PHILS BRYCE HARPER’S POWER — BY THE NUMBERS!

By Sam Bush

Whenever Major League Baseball does return — and the word is it’ll be by July 4 — Phillies fans will become reacquainted with Bryce Harper’s power

He has hit 219 home runs over his eight-year career and led the NL with 42 in 2015.

It is easy to picture him finishing his career with 500-plus home runs, especially if he stays healthy. After all, he consistently hits the ball hard. Last season, he ranked in the 89th percentile in exit velocity, 86th percentile in hard-hit percentage, 91st percentile in expected slugging percentage and 94th percentile in barrel percentage.

Combine hard and far and you will hit a bunch of home runs.
