Philadelphia Phillies designated hitter Bryce Harper took to Instagram to update fans on his status. Needless to say, Phillies fans will be fired up over the update.
Harper taking outdoor batting practice is the first step in his eventual return to the lineup. If all goes well, Harper will progress to “high velocity” hitting in the indoor cage, and then a minor league rehabilitation assignment. The target date for his return is “September-ish” according to NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Jim Salisbury.

The Athletic’s Jayson Stark is reporting the Philadelphia Phillies have been targeting starting pitching ahead of Tuesday’s MLB trade deadline. Specifically, the Phillies are looking for a playoff-caliber starter.
The Phillies currently have a one-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals for the final NL Wild Card spot. And Red October is in sight for the first time in over a decade.
So, while the Phillies are “in” on a starter, they’re also reportedly not willing to include any top prospects.
