Is “God’s Gift to Baseball” – 17 year old Bryce Harper finally ready to join Major League Baseball? According to multiple baseball sources, scouts, and the Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo, that answer is Yes!
The Nationals have said they will most likely take Harper with the No. 1 pick in today’s First-Year Player Draft.
Harper completely skipped his Junior and Senior year of High School and enrolled at College of Southern Nevada Junior College to ultimately become eligible for the draft as soon as possible.
Is 17 too soon for Major League Baseball? I guess we’ll find out a bit sooner than we thought. Good luck Bryce!
