After writhing in pain on the ground for a couple of minutes, Harper was helped off the field with assistance from trainer Paul Lessard and hitting coach Rick Schu. It still was raining when Harper's injury happened in a game that ended at 1:17 a.m. Sunday. His status will be updated when the team makes a formal announcement as to the exact nature of the injury. The base may have been slippery following a three-hour rain delay.
