Thu Jul 1116:02Bryce Harper Returns On Thursday For Phillies
After missing Wednesday's showdown against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers with a bruised left hand, Philadelphia Phillies All-Star first baseman Bryce Harper (hand) is back at first base and batting third against Dodgers left-hander Anthony Banda as the Phils go for the three-game sweep. Not only has Harper been one of the most consistent sluggers in baseball yet again in 2024, but he's batting .500 with a 2.100 OPS in four career at-bats against Banda with a homer and two RBI. Get him back into all starting fantasy lineups. The 31-year-old two-time MVP was hitless in four at-bats in his first game off the injured list on Tuesday but he's slashing a strong .299/.394/.574 with a .968 OPS, 20 home runs, 58 RBI, four stolen bases and 52 runs scored in 340 plate appearances over 77 games in 2024.

Wed Jul 1017:16Bryce Harper Out With Bruised Hand On Wednesday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (hand) is out of the starting lineup on Wednesday in another showdown against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers after he bruised his right hand on a ball hit by Freddie Freeman in Tuesday night's 10-1 win. Harper is sore and will not give it a go on Wednesday after testing out his hand in the batting cages before the game. The 31-year-old two-time MVP came off the 10-day injured list on Tuesday from a hamstring strain to go 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Now he's dealing with a hand injury, although it doesn't appear to be too serious. Fantasy managers should consider Harper day-to-day and check back to see if he's back in there on Thursday for the series finale. Alec Bohm slides across the diamond to first base and will bat third on Wednesday, with Edmundo Sosa playing third and hitting seventh against Dodgers right-hander Gavin Stone.

Tue Jul 916:02Bryce Harper Reinstated And Starting On Tuesday
The Philadelphia Phillies reinstated first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday, and he is starting at first base and batting third against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers and right-hander Bobby Miller. The Phillies put Harper on the IL as a precaution with a low-grade left-hamstring strain, but he has returned before the All-Star break next week. Fantasy managers will want to get the 31-year-old two-time MVP back into all starting lineups for the rest of the week. The eight-time All-Star is returning to a fantastic .303/.399/.582 slash line with a .981 OPS, 20 homers, 20 doubles, 58 RBI, four stolen bases and 52 runs scored in 76 games in 2024. He'll be looking for his first career hit off Miller, who he has faced just two times before Tuesday's meeting.

Mon Jul 819:59Bryce Harper Could Return On Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) ran the bases at close to 100 percent intensity on Monday morning at Truist Park and said he feels good. Manager Rob Thomson said that Harper could return from the 10-day injured list and play on Tuesday in the series opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but it's not a certainty as it is for outfielder/designated hitter Kyle Schwarber (groin). Tuesday is the first day that Harper is eligible to come off the IL after dealing with a low-grade left-hamstring strain. When the 31-year-old former MVP does return, expect the Phillies to ease him back into starting duties at first base right before next week's All-Star break. Harper remains one of the best all-around hitters in the big leagues and will eventually return to a strong .303/.399/.582 slash line with a .981 OPS, 20 home runs, 58 RBI, four stolen bases and 52 runs scored in 287 at-bats this year.

Sat Jul 620:57Bryce Harper Runs The Bases With No Issue On Saturday
Philadelphia Phillies manager Rob Thomson said first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) had a good day running the bases. "So good that he's going to do it again on Sunday," said Thompson. Harper was placed on the injured list on June 27 with a low-grade hamstring strain. The 31-year-old is eligible to come off the injured list on Tuesday and is on target to return to action before the All-Star break. Harper is having a terrific season in 2024, slashing .303/.399/.582 with 20 home runs, 58 RBI, 52 runs, and four stolen bases over 336 plate appearances. Kody Clemens will continue to handle first base duties while Harper is sidelined. Clemens is on the deep-league radar after hitting .235 (4-for-17) with two doubles over his last five games.

Thu Jul 413:28Bryce Harper Doing Drills At 70-75% Intensity
Philadelphia Phillies manager Rob Thomson said that first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) is doing drills at about 70-75 percent intensity. Although the All-Star break looms after next week's homestand, the Phillies won't hold Harper back from coming off the 10-day injured list if he's ready to return before the Midsummer Classic. The 31-year-old All-Star is eligible to come off the IL on July 9 after being put on the shelf as a precaution due to a left-hamstring strain. If Harper doesn't come off the IL before the All-Star break in mid-July, he should be back early in the second half for fantasy managers. The former first overall pick by the Washington Nationals in 2010 continues to be a stud at the plate, batting .303 (87-for-287) this year with 20 long balls, 58 RBI, four steals and 52 runs scored in 76 games.

Tue Jul 220:07Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber Hit In The Cages Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) and outfielder/designated hitter Kyle Schwarber (groin) both hit in the batting cages on Tuesday at Wrigley Field before the game against the Chicago Cubs. Harper and Schwarber also did some jogging. "They're coming along," manager Rob Thomson said. "I don't think they're too far away. I don't know a date yet but we'll know in the next couple of days I would think." Harper and Schwarber were put on the 10-day injured list last Friday with minor injuries. They are first eligible for activation on July 9, when the team opens a six-game homestand against the Dodgers and Athletics that leads into the All-Star break. As long as neither left-handed sluggers have any setbacks, they should be back for fantasy managers before the Midsummer Classic.

Mon Jul 121:58Bryce Harper Works Out Sunday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) started doing some rehab work in the pool and the weight room prior to Sunday's game against the division-rival Miami Marlins, and manager Rob Thomson said that there's a "good chance" that he will return before the mid-July All-Star break. Harper is recuperating from a strained left hamstring, and it sounds like he should be able to the Phillies as soon as he's first eligible to be reinstated from the 10-day injured list on July 9. The 31-year-old superstar is slashing an MVP-caliber .303/.399/.582 with 20 home runs, 20 doubles, 58 RBI, and four stolen bases over 287 at-bats in 2024. Alec Bohm should primarily operate at first base while Harper is sidelined, opening up an everyday role at third base for Edmundo Sosa, who is worth watching in all fantasy leagues.

Fri Jun 2814:30Bryce Harper Placed On 10-Day Injured List
The Philadelphia Phillies placed All-Star first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list on Friday with a low-grade hamstring strain, according to sources. Harper could be activated from the IL as soon as July 9, but the Phillies could pad his recovery by another 10 days with the All-Star break in mid-July serving as a natural buffer. Even though his injury isn't serious, losing the National League MVP candidate is a serious blow to the Phillies lineup, especially considering outfielder/designated hitter Kyle Schwarber (groin) was also put on the IL on Friday. Harper injured his hamstring on the final play of Thursday night's loss to the Marlins and hobbled off the field. He has hit .342/.429/.647 since May 1 and has been just as good in June. Obviously, fantasy managers need to keep him stashed everywhere. Kody Clemens (back) is expected to come off the IL and see most of the at-bats at first base against right-handed pitchers with Harper out.

Thu Jun 2721:53Bryce Harper Hurts Hamstring Thursday
Philadelphia Phillies manager Rob Thomson said after Thursday's loss to the Miami Marlins that first baseman Bryce Harper (hamstring) felt his hamstring grab as he was running to first base on a game-ending groundout. Thomson said the club doesn't know more than that right now, and they will have more information before Friday's tilt against Miami. Harper limped off the field on Thursday, appearing to pull his left hamstring in the contest's waning moments. He'll head for imaging to determine the severity of the issue, and fantasy managers can only hope the 31-year-old superstar slugger isn't dealing with any kind of significant strain. Harper is slashing .303/.399/.582 with 20 home runs, 20 doubles, 58 RBI, and four stolen bases over 287 at-bats. Alec Bohm would likely shift to the cold corner if Harper is facing an extended absence, potentially opening up an everyday role at third base for Edmundo Sosa, who is worth a speculative add in most fantasy leagues.

Tue Jun 2500:12Bryce Harper Hits 18th Homer, Plates Five Monday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper continued to slug in Monday's 8-1 win over the Tigers. Harper went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a three-run home run, five RBI, and a strikeout. He also took part in turning a triple play in the third inning. The 31-year-old has produced like the high-end fantasy draft pick he was, slashing .303/.401/.577 with 19 HR, 51 runs scored, 56 RBI, and four stolen bases in 322 plate appearances. He may not produce as many steals as he has earlier in his career, but Harper has produced almost as many HR as he did in each of the 2022 and 2023 seasons. He should continue to be a top fantasy contributor in at least four categories.

Sun Jun 2309:58Bryce Harper Belts 18th Homer In Four-Hit Day
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper went 4-for-5 with his 18th home run of the season in Saturday's 12-1 rout of the Diamondbacks. Harper collected three RBI and scored twice in the contest as well. Harper now has a seven-game hit streak going, and has hit safely in 17 of his last 20 contests. The 31-year-old is having another MVP-caliber campaign, posting a .294-18-51-47-4 line with a .401 wOBA and 161 wRC+.

Sun Jun 908:33Bryce Harper Tallies Three Hits And Seventh Home Run On Saturday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper went 3-for-4 at the plate in the opening game of the London Series with his 15th long ball of the season. Harper carries a strong .276/.384/.535 line into Sunday with three stolen bases and 45 RBI. The former two-time MVP struggled through April but has put that behind him with a stellar .313 AVG through May and .333 through the first week of June. The former number-one overall pick has been hitting the ball exceptionally hard, with a 49.4% hard-hit rate and 11.9% barrel rate, which suggests he could have another successful season. Harper should remain in your starting lineup all summer and is considered matchup-proof in DFS.

Tue May 1419:10Bryce Harper Will Play Wednesday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (head) is feeling better, according to manager Rob Thomson, after he was scratched from Tuesday's win over the New York Mets due to a migraine headache. Harper's migraine was not related to him being hit in the head by a throw on Monday night. The former MVP was available to pinch hit on Tuesday and will play on Wednesday against the Mets, so fantasy managers will want to get him back in their starting lineups then. The 31-year-old left-handed slugger has been better so far in May, going 13-for-39 (.333) with three home runs and 11 RBI. On the season as a whole, Harper is slashing .259/.381/.496 with an .877 OPS, nine home runs, 29 RBI and two stolen bases in 168 plate appearances.

Tue May 1413:09Bryce Harper Scratched With Migraine On Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (migraine) was scratched from Tuesday's lineup with a migraine, per Mike Puma. There have not been any further updates regarding this, so consider the two-time NL MVP day-to-day. Harper should be expected to return to the Phillies lineup on Wednesday. As a result, Alec Bohm will shift to first base today, opening the hot corner up for Whitt Merrifield. Both Bohm and Merrifield are worth considering in DFS as they will face Jose Butto, who enters Tuesday's game with a 3.00 ERA.

Tue May 1413:08Bryce Harper Scratched With Migraine
Philadelphia Phillies first baseman Bryce Harper (head) has been scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the New York Mets with a migraine headache. Fantasy baseball managers will need to quickly remove Harper from their lineups on Tuesday before the first game of the day starts. With Harper now out, Alec Bohm will move across the diamond to first base and will hit cleanup, while Whit Merrifield starts at third base and hits sixth against Mets right-hander Jose Butto. Harper should be considered day-to-day for now. Fantasy managers will want to check back on Wednesday to see if he's back in the lineup for the third game of the series against the division rivals. Harper is hitting .259 (36-for-139) on the year with nine home runs, 29 RBI, two steals and 23 runs scored and is a must-start in all fantasy leagues when he's active.
