In June of 2011 the Atlanta Braves selected Ryne Harper in 37th-round. On February 2, 2018, Harper signed a minor-league contract with the Minnesota Twins. We have all heard the saying “a cup of coffee in the big leagues”. Ryne Harper, literally, had a cup of coffee in the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners. He was called up for three days and didn’t throw one pitch in a game before he was sent back down.

In 2019, Harper was given a non-roster invitation to major-league spring training. On March 27th, 2019 Ryne Harper was told that he would be on the Twins' Opening Day roster.

If you googled his name in March, a 25-year-old Indy leaguer who posted a 7.88 ERA in 2017 with Garden City comes up first.
