WASHINGTON (AP) - Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper was set to begin a rehabilitation assignment as he recovers from left knee bursitis that has sidelined him for nearly a month.
Manager Davey Johnson says Tuesday that Harper, who hasn't played since May 26, likely won't rejoin the Nationals this weekend when they travel to New York. Harper was scheduled to start his rehabilitation assignment Tuesday night at Class-A Potomac.
Outfielder Jayson Werth, who left Sunday's game with a strained left groin, was in the Nationals' starting lineup Tuesday against Arizona.
The Nationals also placed pitcher Dan Haren on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Sunday, with right shoulder inflammation. They also recalled first baseman-outfielder Tyler Moore from Triple-A Syracuse.
