Bryce Harper hit by pitch in foot, leaves game

After Bryce Harper got hit fuming Phillie Rhys Hoskins ‘had his back’ if he charged the mound | Marcus Hayes

- Philadelphia Phillies newest slugger, Bryce Harper, exited Friday's spring training game against the Toronto Blue Jays after he was hit in the right foot by a 96 miles per hour fastball in the 6th inning.

Kapler later said that Harper suffered from a right foot contusion - a bruise - and there was no immediate cause for concern, however further more comprehensive x-rays had been ordered.


Many in the crowd at Spectrum Field gasped when Harper was struck by a 96 miles per hour fastball from Toronto rookie Trent Thornton in the sixth inning. The 26-year-old slugger had made his spring training debut in a game with the Phillies last Saturday, and was playing right field for the first time in a Philly uniform Friday. He proceeded to limp off the field with the help of a member of the team's training staff.

Harper, who signed a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Phillies on February 28, entered Friday's game with three walks and a pair of strikeouts in limited spring training action. Harper is 0-4 with three walks and two strikeouts in eight plate appearances this Spring. "Not overly concerned right now", Kapler said.
