Philly Phillies slugger Bryce Harper had Tommy John surgical treatment on his ideal arm joint Wednesday, according to the group.

The treatment was carried out by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.

The Phillies claimed Harper is anticipated to return as a player just by the All-Star break and also might go back to playing ideal area by the end of the routine period.

Phillies head of state Dave Dombrowski had actually informed press reporters recently that Harper would certainly have the arm joint surgical treatment, although it had not been understood if it would certainly be of the Tommy John range.

” We have no diagnosis, truly, till [the surgeon] enters into the arm joint and also has a look at it,” Dombrowski claimed after that.

Harper tore his UCL in April, and also it stopped him from playing in the area the remainder of the period. He got a platelet-rich plasma shot in his ideal arm joint in May and also changed to the marked player function after that.
