Bryce Aron Max Harper is an American professional baseball right fielder and designated hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball. He played in MLB for the Washington Nationals from 2012 through 2018. He has been touted as a “five-tool player”.
How long Bryce Harper injury will keep him out?
Phillies lose Bryce Harper indefinitely with broken left thumb because Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper suffered an injury by a broken left thumb when he was struck by a pitch from the San Diego Padres’ Blake Snell on Saturday night, an injury that might put him out of the field for some time.
Snell apologized but even in the obvious pain and upset, Harper went on to tell Snell he knows he didn’t hit him intentionally and then he walked off the field. What a legend and a sportsman spirit.
“Things happen for a reason,” Harper told reporters, after the game. “Everybody says that. This reason sucks right now, but at the same time, it is what it is. I’ve got to be positive. I’ve got to be positive for the guys in here. I know they’ll pick up the slack. I’m just really bummed for the organization, the guys, the city of Philadelphia, the fans. I love running out there and playing every day. Definitely bummed.”
“I’ve never had a hand injury like this,” Harper told reporters as he stood at his locker after the game, wearing a splint on his thumb. “Never broken anything in my life. This is new to me, so I’m just going to go day by day, see kind of where we’re at and see the specialist in Philly. And if I do need to see another specialist somewhere, then I will.”
