said he tried to extend the knee a little bit and try to catch the corner of the bag, and I think he might've slipped on the top", Jones said.

Now, it looks like Harper could eveen be back this season if all goes well.

When Harper left the stadium, he was walking on his own power in the Nationals' clubhouse around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning after a 3-1 win by the Nationals over the San Francisco Giants. The Nationals and Giants are set to play a doubleheader on Sunday.

For the second straight day, the Nationals and Giants were forced into a rain delay due to storms in Washington, D.C., and after deciding to postpone Friday's contest, the teams were forced to wait and do everything in their power to get the game in. Should the knee injury necessitate a trip to the disabled list, it'll be his first stint on the DL since undergoing thumb surgery in 2014. "We just ask for prayers that it's not serious".

Nationals right-hander Edwin Jackson added: "When you see a calibre of player like that, or any player, go down like that, you hope for the best". He was carried off the field without putting weight on his left leg.

Harper, the 2015 National League MVP, is now tied for the Major League lead with 14 two-strike home runs this season and leads the MLB with 12 first-inning longballs.
