Harper will begin serving that suspension on Wednesday evening, and will therefore be eligible to return Sunday against the Athletics. Had Harper not charged the mound, the argument went, Strickland would have gotten away with firing a 98-mph projectile at one of the game's best players - though, of course, a less-talented target would not make the act any less troublesome. He was merely reacting in the heat of the moment.

"You can't really worry about what Major League Baseball is going to do because you don't really know", Harper said Tuesday. "But after he did it, I was like, OK, that was intentional".

"I know Bruce Bochy didn't give the command and order", Baker said before Tuesday night's game.

Joe Torre, MLB's chief baseball officer, has typically suspended batters four or five games for charging the mound.

Harper's suspension, delayed while he appealed, will take effect Wednesday night, when the teams meet at 10:15 p.m. ET in San Francisco. But when one considers Strickland's normal workload - at most, he probably would pitch in three or four of those six games - compared with Harper's, the relative severity flips.

The only reminder of the fight came when Harper was booed by the AT&T Park crowd every at-bat.

Washington led 2-0 with two outs in the eighth and none on when Strickland drilled Harper on the first pitch — a 98 miles per hour fastball. He's hitting.133 (6-for-45) with a.493 OPS in his last 12 games, a streak that has seen his batting average plummet from.388 to.322 and his OPS from 1.271 to 1.076.

The Nationals won Monday's game, 3-0. They'll have only three true outfielders on the roster (Jayson Werth, Michael A. Taylor and Brian Goodwin) but Adam Lind and Wilmer Difo could play the outfield if necessary.
