Sunday’s temperature hovered around 90 degrees in Philadelphia, which was probably a factor in what happened. The Phillies don’t play again until Tuesday, so there’s no reason to believe he’ll miss any further time as a result.
Harper has been heating up lately, hitting .292 with seven home runs in his last 12 games. Maybe it’s because he’s gotten a bit of his swagger back in recent weeks.
