Bryce Harper left Saturday's game against the Giants after fouling a ball off his left leg.

Harper finished off the at-bat, which ended in a flyout to center field, but Jayson Werth moved to right field and Tyler Moore took over in left field to open the bottom of the seventh. Washington was trailing 10-5 at that point, so it may have been a precautionary move. There should be an update Sunday from the Nats.

Harper finished the night 1-for-4 and is now slashing an other-worldly .331/.457/.645 with 30 homers and 74 RBI on the season.

Bryce Harper went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Harper's had a somewhat sketchy series against his divisional rivals this weekend. On Friday, he went 0-for-5 with a strikeout before being ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the 11th inning. The Nationals lost that game. They lost on Saturday, too, though Harper at least managed to stay on the field for the duration of this one. Occasional shenanigans aside, the 22-year-old outfielder is an NL MVP front-runner and is currently hitting .332/.458/.677 with 29 home runs, 68 RBI and four steals.
