Phillies Outfielder Bryce Harper Returns After Welcoming Son
Congratulations are in order for Phillies outfielder Bryce Harper and his wife Kayla. The couple welcomed a son, Krew Aron Harper, born August 22, 2019. Krew is the Harper's first-born child.
Harper will return to the Phillies tonight, the club announced.
That move means that Maikel Franco will return to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The Phillies summoned Franco upon Harper being placed on the paternity list. Franco was 2 for 6 with a double in his three games with the big club. Franco also made a costly defensive miscue at third base that helped exacerbate the poor play by the Phillies.
