Bryce Harper injury: Nationals outfielder hurt after colliding with wall

Bryce Harper left Monday's game after a nasty collision with the right field wall.

Washington Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper was injured on Monday when he crashed into an outfield wall while chasing after a fly ball.

The play happened in the bottom of the fifth inning as Los Angeles' A.J. Ellis hit a fly ball to right field which sent Harper in pursuit. He was apparently unaware that he was approaching the wall and ended up crashing hard into it. Harper was tracking the ball well onto the warning track, before turning into the fence just before the collision.


He came up bleeding, according to Mark Zuckerman of CSN Washington and had to be removed from the game, although he was able to walk off the field under his own power. Washington center fielder Denard Span had to run down the ball in right field with Ellis ending up with a triple. Roger Bernadina came on to replace Harper in right field.
