Bryce Harper met with hand specialists Monday to determine the severity of his broken left thumb.
No decision has been made, but surgery is likely for Harper, according to sources. Even if he has surgery, there remains a chance he'll play again for the Philadelphia Phillies this season.
Harper got hit by a 97 mph fastball in the fourth inning in Saturday night's game against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.
After winning the 2021 National League MVP, he is hitting .318/.385/.599 with 15 home runs, 48 RBI and nine stolen bases in 64 games.
