Harper suffered nothing worse than a bruised left big toe after getting hit by a pitch Tuesday and will be back on the field Friday against Detroit, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper indicated during the game that his removal was purely precautionary, and it seems as though his optimism was warranted. The Phillies have an off day Wednesday, and Harper wasn't scheduled to play Thursday, so he won't wind up missing any time with the minor injury.

Harper said that he was "totally fine" after leaving Tuesday's game against the Twins after a pitch hit his foot, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper didn't appear to be in significant pain as he left the game, and he confirmed during the game that his removal was indeed precautionary. He was only scheduled for two at-bats in Tuesday's contest, so his early removal shouldn't have any impact on his buildup for Opening Day beyond costing him a single spring at-bat. His return date is not yet clear, but it sounds as though it will be coming quite soon.

Harper left Tuesday's game against the Twins after getting hit by a pitch in his foot, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper walked off the field without issues and didn't appear to be noticeably limping, so it's likely his removal was purely precautionary. His expected return date should become clear following the game.

Harper went 2-for-5 with a solo home run across both games of the team's doubleheader Tuesday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Harper went 1-for-4 in the first of the Phillies' games Tuesday. While he was out of lineup for the second contest, he appeared as a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning and delivered his 34th home run of the campaign. Though he has posted a disappointing season from a power perspective, Harper is ending the season with a flourish, delivering three home runs and two doubles across his last eight games. Overall, he's hitting .258/.374/.505 across 657 plate appearances.

Harper will sit for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader in Washington, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harper went 1-for-4 in the day's first game. The loss in that contest eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention, so Harper won't be asked to play two games in one day in what's now a lost season.

Harper went 1-for-3 with a walk, home run and four RBI on Saturday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Harper took Oliver Perez deep in the fifth inning for a three-run home run. It was his third homer in his last 10 games, pushing his total to 33 on the season. While his power production doesn't rank among the elite this season, Harper has still found plenty of areas to contribute, highlighted by 108 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 148 games.

Harper was ejected from Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Harper went 1-for-2 with two walks, run and stolen base in a 3-1 loss against the Braves on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old is right about where he was last season in terms of stolen bases. Actually, a lot of his numbers from last year compare to what he's done during his first campaign with the Phillies. Harper is batting .255 with 31 home runs, 102 RBI, 88 runs and 12 steals in 513 at-bats this year. While he only has 12 stolen bases, Harper has swiped four bags since Aug. 31.

Harper (hand) is starting in right field and hitting third Monday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The Phillies withheld Harper from the starting lineup over the weeked due to a hand injury he sustained Friday after getting hit by a pitch, but he's good to go for Monday's series opener after entering Sunday's game as a pinch hitter -- drawing an RBI walk in his lone plate appearance -- and experiencing no issues. The outfielder, who is slashing .281/.410/.500 with two home runs and four stolen bases over his past 10 games, will face righty Mike Foltynewicz in his return to the starting nine.
