Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 60 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45

The Orioles' first-round pick in 2013, Harvey showed immense promise the next year during his full-season debut, which included a Futures Game selection at age 19. However, injuries have since derailed Harvey's progress, limiting the right-hander to just 63 2/3 total innings since 2015. Elbow issues cost him part of 2014 and all of '15 before he ultimately required Tommy John surgery in June '16. When he returned to the mound in July 2017, Harvey looked like his old self while making eight starts across three levels, and the Orioles added him to their 40-man roster after the season. An impressive showing in Spring Training offered hope that 2018 might be the year Harvey would stay healthy and put it all together, but he made just eight starts at Double-A Bowie before a sore shoulder landed him on the disabled list in June, effectively ending his season. Healthy again in 2019, Harvey began the season in Double-A Bowie's rotation but had been officially moved into a bullpen role by mid-June.

Harvey continues to show dynamic stuff in the rare instances he's healthy. His fastball will sit in the 92-95 mph range and reaches 96-97, thrown with good angle from a relatively smooth delivery. He pairs his heater with a plus curveball that he throws with tight spin and considerable depth to create late downward action. Harvey's changeup gives him another quality offering, though his time on the shelf has impacted its development.

Harvey has No. 3-starter upside based on his raw stuff, though it will be difficult for him to reach his ceiling (or anything close to it) if he can't stay on the field. Entering his age-24 season in 2019, Harvey's clearest path to the Majors likely is as a reliever, and there's little doubt that he could be effective in a late-inning role with his two plus pitches.
