Bryce Harper’s nagging injuries more than a nagging concern

Is it time to be worried about Bryce Harper?

Maybe you’re already there.

Maybe you’re already worried about Harper’s health. Maybe you’re already worried how he’s going to make it to the end of his 13-year contract with the Phillies. Maybe you’re already worried that he’ll never make it through a full season healthy, that he’ll always have some kind of nagging injury holding him back, and that those injuries will prevent him from being the dependable, game-changing superstar the Phillies thought they were getting three years ago.

Because it happened again. Bryce Harper had to leave the Phils’ 5-3 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night because he tweaked his back on a swing in the fourth inning.
