Baby Harper is on his way.

Bryce Harper did not fly with the Phillies this weekend to Miami. He returned home to be with his wife, Kayla, as she gives birth to the couple’s son.

His roster spot this weekend will be filled by Maikel Franco, who returns from triple A after being demoted last month.
