Mark DeRosa Tweaks Shoulder After Bryce Harper High-Five

MLB

Washington Nationals utility man Mark DeRosa, who is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, aggravated his injury after Bryce Harper high-fived him after stealing home against the Philadelphia Phillies, according to the Washington Post.

“I don’t know if that set back the rehab or not,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. “But I said, ‘Why didn’t use your [right] hand?’ He said it was spur of the moment.”

DeRosa has not played since April 27 because of his oblique strain; he was hitting .081 (3-for-37) before the injury.
