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

  • Philadelphia Phillies Bryce Harper swings at a pitch from Toronto Blue Jays Matt Shoemaker during the first inning of a spring training baseball game Saturday

For the Phillies, it was a scare.

In the fifth inning of Friday afternoon's Grapefruit League tilt, Toronto Blue Jays right-hander Trent Thornton hit Bryce Harper on the right ankle with a 96 miles per hour fastball. Harper fell to the ground in pain before slowly limping off the diamond and making his way to the dugout.

In the sixth inning, Harper took a 96 miles per hour fastball off the right ankle from right-hander Trent Thornton. Shane Robinson, a non-roster invitee to Spring Training, pinch-ran for Harper and ultimately replaced him in right field. Harper hollered at the pitcher before walking to the dugout with a limp.

Recently signed to a record $330 million, 13-year contract, Harper was playing his fourth exhibition for Philadelphia. The right-fielder was supposed to play in Spring Training games on Saturday and Sunday this weekend, but that seems unlikely now. Phillies Manager Gabe Kapler says the team has no major concerns about the injury.
