PHILADELPHIA– Bryce Harper, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder who is recovering from a broken left thumb, is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday, it has been announced.
Harper is expected to play with Triple-A Lehigh Valley through Saturday while they host Gwinnett for a six-game streak, Lehigh said in a statement.
Harper is expected to take Sunday off and could potentially return to the Philadelphia lineup on Monday when the Phillies begin a streak in Arizona.
Last week, Harper completed a 60-stroke BP session at Citizens Bank Park. It was the first time he had swung a racquet since his thumb broke on March 25.
The seven-time All-Star and two-time MVP is batting .318 with 15 homers and 48 RBIs this season.
