6'03" 175lbs DOB: 12/09/94 | The son of former All-Star closer Bryan Harvey, this North Carolina high school product has used a strong spring to move up Draft boards. He's gained some strength and has a fresh arm after not playing summer ball. Harvey will throw his above-average fastball up to 94 mph. He throws a curve and a changeup, both of which are a bit inconsistent but have the chance to be Major League average pitches. And he has more room to add strength, so there might be more in the tank. That projectability, to go along with his Major League bloodlines, will surely have many teams interested come Draft day.

With all of the college SPs available I'm surprised we picked someone who will need four or five years to reach the ML.
