Bryce Harper homers in first at bat of rehab assignment

Written by Tony Ghaul

Bryce Harper in his first plate appearance in two months goes deep for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Facing left-hander Jared Shuster, the Braves’ first-round pick in 2020, Harper got an up-and-in pitch and demolished it to right-center field.

If all goes well, Harper is set to return to the Phillies lineup at the beginning on next week in Arizona. They can definitely use his bat back in starting lineup.
