Bryce Harper to hit in a cage today, to eat face soon

Bryce Harper hasn’t played a game since May 26, but he’s on the comeback trail:

No timetable, but no setbacks either, so presumably he’ll be ready to eat people’s faces soon.

No, really:

God, is this going to be an ongoing thing with the Nats now? I want them to lose anyway, but I’m way more interested in them losing now because if they win then “eating face” will truly be a thing then.

Here’s Harper sitting down for an exclusive interview with Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington:

KTAR News is reporting that Diamondbacks outfielder Yasmany Tomas was arrested on Thursday morning for driving faster than 100 MPH, according to the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He was charged with reckless driving and criminal speeding.

The maximum sentence for a criminal speeding charge is up to 30 days in jail and a fine up to $500. It is considered a Class 3 misdemeanor. Tomas may also have his license suspended.

A Diamondbacks spokesperson said, “We are very disappointed to learn of this news. We are still gathering facts, and will refrain from further comment at this time as this is a pending legal matter.”

Tomas, 27, signed a six-year, $68.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks in December 2014 as an amateur free agent out of Cuba. He has mostly disappointed, owning a .769 OPS while playing subpar defense in the outfield as well as at third base, where the club briefly tried him. He battled a groin injury for most of the past season and ultimately underwent core muscle surgery in August.
