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

Harper reached the agreement Wednesday with Major League Baseball and began serving the suspension immediately.

He did not issue a statement and was not in the Nationals clubhouse before Wednesday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park.

“Very happy,” Nationals manager Dusty Baker said when asked his reaction to Harper’s suspension being reduced. “I’m not happy that it was three, but three’s better than four. He’ll miss this game tonight and then he’ll miss the first two days of the Oakland series and hopefully he’ll be ready to play on Sunday.”

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.

Drug test suspensions

Baltimore Orioles infielder Robert Andino was suspended for 50 games under baseball’s minor-league drug program following a positive test for amphetamine, a banned stimulant.

The suspension was announced Wednesday by the commissioner’s office along with 72-game bans for Orioles outfielder Johnny Dixon and Arizona pitcher Bryan Valdez, who both tested positive for metabolites of Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing substance.

Andino, 33, is a veteran of 10 major-league seasons, including 2009-12 with Baltimore at the major league level. He also has played for the Marlins (2005-08, 2016) and Seattle (2013).

Turner at practice

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner took batting practice Wednesday and continues to increase his level of activity as he recovers from a hamstring strain.

But manager Dave Roberts cast doubt on either Turner or outfielder Joc Pederson (concussion) returning from the disabled list for next week’s series against Washington.

“I don’t see it,” Roberts said.

Trout has surgery

Mike Trout had successful surgery on his injured left thumb Wednesday, and the Los Angeles Angels slugger is likely to be out for at least six weeks.

“We’re going to count the days, and we’re excited that everything went well,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

Trout, who injured his hand sliding headfirst into second base in Miami on Sunday, is going on the disabled list for the first time in his career.

Stanton skips game

Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was being held out of the lineup against Philadelphia as a precaution Wednesday while he recovers from mild hamstring cramping. He was expected to start Thursday.
