SAN DIEGO – Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper broke his left toe after hitting a 97-mph fastball from Blake Snell in the fourth inning against the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.
The team announced that the current NL MVP has been ruled out due to injury and will be out indefinitely. He will do the next evaluation in a few more days.
Harper checked his swing as he moved inland from the snail and towards his shoulder.
Harper immediately collapsed on the floor and put his hand on his knee as the Phyllis trainer approached him in pain.
As Harper was halfway to Philadelphia’s dugout, he began to shout angrily at Snell and Padres moved his injured hand toward the starting pitcher. Snell finally yelled something back at Harper. Many fans in Petco Park shouted at Harper Snell several seconds later.
Harper then looked cold and told Snell, “I know, I know,” knowing that the pitcher was not hitting himself with the pitch.
Johann Camargo was hired to replace Harper, who had been working as a Phyllis-appointed hitter.
Harper hit 318 in 64 games this season with 15 home runs, 48 RBI and .984 OPS, and his right elbow prevented him from playing outfield since April 16 due to a small tear in the UCL. He tried to escape. Tommy John surgery end of season with platelet-rich plasma injection and rest.
