Bryce Harper’s elbow to be evaluated on Monday

Written by Tony Ghaul

Dave Dombrowski said at the GM Meetings that Bryce Harper will have his torn UCL evaluated on Monday. Could be anything from no surgery, which seems unlikely, to Tommy John surgery to something in between. Different timetables for everything, of course, as per Todd Zolecki.

The Philadelphia Phillies must be deliberate With Bryce Harper this offseason. Harper and the Phillies have a decision to make after his evaluation on Monday regarding his elbow, and it must be done soon.

Harper had a legendary postseason. His epic home runs, including the two-run shot off Robert Suarez in the National League Championship Series against the San Diego Padres, will be etched in the minds of Philadelphia Phillies fans forever.

Harper did all he could to help the Phillies win. It was a near miraculous experience considering the partially torn UCL in his right elbow.

It’s unclear what will transpire from here. Hopefully, we will know the off-season plan for him next week.
