Bryce Harper May Sit; Detwiler To DL

[1]Bryce Harper is still feeling the effects of his collision with the Dodger Stadium wall, enough for manager Davey Johnson to consider resting the Washington Nationals outfielder for a few games.

Harper aggravated his sore left knee three times in Sunday’s 6-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, twice with head-first slides in the first inning.

For good measure, he then fouled a pitch off the knee in the third inning. He was limping throughout the game and was removed for a pinch runner after drawing a walk in the seventh.

Johnson also announced that left-hander Ross Detwiler will miss a second start and go on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained oblique muscle.
