Nationals manager Matt Williams said Harper was at the Nationals' complex earlier in the day, getting ready to play against the New York Mets. ''He came in, did a little bit of light swinging in the cage and he's still not feeling good, so we sent him home. I think he'll be OK to go'' on Friday, Williams said.
