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:

John Axford has a small break in his fibula

Dodgers reliever John Axford was deemed “unavailable” before last night’s game against the Giants. After the game it was revealed that he will miss up to three weeks due to a break in the tip of his fibula he suffered when he was hit by a comebacker on Sunday. It’s being characterized as a “crack.”

As if the Dodgers need more injuries and/or maladies, especially to their beleaguered bullpen.

Axford was acquired by L.A. at the trade deadline and, with Kenley Jansen out indefinitely, it was thought that he could get some opportunities to close. Now that’s out the window at least into September, it seems.
