    Updated at 1:05 p.m. The Nationals promoted top prospect Bryce Harper to Class AA Harrisburg today, a move that had been anticipated for some time but still carried some element of surprise given the organization’s decision to have the 18-year-old outfielder skip one level of its farm system.

    Associated Press photo Jason Marquis gave up seven runs in only 1 1/3 innings. The left fielder and cleanup hitter is already banged-up, dealing with a nagging Achilles’ tendon strain.

    US Presswire photo Tyler Clippard earned his first career All-Star selection.

    Jul 2, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    The Nationals will need to call up a spot starter for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, and Ross Detwiler is the likely choice. Manager Davey Johnson acknowledged the club will promote someone from its farm system instead of asking left-hander Tom Gorzelanny to return on short rest.
