There are a few things that the Phillies could bear to have happen injury-wise. At the point when Jean Segura went down with a messed-up hand, they were fortunate enough that Didi Gregorius was falling off of the harmed list, meaning Bryson Stott could slide over and Nick Maton, before his own physical issue, could fill in too.
At the point when Corey Knebel missed a couple of games in the warm-up area, they had the option to call up Francisco Morales to contribute a couple of games and show strong stuff (don’t ask what’s occurred since).
Bryce Harper took a fastball to his thumb the previous evening.
Ensuing x-beams showed a break, meaning he is out endlessly. Hopeful courses of events could express something like 4 a month and a half, however, we as a whole realize that is presumably not the situation. A large portion of us is getting ready for terrible.
It is difficult to state how much this will hurt this group. At the point when Harper missed even a couple of games with a rankle, the offense battled. Being worked around his steady presence in the setup, it doesn’t work very also when he is missing from it. With such countless individuals who should deliver not doing so this season (Nick Castellanos, J.T. Realmuto, Alec Bohm), Harper’s tip top-level creation helped move the group along.
Presently it’s gone.
We’ll have more on this as it grows, however obviously, things are hopeless at the present time.
