Philadelphia Phillies star outfielder Bryce Harper exited Friday’s spring training game against the Toronto Blue Jays after taking a 96 mile-per-hour fastball to the ankle.

As you can see below, Harper was visibly limping as he left the Grapefruit League game in Florida.

The good news here is that X-rays on the injured ankle came back negative. Harper’s injury is being considered a contusion.

Harper, who just recently signed a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Phillies, will undergo further testing — likely including an MRI.

But for now, it looks like the Phills and their slugger dodged a bullet big time.
