Bryce Harper Injury: Phillies Star Leave Game After Getting Hit By Pitch

Share

This is not a sight you want to see from the Phillies' $330 million man. Bryce Harper left the Phillies' spring training game Friday against the Toronto Blue Jays in the sixth inning after taking a 96 miles per hour fastball to his right ankle.

Blue Jays pitcher Trent Thornton hit Bryce Harper's right foot with a 96-mph pitch in the bottom of the sixth inning. "We're confident and we understand we have a good club on the field and we're confident that Bryce is going to be all right". The 26-year-old slugger had made his spring training debut in a game with the Phillies last Saturday, and was playing right field for the first time in a Philly uniform Friday. He limped off the field and was replaced by pinch runner Shane Robinson.

Harper agreed to a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Phillies just over two weeks ago. Phillies Manager Gabe Kapler says the team has no major concerns about the injury. He is 0 for 5 in 10 plate appearances.
