PHILS SEASON LOOKS COOKED UNLESS HARPER CAN HIT AGAIN SOON!

By Sam Bush

Bryce Harper originally was projected to return to the lineup against San Diego on Tuesday or Wednesday, but soreness in his right throwing elbow following the injection has persisted and kept him on the bench.

He has been playing exclusively at designated hitter since injuring his arm on a throw from right field last month.

He last played the field at Miami on April 16.

Harper is batting .305 with nine homers and 27 RBI in 34 games.

And the Phils are 18-21, 7 1/2 games behind the Mets in NL East, and 3 games out of the last Wild Card playoff spot.
