Bryce Harper suffered a fractured thumb and left for Phyllis indefinitely.

Billy’s condition worsened Saturday night when Price Harbor suffered a fractured left thumb and left indefinitely.

Harper was hit in the thumb by a crack shot by Blake Snell at 97 mph in the fourth inning in San Diego. He immediately fell to the ground, grabbed his left arm and throbbed in pain. Apparently frustrated, Harper said something to Snell, who apologized and replied that he had not done it on purpose. Harper yelled back to Snell that he knew it wasn’t intentional.

He will be re-evaluated in the coming days to determine the path to recovery and whether surgery is needed.

Harper is irreplaceable like any other player in the game of baseball. The Billies tasted it earlier this week when they combined for five runs in three games they missed with a blaster. Harper was once again one of the best hitters in baseball, scoring 320 / .385 / .602 in Saturday’s game with 21 doubles, 15 homers and 48 RBI despite missing nine games. He has six more basic wins than any of the majors since last year’s All-Star break.

“It’s hard, the year he won, he’s the person,” Kyle Schwartz said in the post-broadcast game. “It’s a tough blow, but we have to get over it. It’s obviously tough, but I think we can tackle that kind of blow at this milk club. We have a lot of good players, we have to do it. If the comrades’ numbers are called, we must answer at. “

This is another attempt but a useful year for the ruling MVP. He has not been able to throw or play on the field since the second week of the season due to a small tear in his UCL. He is scheduled to have his elbow re-examined next week. He missed the time because he had a blister infection on his hand earlier this week.

The end of the game on Saturday, a 4-2 Billies win, There was almost a afterthought in light of Harper’s injury. Phils will need several hitters, especially Nick Castellanos, which he did not expect at this point. They are without Jean Sekura, who broke his finger in the racing attempt until early September and was out.

The trading deadline is slightly longer than five weeks, and the Billies can set their sights on an outfielder or DH. Meanwhile, Mickey Monique is returning to the big leagues.
