Jim Salisbury interviewed Phils all-timer Larry Bowa, who is a senior advisor to the GM, and Bryce Harper came up right off the bat:
“He’s in great shape,” Bowa said. “I don’t like to put numbers on guys, but it would not shock me if he hit between 40 and 50 home runs this season.
“I’ve never seen bat speed like this. I call him “The Freak.” He has a chance to do some serious damage this year, barring injury. The ball just comes off his bat so different than anyone else. It’s a loud sound right now.”
