The Phillies will receive reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper lend a hand from the injured checklist for Friday evening’s sport against the Pirates, intervening time supervisor Resolve Thomson said on Thursday.
Harper, out since breaking his left thumb on June 25, has been on a torrid prance at some level of his rehab assignment at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, going 5-for-8 with two doubles, two homers, two walks and 6 RBIs in a pair of games. Even supposing Harper modified into as soon as eligible to be activated from the 60-day IL on Thursday, he’s going to know the day to figure out before returning to the Phils.
Harper will DH as soon as he returns and could well no longer play correct field unless 2023 thanks to a torn UCL in his correct elbow.
That is OK for now. The Phillies are 2nd within the NL Wild Card prance. They need his bat.
Thomson joked that he texted Harper on Wednesday morning and said, “Take into myth, your timing looks a small bit off. But retain working at it.”
