Nationals | Bryce Harper likely going on DL

Washington Nationals OF Bryce Harper (knee) is likely to be placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, June 1, according to a source with knowledge of the decision. They'll likely replace Harper on the roster with RP Erik Davis, whom they called up Friday, May 31. Washington hoped Harper would avoid the DL, but the swelling and inflammation in his left knee hasn't improved as quickly as they'd hoped.

Fantasy Tip: The Nats can back-date the move to Monday, May 27, but they'll probably still be cautious with Harper, especially since Jayson Werth (hamstring) may return on Tuesday. Roger Bernadina and Tyler Moore (versus southpaws) should split time in the outfield and will offer only erratic NL-only aid until Werth and Harper return. When Steve Lombardozzi isn't playing second base, he'll catch flies, as well.
