Harper has been on the disabled list since June 2 with bursitis in his left knee and last appeared for the Nationals on May 26.
Harper took pre-game warmups with a brace on his left knee and was wearing No. 32 as opposed to his regular No. 34 with the Nationals.
Entering Monday night, last year's National League Rookie of the Year, had missed 25 straight games and 31 of the Nationals first 75 games this season. After having the best record in the majors last season at 98-64, the Nationals have struggled without Harper and are 37-38.
