Nationals' Harper to rest sore hip

NEW YORK — Bryce Harper will be out of the Nationals' lineup for at least two more days due to a sore left hip.

Harper was examined by team doctors in Washington, and manager Davey Johnson said Monday that tests showed inflammation but no structural damage. The outfielder was given oral medication and isn't expected back until at least Wednesday.

Johnson said he hopes Harper can play after that, but it will depend how he feels.

Harper, 20, the NL rookie of the year last season, was scratched Saturday in Miami and hasn't played since.

DODGERS, CUBAN NEAR DEAL: Cuban INF Alexander Guerrero is close to signing a $32 million contract with the Dodgers, reported. Guerrero, 26, is considered one of Cuba's best all-around players.

MONTREAL SERIES: The Blue Jays and Mets will play two games next spring training at Montreal's Olympic Stadium. They will be the first games there since the Expos moved to Washington after the 2004 season.

McCOURT DIVORCE: A judge denied a motion by former Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt to throw out a $131 million divorce settlement with ex-owner Frank McCourt, which she argued was invalid because she believes she was misled about the value of the team that was later sold for $2 billion.

ANGELS: CF Peter Bourjos is scheduled to have surgery today on his fractured right wrist and will miss the rest of the season.

MARINERS: Ace RHP Felix Hernandez, who missed his scheduled start Sunday against the Rays because of back stiffness, will not make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Astros.

PIRATES: RHP Charlie Morton returned to Pittsburgh for medical attention a day after injuring his left foot, and the team isn't sure when he'll pitch again.
