If Harper is placed on the DL, the stint will be retroactive to May 27, making him eligible to return June 11.

Harper was injured on May 13 when he had a violent collision with the right field wall at Dodger Stadium.

The Nationals called up right-hander Erik Davis, in order to place him on the 25-man roster, they must make a move. Harper seems to be the likely candidate to allow time for healing in his knee.

Davis,  had a 3.00 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 24 innings for Triple-A Syracuse this season.
