Report: Harper to resume baseball activities

The SportsXchange

Injured Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is set to resume baseball activities early next week, according to the Washington Post.

Harper has been out with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb since April 26.

Harper is scheduled to take light swings and play catch next week.

It is not known when Harper will take batting practice and there is no timetable on his return to the lineup. Initially, he was expected to miss six to eight weeks after having surgery. Earlier this month, manager Matt Williams said Harper could return during the first week of July.

The 21-year-old is batting .289 with one home run and nine RBIs in 22 games this season.
