The Nationals outfielder took a scary fall over the weekend and suffered what appeared to be a gruesome injury. Harper injured his left knee when his foot slipped on first base. The base itself was unmistakably wet, the result of ongoing rain that was preceded by a three-hour rain delay.

The diagnosis is a clear win for Harper and his long-term health, but the severity of a bone bruise should not be minimized.
