Reigning NL MVP Bryce Harper to play for Team USA in 2023 World Baseball Classic

Philadelphia Phillies designated hitter Bryce Harper.

With the 2023 World Baseball Classic scheduled to begin in March, rosters for the international tournament are beginning to take shape.

Defending champion, Team USA, has added yet another superstar to the squad.

Phillies All-Star outfielder and the reigning National League MVP, Bryce Harper, is the newest addition to the team in stars and stripes.

The WBC returns after a five-year absence, with games to be held in Taichung, Tokyo, Phoenix, and Miami. The tournament kicks off on March 8, with the championships game scheduled for March 21 in Miami.

Harper is the latest star to jump aboard Team USA, joining another former MVP, Mike Trout, with Nolan Arenado, Paul Goldschmidt, Trevor Story, and Phillies’ teammate J.T. Realmuto.

The 29-year-old has been out of action since June 25 after undergoing surgery to repair a fracture in his left thumb.

Earlier this month, Harper began hitting off a tee while also doing light throwing exercises. He told reporters he hoped to return to the Phillies lineup sometime in September.

On Friday, Phillies’ manager Rob Thomson provided the latest update, saying Harper was doing “short, BP-type stuff” and would likely be sent for a minor league rehab assignment to get some at-bats.

In 64 games for the Phillies this season, Harper is slashing .318/.385/.599 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI.
