Quote of the Day: Bryce Harper isn’t eating Del Taco every night


Which kind of sucks, because Del Taco is pretty good, dudes. Anyway, here’s what Harper had to say about his recent claim that he’s going to be huge coming into the season:

“It was kind of crazy that everyone was going berserk about my weight,” he said. “I was 235 coming in last year and it’s not sloppy weight. I’m not fat, I look pretty good. I don’t want to say that, but I’m not gonna lie. It’s not like I’m out eating McDonalds and Del Taco every night. I eat good. My mom fixes dinner every single night.”

Man, the kids is 21 years-old. Even if he was eating McDonald’s and Del Taco every night he’d still be in great shape because that’s how 21 year-olds usually roll. The jerks.  It’s when you hit your mid-30s that everything starts to go to hell.

Attempting to make a play on a bunt during Wednesday’s split-squad game against the Athletics, Brewers starter Wade Miley suffered a strained left groin, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Miley will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. On the afternoon, he gave up two runs on three hits and three walks with three strikeouts in four innings.

Miley, 31, signed a minor league contract with the Brewers last month. He had been having a solid spring until last Friday, when he served up seven runs in three innings against the Reds. The lefty had been battling for a spot in the Brewers’ rotation but this injury may take him out of the running.

Last season with the Orioles, Miley made 32 starts spanning 157 1/3 innings, posting a 5.61 ERA with a 142/93 K/BB ratio.

With the Jake Arrieta, Lance Lynn, and Alex Cobb signings recently, many wondered why the Brewers didn’t make a move. They may regret not having done more.

In related news, reliever Boone Logan also left with an injury on Wednesday, per Haudricourt. The Brewers should have more on both players’ statuses later.
