Bryce Harper is expected to be sidelined for at least six weeks after he undergoes surgery on his fractured left thumb.

It’s a huge loss for the Phillies and the 2021 NL MVP, as he was off to a extremely hot start to the 2022 season.

Harper was batting .318/.385/.599 with 15 home runs, 49 runs scored, 48 RBI, and nine steals before the injury.

The Phillies are currently third in the NL East with a 39-35 record and are 6-4 in their last 10 games.

Harper suffered the injury after being hit by a pitch by Blake Snell on Saturday, which can be seen below.
