LEADING OFF: Harper gets injection, Acuña MRI, Pineda out


By The Associated Press

Phillies star Bryce Harper is scheduled to get a platelet-rich plasma injection to help with a small tear in his right elbow, causing him to miss the series finale at Dodger Stadium. The reigning NL MVP battered Los Angeles pitching in the first two games of the set, going 5 for 8 with two home runs and three doubles with five RBIs and two walks. Harper might also miss Philadelphia’s home game Tuesday night against San Diego. The right fielder won’t throw for four weeks, but will remain in the lineup as the designated hitter.
