Phillies' Bryce Harper Not in Lineup Friday vs. Dodgers

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper is not in the lineup for Friday’s matchup with the Los Angeles Dodgers, per the team’s Twitter. Harper’s unavailability is a bit concerning, considering he received a platelet-rich plasma injection to advance the healing of his elbow over the weekend. This game will be his fifth straight absence, and the Phillies are just 1-3 over the previous four. The organization’s original consensus was to allow him to fill the designated hitter position, but those plans have gone awry.
