Bryce Harper (and his hair) had surgery today

Bryce Harper underwent thumb surgery today that’s expected to keep him out for at least two months and not surprisingly the Nationals outfielder a) tweeted a post-surgery picture from his hospital bed, and b) had his hair done up for the occasion.

Calcaterra does the exact same thing whenever he goes to the dentist, so whatever.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
