Bryce Harper does not have ligament or tendon damage

Bryce Harper does not have ligament or tendon damage

Bryce Harper is helped off the field after suffering the knee injury in the 1st inning Saturday night.

"We know he hyperextended it when he slipped going across the bag". Strickland, apparently still displeased that Harper yelled at him after hitting a home run in the 2014 NLDS, threw a fastball to the hip, Harper charged the mound and fists flew as the rest of the Giants - including catcher Buster Posey initially held back as if behind invisible ropes.

USA says aircraft to help Philippines fight pro-IS militants
Vietnam Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh is among top diplomats from more than 20 countries attending meetings in Manila this week. Wang said the two had an intensive conversation during which China urged North Korea to maintain calm.

The Nationals announced Sunday that Harper avoided structural damage in his injured left knee, but he will be out indefinitely because of a significant bone bruise. "We're just hoping for the best". The team is placing him on the 10-day disabled list and activating outfielder Michael Taylor. Jackson, who spent a month prior with Class AAA Syracuse, got his first shot at the starting role when he started in Los Angeles against the Angels and got the win after allowing only three hits and two runs in seven innings.

During Baker's two years between jobs, Giants manager Bruce Bochy passed him on the all-time managerial victories list. Pitching for San Diego a year ago, he pitched well against us. Jackson fell to 2-2 with a 3.75 ERA in his last four starts. Hitting coach Rick Schu and trainer Paul Lessard then helped Harper off the field, with Manager Dusty Baker trailing. They will be opposed by Giants RHP Chris Stratton (0-2, 6.63) and LHP Matt Moore (3-12, 5.88). Of course, the Washington Nationals have had their fair share of those kinds of injuries this year when Adam Eaton tore his ACL in late April trying to beat out an infield single against the Mets.

Man Utd 'love' Luke Shaw; have no plans to sell defender
Shaw has been linked with a Untied exit in recent months, with Tottenham star Danny Rose backed to replace the former Southampton ace.

When his foot touched down on first base, Harper took a dramatic tumble, and immediately began clutching his knee. Major League Baseball, not the Nationals, decided if and when the game would be played because the Giants don't return to Washington this season.
