Philadelphia Phillies’ Bryce Harper has small tear in UCL, can’t throw for four weeks


Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper, limited to designated hitter duty of late, has a small tear in his UCL, will get a PRP injection and will not throw a baseball for four weeks, manager Joe Girardi told reporters Thursday.

Girardi said Dr. Neal ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe in Los Angeles confirmed the tear during Harper’s visit on Thursday morning.

Harper, who will miss games Sunday and possibly Tuesday after getting the injection, will start a throwing program after the four weeks is up, Girardi said. He can continue to swing a bat, and Girardi expects to utilize him at DH.
