    Phillies slugger Harper likely to stay as DH when he returns

    Phillies slugger Bryce Harper is likely to continue as a designated hitter and might not play the outfield when he returns from a broken left thumb that has sidelined him since late June. Harper had been periodically doing a throwing program with the hopes of returning to the outfield this season, but interim manager Rob Thomson said on Tuesday that Harper has cut back on that regimen. “We’re just going to back off a minute and concentrate on the hitting,” Thomson said before Philadelphia faced Miami.
