The son of mustachioed Angel closer Bryan Harvey, North Carolina's Hunter Harvey is a big righthander with a big fastball and a quality curve. The fastball, which used to peak in the low-90's, now reaches 98mph when it needs to, and while that's the main reason he's been zipping up prospect lists, it's his plus curveball that truly makes Harvey exceptional. Prep pitchers aren't known for having quality secondary offerings, but Harvey's Hammer (trademark pending) is a beautiful one. Harvey's change is still coming along, but it looked better at the end of the year than the beginning, which means he's right on track. A complete pitching package, he's almost certain to hit an MLB rotation sometime in the next year or so. The only question is whether he'll settle into the middle of it, or reach the top ahead of schedule.
