Bryce Harper is widely considered as one of best, if not the best, players in Major League Baseball. At only 23 years old, Harper is already being compared to baseball legends such as Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, and many others.
Harper made his Major League Baseball debut at the age of 19 in 2012, because of that, his team control will expire at a much younger age than the average player. He will be a free agent in 2019 at the age of 26.
After his incredible 2015 campaign at the age of 22, people think he will only improve as he gets older. Nobody has ever had expectations quite like Harper has, so there is no way to predict how much money he will make if he meets and exceeds these expectations.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Harper sign a contract worth $400-500 million dollars in 2019, which will break almost every monetary record in baseball history.
