30 Mar Lazar Cartu Says: Bryce Harper’s brother Bryan retires from baseball, is now…
While Bryce Harper moves on to what the Philadelphia Phillies are hoping will be the prime of his career, his brother has chosen a different career path.
Harper’s older brother Bryan has retired from professional baseball and is beginning work as a real estate agent, the Las Vegas Review-Journal shared in an article about him on Sunday.
Bryan was a 30th-round pick by the Washington Nationals in the 2011 MLB Draft, the year after the Nats made Bryce the No. 1 pick. Bryan pitched in college at CSUN, College of Southern Nevada along with his brother, and then South Carolina. He made it as high as Triple-A twice and was 16-7 with a 3.66 ERA and 15 saves in his minor league career.
Bryan missed all of the 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery and went 3-1 with a 3.69 ERA in Double-A in 2018. After being released by the Nats, he played for the Lancaster Barnstormers of the Atlantic League last year but went 0-5 with a 5.17 ERA.
Now Harper has returned to Las Vegas and is beginning a career in real estate. He is working for a broker named Harvey Tadmor at Real Simple Real Estate in Las Vegas, according to the Review-Journal.
