Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper apparently did lift this offseason, bro. Harper showed up to Nationals spring training in Orlando, Florida looking like he had just eaten nothing but an entire GNC store from October to February. The 21-year-old is coming off his second season in the bigs, where he hit .274 with 20 bombs in 118 games. Harper had been documenting his offseason fitness regimen on Twitter, but I don’t think anyone knew he would look like Hulk Hogan in his prime.
Also in the photo, Harper is toting around two boxes of girl scout cookies, Thin Mints and Samoas to be exact. Bet he crushed those in the clubhouse and washed it down with an entire gallon of whole milk. He also appears to be sporting a nice little shiner on his left eye. Maybe his training program included bar fighting randos. Wouldn’t put it past him. If I had traps like that, I’d go around looking for trouble 24/7.
