Here's Bryce's from-the-hospital pic, note the contrast between his thumbs up and his womp-womp-womp sad face. Poor guy. Looks like someone styled his hair before the pic, though, so he can be happy about that. Although, maybe it's just like that all the time when you're 21.
On the road to recovery..Everything went great and I'll be back soon! Thank you to all the fans for the support! pic.twitter.com/66Wn7sxHQ9— Bryce Harper (@Bharper3407) April 29, 2014
It's a good thing he didn't go the Matt Harvey route and flip thumb surgery the bird. Or maybe Harper's saving that one for the private collection. Or the six-month anniversary. Or his return to action.
Harper's injury is expected to keep him out until at least July. The Washington Nationals, preseason favorites in the NL East, have their work cut out for them until then. The rival Atlanta Braves are off to a hot start, and the Nats are in third place at 14-12.
