Bryce Harper hit a long home run to right field in his second rehab game with Single-A Potomac on Wednesday night, but also fouled a ball off his right foot. 

Harper, who played five innings as the designated hitter, finished his at-bat after fouling the ball off his foot but manager Davey Johnson indicated that Harper was pulled after that at-bat, despite a plan for him to play six innings, but he did not expect the foul ball to cause any significant issue.

The Nationals are hopeful that Harper will be ready to rejoin the team by Monday when they open a homestand against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Harper could play nine innings on Thursday night, which would be the most he has played since May 26.
