Phillies superstar and the reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper could return to the Phillies lineup as early as tonight. He has only played two games on his minor-league rehab assignment, but he sure seems ready to return to the majors. On Tuesday, Harper went 2 for 3 with two walks, two home runs and four RBI’s, for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. On Wednesday, he was 3 for 5 with two doubles and two RBI’s and he walked it off.
Harper was originally expected to return on Monday in Arizona, but it appears that he is locked in and ready to step back in the Phillies starting lineup.
The Phillies play at home tonight against the Reds and that isn’t too far away from Lehigh Valley. Harper could be activated for the game tonight. Maybe the Phillies will wait until Friday, when they host the Pirates, starting a three-game series.
Getting Bryce Harper back in the lineup will be a big boost for the red-hot Phillies.
