07:00 AM ET 05.02 | On the heels of fears that Stephen Strasburg had some sort of arm injury, Bryce Harper left Wednesday night's game against the Braves in the sixth inning. [But] the Washington Nationals outfielder appears to have dodged a significant issue. Harper, who slammed his left side into the scoreboard in right field on Tuesday night trying to rob Tim Hudson of a home run, checked his swing in his at-bat in the sixth inning against left-hander Paul Maholm. He appeared to grimace after the swing. The Nationals diagnosed the 20-year-old with a contusion on his left side and manager Davey Johnson said he will be put on medication to help with his discomfort while also undergoing treatment on the area. It's unlikely that he will play on Thursday.

The real story is that a jilted Baseball Annie shot him in the side in a DC hotel. The tough as nails kid instructed her to seek comfort in Jesus before putting a bandaid on the gaping wound and going out to play the game.

That's a clown injury, bro.

Hmmm.......he's got a contusion....a bruise in other words. Sounds like serious stuff.

Rub some dirt on it. He'll be fine.

I thought his magic underwear was supposed to shield him from such things?

Hmmm, maybe I can make a few bucks promoting this as a way to lose weight...just need to put a clause in the fine print that weight loss caused by death still counts.

This seems to be a recurring theme.

You can't stop him. You can only contain him.
