Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper reveals how his hair looks good and a Dusty Baker update. Today in the Daily Washingtonian.

Good morning, Washington Nationals fans!

Today is Thursday, April 12, 2018.

The Nats are back to .500 following a tough 5-3 loss to the Atlanta Braves and are 4.5 games behind the white-hot New York Mets.

Off to the best start in their franchise history, the Amazin’s are 10-1 following a sweep of the Marlins. Sometimes, all you can do is tip your cap.

After the Mets took three here in Washington, the Nats bounced back to take two of three against Atlanta. But, as with last year, injuries are piling up.

Adam Eaton‘s bruised ankle is a concern. For the second straight year, he heads to the disabled list following his ACL tear versus New York. Moises Sierra grabs his roster spot.

Although Matt Wieters came off the disabled list yesterday, Jhonatan Solano went on over the weekend. Hopefully, Daniel Murphy can start his rehab soon as his bat is missed.

Remember, it has been nearly a year since the full Nats lineup started a game. As they hope to catch the Mets, Washington must stay healthy. New York, by the way, lost catcher Travis d’Arnaud to a UCL tear. He expects to undergo Tommy John surgery.

Enough with the injuries, you want to see Bryce Harper with two hairdryers:

For those of us lucky enough to have siblings, you know they take great pleasure embarrassing us by sharing details we want under wraps. Bryan Harper fits the role of pesky brother perfectly with a sneaky video of brother Bryce using two hairdryers on his well-coiffed hair.

Oh, to have enough hair to use one.

The Undefeated on Dusty Baker

Rhiannon Walker writes a sweet profile on what Dusty Baker is up too since his departure from the Nats. Although he misses managing, you can tell Baker is having a good time relaxing and enjoying time with his family. On the West Coast, he watches his son Darren play baseball at Cal and is an adviser for the San Francisco Giants.

A must read.

Call to the Pen on Victor Robles and Juan Soto

Chuck Johnson takes a closer look at Victor Robles‘ injury Monday in Rochester and gives a good profile of Juan Soto. Soto’s offense projects higher than Robles. Amazing when you consider how strong Robles is.
