IS BRYCE HARPER DESTINED TO BE A DESIGNATED HITTER ALL SEASON?

By Sam Bush

Bryce Harper has been bothered by a mild right elbow strain for several weeks.

MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki tweets that “nothing really has changed” following Harper’s latest visit with a team doctor.

It isn’t known when Harper will try throwing again, so the reigning NL MVP will continue to serve as the Phillies’ designated hitter.

Harper hasn’t played right field since April 16, but has still been productive (.288/.307/.542 with three home runs) over 62 plate appearances as a DH-only player.
