Nationals right fielder Bryce Harper sat out Friday and Saturday after undergoing a procedure to remove an ingrown toenail from his right foot, but he’s back in action for Sunday’s series finale against the Cubs.
Harper felt some lingering discomfort in his toe while taking batting practice on Saturday afternoon, but he’s a trouper and it’s not like you can aggravate an ingrown toenail that has already been removed.
Harper, 20, is sporting a .302/.383/.629 batting line, 10 home runs and 21 RBI in 33 games this season. He has also scored 22 runs. The Nationals entered play Sunday with a 20-16 record — one game back of the Braves in the NL East standings.
