Nationals star outfielder Bryce Harper was removed from Saturday night’s game after injuring his knee. Harper slipped on a wet first base, as seen in this video from Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area:

Obviously, it’s too early to determine the severity of Harper’s injury, but here’s hoping for the best. A lengthy absence would be devastating to not only the Nationals championship hopes, but also to the game as a whole.
