The Phillies are expecting slugger Kyle Schwarber back from the injured list tonight, and he might be joined by superstar Bryce Harper.

They have been on the injured list since late June due to a groin strain and hamstring strain, respectively, though both issues were described as very mild.

Per reporting over the weekend, Schwarber has been running at 100% intensity for several days now while Harper had been running “either at or close to 100% intensity.”

The return of Schwarber and potentially Harper figures to transform a Phillies lineup that has dealt with not only those losses but also the loss of catcher J.T. Realmuto in recent weeks.

Schwarber has enjoyed a strong season that’s become typical of him during his time with the Phillies, slashing .250/.373/.447 with 17 home runs in 367 trips to the plate this year. Harper has been even better at the plate, turning in a massive .303/.399/.582 line with 20 homers in 336 plate appearances.
