Brandon Beachy’s season is over

All of us who are convinced that Matt Harvey should go get Tommy John surgery yesterday should probably remind ourselves that it’s not ALWAYS a routine thing. Take Brandon Beachy who hasn’t been able to get right this year:

 

Beachy has pitched in five games this year and he’s now likely done for the season.

The Braves are now short him, Tim Hudson and Paul Maholm in the rotation. Not gonna hate on ’em, but no, the Braves are not currently my favorite to come out of the NL playoffs.

Bryce Harper finally gets his first spring training hit with Phillies

Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper hasn’t had the best spring training showing. After a delayed start because he didn’t officially sign until early this month, Harper made his Phillies debut on March 9. Then Harper had an injury scare when he was hit in the ankle by a pitch on March 15. Harper returned on Sunday and finally registered his first hit of the spring on Wednesday — a line drive up the middle.

Harper finished 1-for-2 with a walk on the afternoon. In 10 official at-bats, Harper is batting .100/.438/.100. As you can see, five total walks are helping that on-base percentage. Spring stats are largely meaningless, though, so no one should be worried about Harper with the start of the regular season just a week away.
