Matt Harvey Cracks Keith Law’s Top 50 Prospects

An article by posted on July 15, 2011

ESPN’s Keith Law updated his 2011 Top 50 Prospect List yesterday, and Mets pitching prospect Matt Harvey checked in at #26. He was the only Mets prospect to appear on Law’s list and he replaces injured pitcher Jenrry Mejia who was bumped off.

Here is his Top 10:

  1. Bryce Harper, WAS
  2. Matt Moore, TB
  3. Shelby Miller, STL
  4. Carlos Martinez, STL
  5. Manny Machado, BAL
  6. Devin Mesoraco, CIN
  7. Hak-Ju Lee, TB
  8. Desmond Jennings, TB
  9. Brett Lawrie, TOR
  10. Martin Perez, TEX

The following is what Law had to say about Harvey:

His transition to Double-A hasn’t gone smoothly (13 runs allowed in 12 2/3 innings so far), but is up to 97 mph with a chance for three above-average secondary pitches.

Harvey, the Mets 2010 first round pick, was also recently added to Baseball America’s Mid Season Top 50 last week.
