Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper will undergo elbow surgery on Nov. 23, president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told reporters on Wednesday.
Harper suffered a UCL tear in May. As a result, he was limited to being the designated hitter. Harper also suffered a broken thumb that kept him out for a good chunk of the Phillies regular season.
Harper had a .286 batting average with 18 home runs and 65 RBIs in 99 games. His postseason numbers were prolific. He hit 6 home runs, with 13 RBIs and a .349 batting average.
It remains unknown whether Harper will have Tommy John surgery, and how long he’ll be sidelined in 2023.
