With the 7th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft, the New York Mets select Matt Harvey, a right-handed pitcher from the University of North Carolina. In the 2009 season, Harvey went 7-2 with a 5.40 ERA in his 2009 sophomore campaign and followed that up with a 7-3 record and a 3.10 ERA in his 2010 season as a junior.

  • Matt is 6’4, 225 pounds.
  • He throws a fastball that goes up to 97 MPH, throws a change-up, and is working on a curveball. With that size, speed, and pitch selection, I wonder what Mets’ righty he will get compared to…
  • Out of high school, he was drafted 118th overall by the Los Angeles Angels in 2007.
  • Since 2004, the Mets last five out of eight first round draft picks, including Harvey, are right-handed pitchers.
