Bryce Harper Ran Face-First Into Fence, Needed 11 Stitches
Harper was playing his first game after missing two with an absolutely disgusting ingrown toenail. The dude just can’t seem to stay healthy.
It could have been a lot worse, though.
Harper received 11 stitches under his chin but did not suffer a concussion, according to Nationals officials and Harper’s agent Scott Boras. Harper also underwent “precautionary” X-rays on his jammed left shoulder, Manager Davey Johnson said. He also bruised his neck and knee. The prevailing sentiment was that Harper would probably miss a game or two – even if he pleaded to stay in Monday night as blood dripped down his neck.
“Bryce is going to be all right,” Manager Davey Johnson said.
