Harper "day-to-day" with sprained ankle

JUPITER, Fla. -- Top Nationals prospect Bryce Harper sprained his left ankle running to first base in a minor-league scrimmage Monday morning in Viera.

The severity of the injury won't be known until Harper undergoes X-rays and a possibe MRI, though a team spokesman said the 18-year-old outfielder is listed as "day-to-day" for now.

Here's my article for, which I'll be updating as we get more info.

UPDATE: Jim Riggleman suggested the injury is not serious: "The little bit of information I got was that he's fine. Just turned his ankle and he's fine."

That is good news for what could have been horrific news. When it happened, were most of you already in Jupiter?

This will lead to a slow start in low Class A ball, which means he'll probably only hit .750.

Also, his OPS would only be about 1.1133 (rest easy, Ted Williams - for now). ;-)

I find it funny that almost everywhere but here people's response to a sprained ankle, which I have survived several times = death sentence!

I'm sure this will erase Libya and Japan off the front pages.
