Bryce Harper Fractures Left Thumb

According to the Phillies, Harper has a fractured left thumb

More tests will be necessary before determining an exact rehabilitation schedule

but Harper looks to be sidelined for several months, and his 2022 season may very well be in jeopardy.

Bryce Harper left Saturday's game in the fourth inning after being struck by a fastball from Blake Snell in the left hand.

10:54 PM The current NL MVP had to immediately duck to escape Snell's up-and-in pitch,

but the ball nonetheless struck Harper's hand and left him clearly in pain.

As the Phillies' designated hitter, Johan Camargo replaced Harper on the basepaths and in the lineup.
