Philadelphia Phillies Place Kyle Schwarber And Bryce Harper On A 10-Day Injured List


The Philadelphia Phillies have placed first baseman Bryce Harper and designated hitter Kyle Schwarber on the 10-day injured list after they both sustained injuries during the team’s defeat to the Miami Marlins on Thursday night. Bryce Harper sustained a left hamstring strain, while Schwarber suffered a left groin strain.

The first baseman began limping after injuring his hamstring during the final out of the Phillies’ 7-4 defeat. While hustling down the line in an attempt to beat out a grounder to the right side, Harper reached for his left hamstring after crossing first base and hobbled toward the dugout. 

He said that he has “never really had a soft-tissue injury” before, stating that he felt discomfort about halfway down the first base line. 

Earlier in the day, Harper had been picked by fans to start at first base for the National League in the July 16 All-Star Game in Texas. He is currently hitting.303 with 20 home runs and 58 RBIs.

Harper teammate Kyle Schwarber also sustained an injury, leaving the game in the ninth inning after experiencing left groin tightness following an awkward throw from the outfield. 

Schwarber, normally a designated hitter, started in left field for just the third time this season.

“I reached down to grab the ball barehanded and kind of planted for the throw and felt it grab,” Schwarber said. “I thought it was just a cramp at first and I finished the inning. But, as I was running in (between innings) I could still kind of feel it, so I talked to the trainer and he didn’t like where the spot was … so he wanted to get me out of there.”
