Bryce Harper takes batting practice before Nationals’ game

Bryce Harper

Bryce Harper on Sunday took batting practice for the first time since hurting his knee last month.

The Washington Nationals outfielder was seen taking swings at Nationals Park before his team’s game against the Dodgers later that night.

The Washington Post’s Jorge Castillo says Harper looked good and showed some of his typical power.

Harper seems to be getting closer to making a return. He did some light running during the week, and then Sunday he also ran to first for the first time since his injury.

Harper also said he hoped to be ready for the playoffs.

Nationals GM Mike Rizzo said something similar during the week, sharing that Washington was optimistic that Harper would be able to return for the postseason.

Harper has been out since Aug. 12. He’s batting .326 with 27 doubles and 29 home runs this season.
