An article by posted on July 15, 2011 0 Comments

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.
