Phillies star Bryce Harper could return to the lineup Sunday, according to manager Joe Girardi. The outfielder did not play on Saturday after waking up with lower back tightness.
Harper owns a suboptimal .238/.396/.429 slash line this season, though he has posted an impressive 10-to-12 walk-to-strikeout clip.
