Philadelphia Phillies star Bryce Harper hasn't been seen in the outfield since April 16 as he battles a strain near his right elbow. While Harper is able to serve as the team's DH, Philadelphia would love to have its MVP back in right field to lead this defense.

The latest injury update on Harper, though, isn't the greatest of news.

Bryce Harper Injury Update

Harper told reporters Tuesday night he didn't "feel great" after playing catch in right field. There's no time table for him to return to RF and he's slated to continue in a batting-only role for now.

Obviously this prompts some concerns about the severity of the injury. Harper says it's an issue he's never dealt with before, which clouds the potential recovery time.

At least the 2021 NL MVP hasn't had any setbacks. And he's still able to DH extremely well for the Phillies: He's slashing .324/.316/.595 with 12 hits, 4 doubles and 6 RBI over his last nine games, all of which have been as the designated hitter.

Hopefully Harper remains setback-free and is able to captain the outfield in the coming days.
