Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper will be out of the starting lineup with a left hand injury for Saturday’s game against the San Diego Padres, but available to pinch-hit.
Brooks Laich, who missed the vast majority of the Caps’ regular season in 2012-13, and all of the playoffs, reported to training camp with another, very minor, unrelated injury, and he’s already “sick and tired of talking about” it, as he told the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan on Wednesday.
Bradley Beal is still recovering from his ankle injury that caused him to miss the tail end of the Wizards 2012-13 season, and admits he probably rushed back “a little too early,” which he says will probably keep him from full participation with Team USA.
The Nationals said Saturday an MRI showed a slight strain in Stephen Strasburg’s lat instead of his oblique, and the team is hoping the right-hander can avoid the disabled list.
Anthony first hurt his left shoulder on April 14 against the Pacers. Now it seems he played the entire playoff run — 12 games — with a partially torn labrum.
The cause of the accident is unknown, but salt trucks have been requested.
Skins TE Chris Cooley says he’s faster than ever and Fred Davis could be a pro bowler.
Redskins Tight End Chris Cooley joined The Sports Junkies to talk about the starting quarterback battle and his knee injury.
TE Chris Cooley told the Junkies he’ll be out the entire preseason while bruising in his heals.
Cooley says that sitting out is precautionary and that if tonight’s game was Week 1 against the Giants, he’d be in the game.
