Bryce Harper injured his left hand after being jammed by a pitch during the Nationals' game Friday.

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) - Bryce Harper has been scratched from the Washington Nationals' lineup because of swelling in his left hand.

Harper was scheduled to bat third and play left field against the New York Mets on Saturday, but manager Davey Johnson told Harper in the morning that he would not be playing.

Harper was jammed on a pitch by Drew Smyly of the Detroit Tigers on Friday, and Johnson took him out of the game after two at-bats.

Johnson says he's not concerned about the swelling and expects Harper to be back in the lineup Sunday when the Nationals host the Miami Marlins.
