Bryce Harper’s status for the second game of tonight’s doubleheader remains questionable after the rookie fouled a ball off his left ankle in the first game. An MRI taken on Harper’s ankle came back clean, though, so Harper could potentially play if necessary. 

He was not, however, in the starting lineup — the first time that has happened since June 10 in Boston. Neither was catcher Jesus Flores, who caught Game One and was pulled from Friday night’s contest with a stiff lower back.


Here are all the details on Harper’s injury. 

And here’s the quick recap from Game 1.
