Nationals | Bryce Harper placed on disabled list

Confirming a previous report, the Washington Nationals have placed OF Bryce Harper (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of bursitis in his left knee. The move is retroactive to May 27, meaning that Harper is eligible to be activated June 11. In a corresponding move, RP Erik Davis has been recalled from Triple-A Syracuse.

Fantasy Tip: With Tyler Moore and Roger Bernadina off to slow starts, the Nats will suffer a significant decrease in offensive production from their outfield during Harper's absence (although Jayson Werth could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Tuesday, June 4). The team is optimistic that Harper will be ready to go as soon as he is eligible to return.
