NEW YORK — Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper agreed Wednesday to drop his appeal of a four-game suspension and will have one game shaved from the punishment.

The punishment stemmed from a bench-clearing brawl on Monday after Harper was hit by a 98 mph fastball from Giants reliever Hunter Strickland. There’s no word on Strickland, who received a six-game suspension and also had planned to appeal.

The bad blood between the two stemmed from a pair of home runs Harper hit off Strickland in the 2014 playoffs.

ANGELS: Mike Trout had surgery on his injured left thumb and is likely to be out for at least six weeks.

The two-time AL MVP is off to another spectacular start to the season, batting .337 with 16 homers and 36 RBI.

ORIOLES: Catcher Welington Castillo went on the 10-day disabled list with a testicular injury.

Castillo spent time in the emergency room Tuesday night after being hurt in the ninth inning of an 8-3 loss to the New York Yankees.

The freak injury occurred when a pitch that hit New York’s Didi Gregorius ricocheted downward and struck Castillo between the legs.

Castillo is batting .317 with four homers and 17 RBI.
