Harper underwent Tommy John surgery in early November, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

Harper, who is Bryce's older brother, had finally pushed his way onto the big league radar for the first time during the 2016 season, so this is pretty unfortunate. The lefty reliever reached Triple-A and posted a 2.95 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 20:11 K:BB in 21.1 innings before being shut down late in the year. He will miss all of the 2017 season, but should be ready for spring training in 2018.
