Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper is set to make his 2023 debut on Tuesday night against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
MLB Network released a hype video for his return, as per MLB Network on twitter.
Harper’s hope was that he would be back in the Phillies lineup to play against the Los Angeles Dodgers, in L.A., in the first week of May.
“I kind of looked at this series in the offseason, to put my head where I needed to be,” Harper said. “Understanding that I need to take it one day at a time, understanding that we can have setbacks even if you feel great. But I wanted … to work toward something.”
The Phillies were preparing for Harper to return in early July. Getting him back this early, is a really big boost to the team.
