Bryce Harper Shows off Bruises After Taking 97-MPH Pitch To The Face (VIDEO)
Bryce Harper said he was “all good” after leaving Wednesday night’s game against the Cardinals following a pitch that was thrown right at his face from reliever Genesis Cabrera.
Harper was bloodied on the left side of his nose, but was able to leave the field on his own accord in the sixth inning.
In a video he posted to social media after Philadelphia’s 5-3 win, Harper said his scans “came back good.”
“Everything feels good,” he said. “Everything came back good — CT, all that kind of stuff. So, face is still there. We’re all good. See you guys soon.”
After Harper got hit, Cabrera then hit the next batter, Didi Gregorius, which led to the umpire dishing out warnings to both sides. Phillies manager Joe Girardi came out of the dugout to complain and got tossed from the game.
Cabrera apologized for hitting Harper after the game, saying he was “overthrowing and that’s why I missed the pitches.”
