Bryce Harper’s T-shirt wants you to know Harper is PED free.
The T-shirt, which said “PED FREE” in block letters, covered Harper’s frame the day before the first full-squad workout for the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.
Harper told reporters he was ready for his third major league season after healing from offseason surgery on his left knee.
“We worked hard all offseason and I worked my tail off to get to this point,” Harper told the Washington Post. “I feel like I’m where I need to be. I’m excited to start games and feel how I slide and run, hit in games. Just that feel on there will help me pass some things and I feel good about it.”
The T-shirt stole the show during the Las Vegan’s interview, but Harper told Washington Post reporter Adam Kilgore the wording “wasn’t meant as any kind of message.”
