After waiting three hours to start tonight's game, the Washington Nationals may have just had the worst news possible. The 26-year-old, who replaced veteran Matt Cain in the rotation, allowed three runs on five hits in as many innings. The 2015 MVP is hitting.326 with 29 home runs and 87 RBIs in 106 games this season, and his presence in the lineup is crucial to Washington playing deep into October.
Rizzo, who spoke to the media, said Harper will be placed on the disabled list. When Harper left the stadium, he was walking on his own power in the Nationals' clubhouse around 1:45 a.m. Sunday morning after a 3-1 win by the Nationals over the San Francisco Giants.
The Nationals now hold a 14-game lead in the National League East, and it doesn't seem that there will a be historic collapse for the team. "But it's a pitch that I've used - a pitch that I can definitely use more in the repertoire and add it to the arsenal to get hitters off the fastball and cutters and the slider". This time, he was scheduled to start Friday, but the game was rained out and Stratton was bumped two days so Jeff Samardzija could pitch Saturday on normal rest.
When the game finally got going, there was still drizzle falling from the sky which made the bases slick. Giants manager Bruce Bochy realizes the situation Stratton faced.
Baker entered Saturday night with 1834 wins in 22 seasons - one short of matching Bochy and Lou Piniella for 14th on the all-time list. Baker said Bochy was the first one to call him when he was sacked by Cincinnati, and Baker called in April when Bochy had a heart procedure.
"The good thing is he's young and strong", Baker said.
Chris Stratton had to wait 42 extra hours to make his start at Nationals Park. And they won't have a rested starter to take the ball on Wednesday.
