Phillies' star outfielder Bryce Harper said on Monday that he had the pins placed in his fractured left thumb removed and will start a hitting program soon.

Bryce Harper Injury Update

Harper is on track to return in mid-August, according to the Pro Baseball Docs, which is in line with initial estimates of a six-week recovery. 

Harper suffered a fractured left thumb when he got hit by an errant fastball from Blake Snell on June 25. 

He underwent surgery June 29, which the Docs said signaled it was a comminuted fracture – broken into multiple out-of-place pieces – but would recover stronger than with only a splint.

Rehab for this surgery takes six-to-eight weeks, meaning Harper is two-to-three weeks from the field.

Phillies World Series Odds

After a slow start, the Phillies are 34-18 since June 1 and are tied with the Cardinals for the third NL Wild Card spot. 

Philadelphia is +5500 to win the World Series, +2000 to win the NL, and +7500 to win the NL East on FanDuel Sportsbook.
