The move is retroactive to Saturday. Harper hurt his hand with a head-first slide into third base Friday night after hitting a third-inning, bases-loaded triple in Washingtons 11-1 victory. He stayed in the game for an inning before he was replaced. "Its part of baseball. You slide into the bag and sometimes you get your fingers," Harper said. "Its a bummer, but hopefully Ill be back soon." Harper will fly to Cleveland on Monday to see prominent hand specialist Thomas Graham for a second opinion. For now, his proscribed treatment is ice. "Hopefully 15 days go by and I can get back out there," Harper said. "Well see how I feel in 15." Harper joins starting catcher Wilson Ramos and starting thirrd baseman Ryan Zimmerman on the disabled list, both with hand injuries. . Ramos, hurt on opening day, had surgery on his left hand. Zimmerman broke his right thumb also sliding into a bag, on April 12. Also on the DL are starting pitcher Doug Fister (back), who is scheduled for a rehab start on Sunday, and reserve outfielder Scott Hairston (side). "Weve got a lot of off days in the next 15, so thats huge," Harper said. Harper went 2 for 2 and had a career-high four RBIs on Friday night, giving him nine for the season as he lifted his batting average to .289. He has only one home run in 83 at-bats. "Its frustrating," Harper said. "I want to be out there and be able to help my team win every single day." Steven Souza Jr. was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse to replace him on the roster but was not in the lineup Sunday. ' ' '
