Washington Nationals phenom outfielder, Bryce Harper, left early in last night's blowout (9-2) over the Miami Marlins with "a tight left quad that isn’t expected to keep him out of the lineup on Tuesday," writes James Wagner of The Washington Post.

Nationals right-hander Doug Fister took the next step in his rehabilitation process Monday afternoon at Marlins Park. Fister, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain, threw 50 pitches -- including his entire repertoire -- during a two-inning bullpen session.
