METEED EMERGENCY STATUS: The Washington Nationals will be without outfielder Bryce Harper for the remainder of the season.
Harper suffered a broken left wrist in the ninth inning of a game against the Minnesota Twins on Friday.
Harper was batting third when the pitch struck him in the hand, and he had to be helped off the field.
Harper’s status is not expected to change until Monday, when the Nationals host the Detroit Tigers at Nationals Park.
The team will play its next two games in Philadelphia, before facing the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Stadium.
The Nationals will play a five-game series against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday, Oct. 5, before hosting the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Oct 9.
Washington has been without a starting pitcher since July 6.
On Sunday, right-hander Braden Shipley (12-7) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks in two innings.
RHP Max Scherzer (4-6) allowed four runs on five hits and four walks in seven innings.
He is scheduled to return to the lineup Tuesday, when he will be the Nationals’ fourth starter.
