Philadelphia Super Emergency Eventually Loses MVP Finger Fractured in High Speed Ball
Bryce Harper (Philadelphia Phillies), the National League MVP and major league hitter last season, cannot play on the ground for a while.
Philadelphia announced on its official website on the 27th (Korea Standard Time) that “Harper was on the injured list because he fractured his left thumb.”
Harper was hit by a 97-mile fastball by opposing starter Blake Snell in the top of the fourth inning against the San Diego Padres the previous day and collapsed. He complained of pain by shouting, and was immediately replaced by Johann Camargo. And as a result of the close examination, it is expected that he will eventually break his bone and be away for a long time.
In an interview with MLB.com, he said, “I love playing with my teammates every day. But it’s a shame that I can’t. I will rehabilitate with a positive mind,” he said.
Harper continued his performance last season and was still considered an MVP candidate this season with a batting average of 0.318 15 home runs, 48 RBIs, 49 points, and OPS of 0.984. However, it has become virtually difficult to win the award for the second consecutive time due to an injury 안전놀이터
Meanwhile, Philadelphia called up outfielder Mickey Moniac, born in 1998. He had a batting average of 0.160, four hits and an RBI of 0.420 in the big leagues this season. In Triple-A, he batted .313 with 3 home runs and 0.957 OPS in 11 games.
