Matt Harvey Cracks Baseball America Top 50 Prospects
Baseball America has included Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey in their Midseason Top 50 Prospects after being snubbed in their Pre-Season Top 100.
The Mets’ 2010 first round draft pick, checked in at No. 30 and is gaining momentum after a dominating performance at Single-A Port St. Lucie.
Harvey was promoted to Double-A Binghamton a week ago and overall his record now stands at 8-4 with a 3.35 ERA in 88 innings, during which he racked up 106 strike outs against just 28 walks.
There are some experts and scouts who believe that Harvey is so polished and commanding that he could make an impact on the Mets as quickly as next season.
Mets Vice President of Scouting and Development, Paul DePodesta, told Adam Rubin of ESPN that while we probably won’t see Harvey in the majors this season, he does not mind jumping a pitcher straight from Double-A to the majors.
Harvey was the only Met to appear on the list, and if your curious, the Braves have three players ranked in the Top 50, while the Phillies and Nationals have two players, and the Marlins have none.
