Man oh man, Trent Thornton just hit Bryce Harper in the lower leg/foot area and he went down hard. He's also coming out of the game and limping pretty badly after taking a long time to get up. #BlueJays
Toronto rookie Trent Thornton nailed Bryce Harper in the ankle with a 96 mph fastball.
He says it was not intentional. Did not mean to do it. He said the ball slipped.
What do you think? https://t.co/8wtHktM7ci
Blue Jays reliever Trent Thornton, who hit Bryce Harper on the top of the foot with a pitch, is getting crushed on social media and being threatened by "fans."
Thornton tried to go inside on a 1-1 pitch with a fastball, and "it slipped," he said.
#BlueJays manager Charlie Montoyo on Trent Thornton hitting Bryce Harper today: "We’re all hoping one of the best stars in baseball is not hurt, but everybody knows it wasn’t on purpose. Of course not. We’re not going to put out a four-man outfield to hit the guy in the leg."
Trent Thornton was shocked as he sat in the visitor’s clubhouse scrolling through his Twitter timeline as he found out how ruthless #Phillies fans can be after unintentionally hitting Bryce Harper. (@SNJeffBlair)
Just imagine if it ends up being more than just a bruise.. Trent Thornton would pretty much have to stay away from the city of Philadelphia, forever.. Philly fans are crazy & don't forget easily.. https://t.co/aJYM7tjfJo
Hey @Phillies fans Stop Sending death threats to Trent Thornton from the @BlueJays You guys are ignorant and Full of Garbage. Hope you and the team drop in a pit of fire! #DumbestFansInProSports #NobodyLikesPhilly
To my fellow Phillies fans: Making death threats to Trent Thornton is asinine. You bitch about stereotypes of Phillies fans, then turn around and feed into them.
To Jays fans: If you really believe a professional pitcher lost control of a fastball that badly, you're delusional.
