07:10 AM ET 09.10 | Breathe, Washington, breathe. An MRI taken Monday morning of Bryce Harper's ailing left hip showed no structural damage, so the Nationals star outfielder could be back in the lineup as soon as Wednesday. Manager Davey Johnson said team medical director Wiemi Douoguih diagnosed Harper with inflammation in the hip and prescribed him anti-inflammatory medication and two more days of rest. If the 20-year-old outfielder can participate in pregame drills with no issues after that, he should be cleared to return after that. "All the tests -- the MRI and all that -- show no damage, no structural damage," Johnson said prior to Monday night's series opener against the Mets. "There's just irritation and inflammation in there. Take care of that, and he's good to go."

Lost season.

He's missed the better part of 2 months this year and he, and the team, have been really inconsistent.................not horrible.................just very inconsistent. I'm hoping that next year things can get back on track. Harper healthy all year, more consistent bullpen, not as much up and down offense and better defense. Too much to ask for? I don't think so. Lot of good stuff here. Big question for now? Who takes Davey's place.

If La Russa wanted to manage, he would have stayed in St. Louis. He retired, he wasn't fired. Plus, why exchanged one tired old man for another?

Shut the kid down and get him healthy for next year. There's no point in pushing him this season. It's down the crapper.

Agree. Only 19 games left I think.

Give it up Larussa won't be managing in Washington or any other team. Shut Harper down. Let him give hip plenty of time to heal. Not like nats are going to post season. Even a healthy Harper would get nationals to [post season.

Looking forward to a new manager in '14, for sure.

They'll probably go with someone younger. Like Charlie Manuel.
