Washington Nationals left fielder Bryce Harper is day-to-day after leaving Monday's game against the Atlanta Braves after feeling light-headed.

Harper was replaced by Nate Schierholtz in the top of the fourth inning after going 0-for-1 in the game. 

Manager Matt Williams said that an illness has been going around the clubhouse recently. The Nationals won the game 4-2. 

"He was a little lightheaded, not feeling great. We'll see how he is tomorrow," Williams said, according to MLB.com. "He may have a little bit of the gunk that everybody else has had."

Harper is hitting .270 with 13 homers and 32 RBI in 90 games this season. The Nationals have an 11 1/2-game lead over Atlanta in the National League East and can clinch the division with a victory Tuesday over the Braves.
