Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Fastball: 65 | Curveball: 50 | Changeup: 45 | Control: 50 | Overall: 40

After missing his first year at Pittsburgh with a knee injury in 2011, Harvey gradually improved over the next three seasons before signing with the Yankees for $60,000 in the 19th round as a redshirt junior. He had more physical issues in pro ball, enduring Tommy John surgery in 2015 and shoulder tendinitis in 2017 as he totaled just 74 2/3 innings in his first four seasons. He has been unhittable for much of the last two seasons and made his big league debut in April.

Harvey depends heavily his fastball, sitting at 95-97 mph and reaching 99 with some late life. He has some power to his curveball, though it isn't always reliable. He'll occasionally throw a changeup to give left-handers a different look, but he mainly challenges hitters to catch up to his heater.

Harvey has some crossfire in his delivery that adds deception but also can hamper his ability to throw strikes. Whether he winds up as a hard-throwing middle reliever or a late-inning weapon will depend on how much he can improve his curveball and control.
