MLB notebook: Nats' Harper unsure about rehab timeline

| Saturday, June 22, 2013, 10:09 p.m.

Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is not convinced he can begin a rehab assignment as quickly as his manager believes.

Davey Johnson had said he expects Harper to start a rehab stint Tuesday at Class A Potomac. Harper, who has been sidelined since May 26 with left knee bursitis, said he thought he needed an extra day or two.

“It just depends how I feel today and tomorrow,” Harper said. “I'm thinking Wednesday or Thursday, maybe.”

Buchholz remains out

Boston's Clay Buchholz (neck) is not expected to start Tuesday, and there's no timetable for when the unbeaten right-hander might be ready to return.

Jeter back in Bronx

Derek Jeter is back at Yankee Stadium, though he's still not sure when he'll be playing there next.

The New York captain relocated his rehab from Tampa, Fla., to the Bronx as he recovers from his broken left ankle.

Padres put Richard on DL

The Padres placed starting pitcher Clayton Richard on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder strain, one day after he lasted two pitches due to pain.

Extra bases

The Cardinals promoted Joe Kelly to the starting rotation and sent down struggling lefty Tyler Lyons. … Former general manager John Hart and three-time All-Star second baseman Carlos Baerga were inducted into the Indians Hall of Fame.
