Bryce Harper (31, Philadelphia Phillies), who was initially expected to return only in the second half, returned from the injured list. It’s surprisingly fast.
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, reported that Harper, who underwent an elbow ligament joint surgery (Tommy John surgery) on the 3rd (Korean time), returned from the injured list.
Harper underwent Tommy John surgery last November. Return after only 6 months. Also, as already announced, Harper will start as the designated hitter three times in the away game against the Los Angeles Dodgers on the 3rd.
The recovery period for a fielder from Tommy John surgery is shorter than for a pitcher. But in Harper’s case, it’s faster than ever before. Of course, this is the final permission of the club and medical staff.
Harper also trained defensively during the rehabilitation process. In other words, it is expected that he will appear as a designated hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers on this day, but will soon be able to see him playing defense.토토사이트
Harper, who is in his 12th year in the major leagues, recorded a batting average of 0.286, 18 home runs and 65 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of 0.364 and an OPS of 0.877 in 99 games last year.
In addition, in five games of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) against the San Diego Padres, he was named the MVP with a batting average of 0.400 and two homers and an OPS of 1.250.
All of these results were obtained while the elbow was uncomfortable. It is noteworthy whether Harper, who resolved the elbow problem through surgery, will be able to achieve results comparable to the MVP season once again.
