Nationals top prospect Bryce Harper left Sunday's game for the low Single-A Hagerstown Suns after getting hit by a pitch on his knee during his first at-bat.
A club source confirms that Harper is in tonight's starting lineup. This is good news that any problem with Harper's left knee was not serious. Harper would not want to leave the starting nine now as he is enjoying another hot streak at the plate, batting .400 with three homers and seven RBIs in his last 10 games. During one four-game span, he was 10-for-16.
Harper is hitting .338 with 13 homers and 41 RBIs in 55 games.
