Bryce Harper hand injury not serious
Harper was scheduled to bat third and play left field against the New York Mets on Saturday, but manager Davey Johnson told Harper in the morning that he would not be playing.
Johnson says he's not concerned about the swelling and expects Harper to be back in the lineup Sunday when the Nationals play Atlanta.
