Today is a great day to get off the Internet if you are a @Phillies fan sending death threats to Trent Thornton. It’s spring training you clowns. #Getalife— Brent Cardy (@BrentCardyShow) March 15, 2019Harper took a 96 mph fastball from Thornton in the right ankle and went down on the ground in obvious pain. He exited the game and was taken for X-rays. Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said that Harper has a right foot contusion. Related News “We are confident he is going to be alright. Not overly concerned right now,” Kapler said.That’s good news, because the initial “thud” and sight of Harper hitting the ground left the impression the injury could be much worse.Ouch.Bryce Harper exits today’s game after being hit in his right ankle. pic.twitter.com/RIZHGluHQM— NBC Sports Philadelphia (@NBCSPhilly) March 15, 2019It’s ridiculous to think Thornton threw at Harper on purpose. The 25-year-old right-hander, who pitched in Triple-A for the Astros last season, is trying to make the Blue Jays roster.“Crap. You know, I didn’t mean to do that,” Thornton said after the game (via Philly.com). “It’s spring training. Everybody’s shaking all the rust off, and stuff. Look at my seasons. I typically don’t hit many guys.”Yet when Harper, who agreed to a 13-year, $330 million deal with the Phillies just over two weeks ago, got hit, fans vented their anger on Twitter. Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo defended his young pitcher.“I can see how people get upset, of course,” Montoyo told reporters after the game. “He’s a star. The kid’s not going to hit him, for sure. There’s no reason to. There’s no history.”There’s no nothing. Hopefully those people that are sending (Thornton) messages stop because it wasn’t on purpose at all and everybody knows it.” Trent Thornton, the Blue Jays pitcher who hit Bryce Harper with a fastball Friday, drew the wrath of Phillies fans on Twitter.There were numerous “death” references in the comments, revealing the ugly side of the social media platform, over-exuberant fans and human nature.
