  • Bryce Harper Hopes To Return In September

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (elbow, thumb) gave a loose timetable for his return on Thursday. "We're still on the same timeline of September-ish and come back when I'm ready and able to come back," Harper said. It's not much of an update, but before Thursday, he had refused to put any sort of potential timetable on his return from a fractured thumb that required surgery in late June. The 29-year-old had the pins removed from his left thumb on Monday and will begin ramping up his baseball activities. Harper will likely need to go on a minor league rehab assignment at some point as well, so fantasy managers need to remain patient. He's been great when on the field in 2022, hitting .318/.385/.599 with a .985 OPS, 15 home runs, 48 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 242 at-bats.

  • Bryce Harper Resumes Throwing Program

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (elbow, thumb), who had the pins removed from his surgically repaired left thumb on Monday, has begun a throwing program, interim manager Rob Thomson said on Wednesday. Harper is not only attempting to return again this season, but also perhaps play right field. Thomson said Harper has taken swings without hitting a ball, has done a few swings off a tee and played light catch from around 55 to 60 feet. Harper was relegated to a full-time designated hitter role in mid-April until he broke his thumb on June 25. Fantasy managers could care less if Harper returns to right field, but he needs to remain stashed in all fantasy leagues. Despite his elbow injury, Harper was hitting a cool .318/.385/.599 with a .985 OPS, 15 home runs, 48 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine stolen bases before breaking his thumb.

  • Bryce Harper Has Pins Removed From Thumb

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (thumb) had the pins removed from his thumb on Monday and will now be ready to begin to ramp up activities in the near future. Harper has been on the injured list since fracturing his thumb near the end of June when he was hit by a pitch. He is still likely several weeks away from being able to return to the Phillies, but the pins coming out on Monday are at least a step in the right direction. Harper is hitting .318 with 15 homers, 49 runs, 48 RBI, and nine steals in 2022.

  • Bryce Harper Not Ready To Have Pins Removed

    Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper (thumb) didn't have the pins removed from his fractured left thumb on Monday, but that could happen next week. He hasn't suffered a setback of any sort, but he just isn't quite ready to have his pins removed. Harper will meet with his surgeon again next Monday and will hopefully be cleared to have his pins removed. The 29-year-old slugger will still have at least several weeks before he might come off the injured list after he has his pins removed, so fantasy managers must remain patient and keep him stashed in fantasy. Last year's National League MVP had also been playing through a right elbow injury, but it hadn't slowed down his production at the plate, as he was hitting .318/.385/.599 with a .985 OPS, 15 home runs, 48 RBI, 49 runs scored and nine stolen bases at the time of his injury.
