Bryce Harper is not in the Phillies’ starting lineup today against the Cardinals.
The Phils have offered no reason, although left-hander Kwang-Hyun Kim is on the mound for the Cardinals and Harper has trouble with lefties.
Matt Joyce is starting in right field and batting seventh for the Phillies.
He’s hitting .238/.396/.429 with eight runs scored, two homers and six RBI over 53 plate appearances this season.
