  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Continues power surge

    Harper went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run, double and an additional run during Saturday's 8-3 win over the Dodgers.

    Harper continued to roll Saturday, doubling and scoring in the first inning while connecting on a three-run homer in the fourth and tacking on a single in the eighth. Harper has 14 hits in his last six games and has upped his batting average from .241 to .305. He's now top five in both slugging and OPS and appears to have finally adjusted to an assignment as Philadelphia's designated hitter for the foreseeable future. He's expected to get Sunday off so he can get a PRP injection in his elbow.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Receives Sunday off, as expected

    Harper (elbow) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    The 29-year-old was scheduled to receive a PRP injection to alleviate the pain in his right elbow Sunday, so it's no surprise he's being held out of the lineup for the series finale in Los Angeles. Harper has been limited to serving as the designated hitter while playing through a small tear in his UCL for the past month, and he's not expected to resume playing the field until at least mid-June. The injury hasn't had any effect on his ability to hit, and he's currently riding a six-game hit streak during which he's gone 14-for-23 with three home runs, six doubles, eight RBI, eight runs and three stolen bases. Alec Bohm will serve as the designated hitter Sunday with Johan Camargo starting at the hot corner.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Homers, on base five times

    Harper went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two doubles, two walks, two runs and two RBI in a 12-10 victory over the Dodgers on Friday.

    Harper was the driving force behind Friday's power surge, doubling in the third and sixth, walking in the fourth and 10th and homering in the eighth for his fourth multi-hit game in his last five. The 29-year-old has been scorching over the past week-plus, going 15-for-32 with six doubles and four home runs to bump his slash line to .291/.350/.598.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Forced to remain at DH

    Tests on Harper's elbow revealed a small tear in his UCL, and he will not throw for four weeks, Alex Coffey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Harper has served exclusively as Philadelphia's designated hitter since April 17 and that will continue until at least the middle of June. The hope is that he will begin throwing at that time, and he'll also receive a PRP injection Sunday to help mitigate his pain. Though Harper will remain in the lineup most days, the team has announced he will be out Sunday against the Dodgers and perhaps Tuesday for the series opener against the Padres.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Homers, drives in three

    Harper went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and three RBI in Thursday's 9-7 victory versus the Dodgers.

    It was announced Thursday that Harper has a small tear in his UCL and won't be able to play the field for the foreseeable future, but the injury didn't seem to affect him at the plate Thursday. The veteran put the Phillies on the board with a solo shot to right field in the first inning and drove in two more runs before the contest was over. Harper has enjoyed a strong start to the month of May, slashing .325/.349/.725 with four homers, four doubles, eight RBI and three stolen bases through 10 games.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: On base four times Monday

    Harper went 3-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Monday's 9-0 win over the Mariners.

    While his teammates supplied the thunder, Harper focused on setting the table on a night when seven different Phillies had multi-hit performances. For his part, Harper has delivered multiple hits in three of the last four games, boosting his slash line on the season to .259/.315/.509 with six homers, four steals, 19 RBI and 23 runs through 29 contests.

    Harper recorded an RBI double in the first inning to open the scoring. He then went yard in the fourth inning to record his fifth homer of the season.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Cracks fourth home run

    Harper went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Mets.

    After teammate Kyle Schwarber touched Max Scherzer up twice, Harper followed suit in the sixth, his second career homer off Scherzer and fourth long ball overall this season. Harper was serving as the designated hitter again, so clearly his elbow is still an issue, though it doesn't seem to be bothering him a whole lot at the plate.

He has stolen bases in consecutive games and has three swipes on the season. With his triple, the 29-year-old has recorded an extra-base hit in five of his last six games. After a slow start to the season, he has raised his OPS to .850.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Doubles, swipes bag

    Harper singled and stole second base in the first inning and doubled and scored in the sixth. It was the ninth consecutive game he served as the designated hitter as he continues to deal with an elbow injury.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Remaining at designated hitter

    Harper (elbow) played catch Tuesday for the first time in a week and will exclusively play at designated hitter until at least May 3, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    Harper hasn't played the outfield since April 16 due to the elbow injury, but he'll still be in the lineup every game as the designated hitter. There's been no dip in production due to the injury, as the 29-year-old has an .870 OPS with two home runs, three doubles, six RBI and six runs in eight games since being limited to to DH duties. Nick Castellanos will continue to man right field until Harper is cleared to play defense.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Crushes third homer

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Testing injured elbow Tuesday

    Harper is scheduled to test out his lingering right elbow injury during a pregame throwing session Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Harper has yet to miss a game this season on account of the injury, but he's served as the Phillies' designated hitter in each of the past seven games as a result of the elbow issue. Even if Harper checks out well during his throwing session Tuesday, manager Joe Girardi has already said that it's doubtful the 29-year-old will reclaim his usual duties in right field this week. Instead, Harper is expected to gradually increase his throwing distance over a period of several days before the Phillies feel comfortable using him on defense. Aside from uncharacteristically drawing zero walks over his last seven starts at DH, Harper has continued to perform well from a fantasy perspective with a .300 average, four extra-base hits (one home run and three doubles), four RBI and four runs over that stretch. Despite Harper's injury, fantasy managers shouldn't have much hesitation about keeping him active while he likely picks up six or seven starts at DH during the Phillies' seven-game week.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Doubles in victory

    Harper went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run scored in Friday's 4-2 win over the Brewers.

    Harper got the Phillies on the board early with his RBI double off of Freddy Peralta in the first inning. He later scored on Alec Bohm's eighth-inning single. The reigning NL MVP has racked up 11 RBI and seven extra-base hits through 54 at-bats. He's been serving as the DH lately due to an elbow issue.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Continues to serve as DH

    Harper is serving as the designated hitter and batting third in Friday's game against the Brewers.

    Harper hasn't played in the field since Saturday as he deals with a sore elbow, but he'll remain in the lineup as a designated hitter for a fifth consecutive game. He recently underwent an MRI on his right elbow that revealed a minor strain, and he won't be allowed to throw until Tuesday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. While the 29-year-old would've likely required a trip to the injured list before the universal designated hitter was introduced, he should be able to continue playing through the injury as the DH.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Playing through sore elbow

    Harper, who is batting second as the designated hitter Monday in Colorado, is nursing a sore right elbow and will serve as the Phillies' designated hitter during the three-game series against the Rockies, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old also served as the designated hitter Sunday against the Marlins, and it's unclear when he picked up the injury. Regardless, the injury doesn't affect Harper when batting, so for now he'll remain in the lineup without playing the field, which pushes Nick Castellanos to right field.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Homers and doubles

    Harper went 3-for-5 with a home run, double and two RBI in an 11-3 loss Sunday in Miami.

    Harper singled in the third, hit a solo home run in the fifth and added a RBI double in the seventh. After starting the season 1-for-14, the reigning National League Most Valuable Player is 7-for-23 with five extra-base hits over his last six contests. Sunday was the second time he appeared as the designated hitter this season. Nick Castellanos started in right field in his stead.

  • Phillies' Bryce Harper: Stuffs box score Saturday

    Harper went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI, three runs scored, two walks and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

    It's not a secret that this hasn't been a good start to the season for the star outfielder, though this was clearly his best all-around performance of the campaign to date. Harper has yet to record more than one hit in a single game through nine contests in 2022, but he has six RBI, two extra-base hits, three runs scored and a 4:3 BB:K over his last four games, so he seems to be trending in the right direction.
