The Washington Nationals star outfielder missed Friday’s 7-3 win over the Chicago Cubs to have a troublesome ingrown toenail removed from his right foot.
The issue was noticed earlier in the week and Harper had his nail clipped, but the pain persisted. The Washington Post says the area that was not previously seen was removed in the minor procedure on Friday. They also report that Harper is on medication for an infection that emerged.
All this for an ingrown toenail, right? Well, after you see the picture Harper tweeted of the ingrown toenail, you’ll understand where all the problems came from. Take a look:

Is that nasty or what? Harper supposedly will only miss one game to recover. He is batting .302/.383/.629 with 10 home runs through 33 games this season.Google+
