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.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
