Bryce Harper
Wednesday marked the fifth anniversary of Bryce Harper's monumental $330 million, 13-year contract agreement with the Philadelphia Phillies. 
Harper made his spring training debut on the same day, showing no signs of rust as he went 1-for-3 against the Atlanta Braves in a game that ended in a 7-7 tie. Harper's return wasn't just about hitting; he also displayed his defensive skills with a diving stop in the first inning and initiating a double play in the third.
In addition to Harper's performance, J.T. Realmuto and Alec Bohm each hit a home run in their first Grapefruit League at-bats, contributing to the team's success. 
Edmundo Sosa was scratched from the lineup with a left foot contusion before Wednesday’s game. The Phillies say he is day to day. 
Also of note, Brandon Marsh did some outfield work for the first time since undergoing knee surgery last month. He's expected to be ready by Opening Day. 
 Looking ahead, the Phillies will feature recently acquired pitcher Max Castillo in Thursday's game against the Blue Jays in Dunedin, Fla.
