When your star player gets drilled in the ankle by a pitch, it causes a lot of concern. When your star player gets drilled after just having signed a $330 million contract, it’s a cause for outright panic.

That sensation of panic was felt by Phillies fans everywhere as Bryce Harper lay crumpled on the ground after taking this pitch to the ankle.

Watch:

Ouch.

Yikes.

The pitch from Toronto’s Trent Thornton clocked-in at 96 mph. Harper was forced to leave the game. No word yet on the extent of the injury.
