MLB Injury News:
Soon after Bryce Harper’s collision with the outfield wall,
the Washington Nationals said there were no concerns of a concussion. However,
Harper experienced nausea yesterday, keeping him out of the lineup. Because he’s
dealing with this sickness, he is likely to continue to be tested for a concussion,
according to Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post.
Harper received a concussion test Monday night and passed.
He still felt “kind of crappy” yesterday, but doesn’t feel he’s dealing with a
“I feel kind of crappy today,” Harper said. “I feel a little
carsick, I guess you could say, like the feeling of that. I don’t have a
concussion or anything like that, which is very pleasant to hear.”
Considering nausea is one of the signs of a concussion, this
will likely cause the Nationals to continue to monitor Harper. Manager Davey
Johnson told reporters that the outfielder will “probably” undergo more tests
if the nausea continues. Teams now have to follow a specific protocol when
concussion or a potential concussion is involved.

It's fairly well documented that Senator Harry Reid -- who shares the home state of Nevada with Bryce Harper -- is a big Bryce Harper fan. Exhibit A: Reid invoked Harper's "That's a clown question, bro" line at a press conference last summer.

I know I’m a little late to the game here talking about Bryce Harper and his ingrown toenail. Honestly, I wasn’t going to say anything about it. But for some reason I was thinking about Bull Durham and what Crash Davis would have to say to Harper.
