Phillies get good early news on Bryce Harper injury

Bryce Harper’s injury does not appear to be overly serious, at least initially.

X-rays on Harper’s ankle and foot were negative, and manager Gabe Kapler did not seem especially concerned about his star outfielder’s status.

Harper was hit on the foot or ankle with a fastball during Friday’s spring training contest against the Toronto Blue Jays and limped off the field. Initial fears about a break or some sort of significant injury appear to be unfounded, and it sounds like the best-case scenario may be him sitting out for a few days as a precaution.
