Yeah I kinda felt the same way about Anderson, that's why I was pretty meh on him.

 

I would have rather seen them take someone with a plus tool like Clarkin and Kaminsky with their plus-plus Curveballs, or Judge with his plus power.

#Orioles get @hunterharvy35, strong-armed HS RHP (son of Bryan) to slot in behind Bundy & Gausman in future rotation. #mlbdraft

 

Hunter Harvey was up to 95 on one of my views this spring. Arm shows the potential for a drop off the table spiked curve. CH flashes.

Hopefully there is a lot to project in his stuff and with his frame.

Not usually that excited to take a HS pitcher.

He's got room to fill out. Could add a couple mph there. If he does I like him a lot better. I don't see the CV potential some do, looks like an average pitch to me. The CH isn't very good.

 

I called them going FB/CV/CH HS pitcher, just got the wrong one. Kaminsky has a 90-92 mph FB (like HH) but has a plus-plus CV and a CH that shows above average already, and he's a lefty.

 

STL popped him, so you know he's going to be a stud and make me look super smart in a couple years...the problem is no one will remember this in 3 years and I'll still be doing this on message boards ;)

I agree. I liked Kaminsky and Gonzalez bore than Harvey.

 

 

Now, all I've seen is some of the videos posted here but the curve ball didn;t look that impressive to me in the videos.

It's a HS kid, it's not where it will be. But he and Clarkin have very similar CV, hard, good control, big break, like a 11-5 break on it. Right NOW it's probably a 65-70, but it will be an 80.

I'm farther from being an expert in evaluations than just about everyone here probably, but from what I read this kid has reliever written all over him if he's ever going to make the big leagues.

Kaminsky is a smaller dude but I really was hoping he'd fall to us. He did and they passed. Head scratcher.

Eh I mean, he's got projectability, he could be better than that. He's not filled out or grown up yet. I wouldn't get too down on it yet, let's let him play a year or two first. Just not the way I would have gone, I liked those other kids better.

Yeah, broke my heart a little. I had my heart set on him early this morning.

Didn't intend to make it seem like I'm already down on the kid, and maybe this is one of those times when what you see in writing doesn't really tell the story. He certainly seems to love and have a passion for playing baseball, that never hurts. Just that in looking at the report (low 90's FB, struggles with command, just 2 pitches) there would seem to be a very wide chasm between where he is now and a ML rotation.

He's 18. What do you expect? Not everyone is Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman.

This is what a normal projectable HS pitcher is like.

Like I said earlier, we'll get to really see if our PDev system has improved the next couple of years. No point in really getting all worked up on June 6th about a guy most of us have never even heard of before. All about projectability, and development. We'll see.

Harvey is a very solid pick.  I would have gone with Ervin, but I have no complaints with Harvey.  Great upside.

I really do not know much about the kid, other than what is written, like most I have never seen him but he is 18 and less than 170 lbs.  My guess is as he fills out the velocity goes up a tick or two.  Those penciling him in as a reliever alredy or third or 4th stater are being a little negative.  They took a ride on his upside.  We will see.

As Gausman made it to the majors really fast and Dylan Bundy has already been up here, I think this is the first major test of the Duquette era. It will be interesting to see for sure, completely concur with your thoughts. I know some on here spend more time than others on the Draft. Like you, I can't get worked up one way or another, for something that is at minimum 2 years away and likely atleast three. That said, the Draft and player development process is exciting to watch. Although, hopefully with summers like the last one, I doubt the appeal of the next superstar in the system will be the same as it once was.
