07:13 AM ET 09.11 | Soon, perhaps very soon, Bryce Harper will have returned to the lineup, courtesy a positive MRI result earlier this week. The Nationals were mainly concerned about any pain Harper felt when he swung. Medical director Dr. Wiemi Douoguih prescribed Harper anit-inflammatory medication for the pain in his hip, which he played through for at least a week before a painful swing floored him as he took swings in a cage 10 minutes before first pitch Saturday night in Miami. ... Harper said he could not comment on hip on the instruction of General Manager Mike Rizzo. Harper was polite in dealing with reporters who approached him at his locker and appeared to be in good spirits. Johnson has worried about Harper's penchant for taking too many swings to prepare for a game, which may have led to the inflammation.

The extent of the injury to his hip wasn't mentioned by the doctor only that an mri on hip was positive. If injury was nothing serios why did hefall to floor on a swing in the cage. If injury wasn't seriours why did Rizzo give harper orders not to discuss injury with press. Rizz has no spine and does not want to answer questions aout arper playing with injury. My question would hav to be why are the Nationals even playing Harper with injury? It is not like the naionalsare playing for a wild card spot. Shut Haper down for remainder of year. Continue treatment and strengthen hip over winter to be ready for2014.
