Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia broke the news that Harper underwent Tommy John surgery today. That procedure apparently went "very well."

Harper could return to "hitting competitively" by mid-May, per Salisbury's report.

Although it's unfortunate that Harper had to go under the knife, Tommy John surgery shouldn't prevent him from seeing the field in 2023.

Angels star Shohei Ohtani made a rather quick recovery from the same injury in 2019. He spent that season as the team's designated hitter.

Harper is coming off another productive season in Philadelphia. He finished the regular season with a .286 batting average, 18 home runs and 65 RBI.

During the postseason, Harper took his game to another level. The two-time MVP had six homers and 13 RBI in 17 games.
