Bryce Harper is sitting out his third straight game tonight.
BALTIMORE — It wouldn't be a day on the Nationals beat without a flurry of injury updates, so here's the latest on several players attempting to return from various ailments...

Bryce Harper is once again out of the Nationals' lineup tonight, his bruised left knee not healed enough to allow him to play for the third straight day. Manager Davey Johnson said the 20-year-old outfielder will be held out again tomorrow.

Whether Harper (who has officially been diagnosed with bursitis in his left knee) is able to play this weekend in Atlanta remains to be seen.

"I don't have a lot of high hopes, but I'm hopeful," Johnson said. "However long that takes, is however long that takes."

Jayson Werth began his rehab assignment at Class A Potomac tonight, batting second and starting in right field for the P-Nats. This is Werth's second attempt at returning to game action since he was sidelined at the beginning of the month with what the club originally believed to be only a mild hamstring strain.
