Mets Select UNC RHP Matt Harvey #7 Overall

By Unknown author

The Mets selected UNC (University of North Carolina) RHP Matt Harvey with the 7th pick of the 2010 MLB Draft.

Here’s my analysis on the righthander Harvey.

Strengths: Fastball, Changeup
Weaknesses: Delivery, Command (At Times)

Overall Anaysis: Matt Harvey is a good pick for the Mets. Harvey’s best pitches in his arsenal are his fastball and his changeup. Harvey’s fastball will top out at 97 MPH. Can throw it in the range of 92-97. There are questions about Matt Harvey’s command, but from what the scouting report says, he is improving that aspect of his game.

Here is a video on Matt Harvey for those who are not familiar with him.

Overall, the Mets chose a good pitcher. I will update you on the Mets other picks in the draft tommorrow.
