BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for reading all these questions, Doug. Have you seen Hunter Harvey in person or on film? The stuff looks good. He comes around the corner a little bit, but doesn't seem to cut himself off. Do you see any red flags?
(CyOld from Cooperstown Retirement Home)
Hi Cy. I would like to see a better burst and a long stride, as Harvey seems to put his foot down too early to reap the full benefits of the lift+stride phase. The stuff is definitely legit, though, and he has time to hone his delivery and discover the pitch command that will make the most of his repertoire. (Doug Thorburn)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan, thanks. Hunter Harvey on TV: young, inconsistent. FB moves hard when down; CB: tight. Scouts agree? What about a change?
(Random Smoke from High 'n' Outside)
That pretty much sums it up. Reports on Harvey are outstanding, and I had the chance to see him in person at the futures game. I was actually sitting on the first base line, so I got to see his mechanics from the closed side. He's definitely got some arm lag. This is something that can probably be cleaned up over time, but it was easily apparent, even in warm ups.

The arm is live, and I see the big time upside. The CB is a MF pitch. CH is coming along, but he's still really young. It's a feel pitch, but he has the arm speed to create separation with the FB. I see a starter in there for sure, but I'm more content with my stance that Kohl Stewart is the better prospect (see debate with #diesel Mellen) (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)Who threw the best breaking ball you've seen all year?
(Fart Garfunkel from Poopsylvania)
I was sitting on the side for the futures game, but this guy Lucas Giolito has a pretty good one. Hunter Harvey's had big time depth.

Full game observance: Jake Thompson's SL is really nasty. Alex Reyes' flashed 6+. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which pitchers do you see rising into the top 20 by the end of the season?
(flashtheleather from Over the wall)
He doesn't need to move far, but Hunter Harvey could cement himself as a Top 20 prospect by the end of this season. He was awfully close in our discussions leading up to the revised Top 50 release.

I also believe you could see another jump from someone like AJ Cole, and with a rebound in the second half, Mark Appel could re-assert himself as a top prospect without much trouble. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat! Who has the greatest ceiling and what is their future rotation spot - Lucas Sims, Trey Ball, Kohl Stewart, Jeff Hoffman, and Hunter Harvey.
(Nicta from Peoria AZ)
I think Kohl Stewart and Hunter Harvey have the biggest ceilings here. Kohl has a very athletic delivery/body and I dig his profile. I would probably put him over Harvey. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)I think Jose Berrios would rank much higher as a prospect if he went by JO. But as it stands who ranks higher Berrios or Hunter Harvey?
(edwar288 from Minneapolis)
Harvey is going to be higher in the rankings, but as soon as Berrios finishes this year without losing his velocity, he's going to close the gap.

And given the choice, all prospects should go by initials. I'm with you. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey has taken the prospect chatter by storm this year. He seems to have all the pitching tools, emotional maturity etc to be a top five frontline starter. What's your take?
(John from CT)
Love Hunter Harvey. The Orioles have a stellar trio in Gausman, Bundy, and Harvey. With Gausman in the big leagues, I still like Bundy more than Harvey. I think people will start to realize that as he works back from TJ surgery. Harvey is a potential stud, though. A 2/3 starter with maybe a bit more in the tank, if you dream. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)With the idiotic demotion of KG, especially when he was pitching very well and the mishandling of many 1st rd arms(by rushing them or poorly developing them altogether), how can anyone really be head-over-heels infatuated with Hunter Harvey in Baltimore? He's got the stuff, but there's something fundamentally wrong when the Orioles rotation doesn't contain 1 first-round arm in it's rotation.
(The Truth from Caverns of Greatness)
Give me talent over situation and organization. The cream rises to the top. Even though, yes, I do agree that Baltimore has made some questionable decisions regarding plenty of their top pitchers, I'm not inclined to think Harvey is going to bust because he's in Baltimore. If Harvey doesn't work out, it's not likely to be because of the organization he plays for. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Hunter Harvey is a safer bet at this point as compared to Appel?
(Chris from Baltimore)
This one is difficult to answer, which tells you all you need to know right now. But if Appel's main issue is he's tipping, then you can fix that and he becomes closer to what people thought he would be -- though I don't see a No. 1 or No. 2 starter -- but he will never hide the ball within his delivery. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)Any concern about Hunter Harvey? He got blasted again last night? Do you think Bundy gets a starting shot with O's this season?
(John from CT)
You always like to see results from minor leaguers, but a 19 year old in A ball has what the experts call time. I wouldn't worry about it. (Matthew Kory)
2014-05-29 19:30:00 (link to chat)Hey Ben, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Hmm, let's go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. Is this Craig? These are all guys who Craig loves. (Ben Carsley)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Could Hunter Harvey be among the top pitching prospects by years end? Is he already?
(nottes from MD)
I think the Harvey hype is going parabolic, and I'm cool with it. I absolutely love everything about the kid, and the fact that Ryan Parker and CJ Wittman are debating between him being plus and plus, plus pretty much tells you everything you need to know. He's an absolute bulldog on the mound, and shoves it every time he steps out there. He could have two pitches that border on plus plus, and I'm interested to see how the change up progression comes along. If you want to group him among the top pitching prospects, that's fine, especially if the top tier of guys who are close to the majors no longer qualify for prospect status. If they do, he's probably a second tier guy, but the ceiling is still that of a #2 starter long term. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Bret, what would your order be of these prospects you would want in a Dynasty League? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I'd go Harvey, McMahon, Reyes, Cordero, Mejia. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey is blowing a lot of people's minds. I was pretty psyched for him pre-draft (mayhaps on lineage alone), but this is some video game shit. Can he keep this up?
(Jonah from Redwood)
Sure. The stuff is legit. He will need to continue to refine his command and overall picthability, and that can take time. He will continue to dominate the A ball level, and won't face a serious challenge until he hits AA. (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Professor Parks, what would your order be of these prospects if you had them in your farm? Alexander Reyes, Hunter Harvey,Francisco Mejia, Franchy Cordero, Ryan McMahon?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Harvey, Reyes, Mejia, McMahon, Cordero (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Is Hunter Harvey a top 5 pitching prospect in the minors right now? I am very happy about 20 team to pass him up.
(Kevin from Baltimore)
I wouldn't go that high considering the more experienced talent in front of him. But he will get there. He's legit. (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Why Twins passed up "stud" Hunter Harvey and select "bust" Kohl Stewart? Was Stewart overrated?
(Nicky from Minnesota)
No. He was rated appropriately, and still is. Harvey was underrated by many and has made that very clear in his first full-season. But just because Harvey is blowing up the world doesn't mean Stewart--who was selected ahead of him--is a bust. (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey - top 20 prospect in midseason rankings?
(Sam from St Louis)
Haven't put them together yet. Seems high but possible if he keeps it up and the scouting continues to back up the stats. (Jason Parks)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)In a Dynasty league - Hunter Harvey or Brady Aiken?
(Eddie from Cali)
McClane refuses to return them, causing Gruber to execute Ellis. While checking the explosives attached to the roof, Gruber is confronted by McClane. Gruber passes himself off as an escaped hostage and is given a gun by McClane. Gruber attempts to shoot McClane but finds that the gun is unloaded. Before McClane can act, Karl, Franco, and Fritz arrive. McClane kills Fritz and Franco, but is forced to flee, leaving the detonators behind. (Jason Parks)
2014-05-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey is__________?
(Ryan from Baltimore)
going to be very good, but you'll have to be patient. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-22 20:00:00 (link to chat)Long term: Luc Giolito or Hunter Harvey?
(Burt Macklin from FBI )
If we were a magic 8 ball, we'd say something about things being hazy and asking again later, but right now we lean slightly towards Giolito. I think both are guys we aren't (personally) likely to end up with because even the best A ball pitching pitching prospects are difficult to keep in the Scoresheet format. (Scoresheet Chat with Ben, Jared, and Ian)
2014-04-17 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Hunter Harvey better than we thought?
(John from CT)
He might be, but he might not be. How's that for an answer? He's undeniably good (18Ks, 4BBs in 17 IP), but we're talking about a 19-year-old in Single-A, so tempered expectations is my happy place. Also, the Orioles don't have what you might call an impressive track record when it comes to developing young pitching. I'm not sure how much that applies here, but it does apply at least somewhat. So, to sum up, Harvey = good (probably (I think) (unless he gets hurt) (or the Orioles mess him up))! (Matthew Kory)
2014-04-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Who would you rather have in a dynasty league, Hunter Harvey or Julio Urias? And why?
(Clarke H. from NY)
Hard to believe the answer is an 17-year-old when it comes to keepers in fantasy, but heís probably closer to the majors than is Harvey, and when it comes to keeper leagues, thatís always a huge factor. That said, Harvey has the higher ceiling. Itís important to remember with Urias that just because heís doing what heís doing at an incredibly young age, it doesnít raise his ceiling. Urias projects as a number two while Harvey could be an ace. The floor is higher on Urias because heís closer to the majors. Itís your call on what you want. (Jeff Moore)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey, has his performance in spring training and early season accelerated his ETA? Is there a better pitching prospect trio than in Baltimore w/ Gausman, Bundy and Harvey (not to mention Rodriguez)?
(Gordy from Torrance)
I think Harvey always had a legitimate chance to move quickly through Low-A, just because his stuff can be so dominating at times. I don't think he's ever truly been viewed as a raw high school arm, so any expectations that he would take a considerable amount of time to move through the minor leagues may have been misguided. I still think you're looking at a 2016 ETA, but that's damn impressive for a 2012 prep arm that was on the young side entering the draft. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Hunter Harvey make THE LEAP this year into the elite arms in the minors?
(kfazio from WV)
Yes, I think he does.

If the Orioles can manage to successfully develop the starters they have on their way through the minors -- Gausman, Bundy, Harvey, Rodriguez, at a minimum -- their rotation could be obscene. (Mark Anderson)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat. In your opinion, which hitter and pitcher, outside of the top 50, have the highest ceilings?
(cracker73 from Florida )
Alex Reyes, Jose Martinez, Braden Shipley, and Hunter Harvey on the pitching side; Nick Williams, Raimel Tapia, and David Dahl on the positional side of the ball. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you still typing one-handed when you think of Dylan Bundy, or have you clicked to another video? Or, in non-porn terms, are you still as high on him as ever?
(Johnny Utah from 50 Year Storm)
Based on reports from last season and this spring, my hands are busy thinking about Bundy's organizational teammate Hunter Harvey. Get ready for this monster. Its coming. (Jason Parks)
2014-03-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Hunter Harvey have the highest ceiling of any pitcher in the lower levels?
(Victor from Dumfries)
Giolito has him beat, but Harvey's ceiling is up there. I talked to some scouts who said they didn't get the hype surrounding Harvey, but then the hype just keeps getting better and better. And when I say hype, I mean hard, factual reports flowing through the back channels here at BP that I trust very much. He's legit. (Jeff Moore)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chances Hunter Harvey starts this year in Low-A?
(aceblack from PA)
I think that's where he should start (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-01-17 10:00:00 (link to chat)In a couple years, which 2013 draftee are teams gonna be sick they didn't draft earlier?
(tr from Mattress factory by the Goldsteins)
From the first round, McGuire, Shipley, Marco Gonzalez, and Hunter Harvey come to mind as guys that will be viewed as draft steals. (Jason Parks)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which 2013 draftees have improved their stock the most since the draft?
(Rich from Missouri)
It's pretty hard to argue with the excellent reviews on Hunter Harvey since the draft. There were a lot of questions about him entering the stretch run before the draft, and while there are still questions now, the scouts that saw him after signing were blown away. (Mark Anderson)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Top 5 dynasty prospects from this past draft?
(John from My basement)
Off the top of my head: Bryant, Frazier, Gray, Stewart, Appel. The fifth one was tough for me. I also really like JP Crawford, Braden Shipley, Hunter Harvey and Reese McGuire. The first four I'm a little more confident on. (Craig Goldstein)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)More promising potential: Braden Shipley or Hunter Harvey?
(Alex from Denver)
I'd take Harvey's ceiling, but also high on Shipley. (Jason Parks)

(huggirl from Joisey)
From that group, one pitcher will develop into a number two starter (or better). I was tempted to say 0. (Jason Parks)
2013-12-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Hunter Harvey could be a legitimate #1/ace type starter or is his ceiling strictly #2 (which I understand is not any kind of insult)?
(Tyler J from MD)
We projected him to be a number two starter (Jason Parks)

2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you have a good comp for Hunter Harvey? What kind of ceiling are we looking at here?

Could be a number two type if everything clicks. Chris Mellen loves the kid. We are going to blow him up in the rankings this year. (Jason Parks)

Since the draft? Absolutely. Hunter Harvey, Bobby Wahl and Devin Williams are a few guys whose prospect stock look significantly better than their draft slot. (Bret Sayre)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was skeptical of Orioles first rd pick Hunter Harvey out of the draft. However, he's been brilliant in his pro debut. What are your thoughts on the youngster?
(Biscuits from Cali)
Well, I have several reports on the kid, including glowing ones from BP's Chris Mellen. This kid is legit. We are going to blow him up in our 101 list this year, as he will probably be a top 25 prospect in baseball. His combination of attributes are very sexy. (Jason Parks)

(Cards from St. Louis)
Braden Shipley; Hunter Harvey; Edwin Diaz; Chi Chi Gonzalez

Just to name a few (Jason Parks)
2013-09-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey has had a very strong pro debut for the Orioles. How much of it is smoke and mirrors? Is his off-speed (changeup in particular) underrated, or is his heater to much for low-A hitters?
(biscuits from cali)
It's very legit. His heater is better than people realize and his secondary arsenal has plus projections. This guy is going to take a huge step forward next season. I trust Chris Mellen when it comes to talent evaluation (not much else because he's from Boston), and he blew the guy up. If Mellen loves him, bank on it. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Where in 100 ranking for Archie Bradley? Tyler Glasnow? Hunter Harvey? CJ Edwards? Thanks!
(Joe Bob from TX)
Ask Parks, that's his area. (Harry Pavlidis)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Hunter Harvey crack the top 100 prospects despite his limited pro career? Given Bundy's recent TJ surgery, does Harvey move ahead of him on the O's prospect list?
(Jay from Madison)
We haven't discussed the top 100 internally at BP yet, but there's a good chance of that. Your second question: I'd at least still go Bundy. I know people like to knock TJ surgery guys down on the rankings (and we've been guilty of doing it as well), but the recovery rate is so good these days that I think they can get penalized too much (rankings-wise). I'll still go Bundy. (Jason Cole)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Have you seen Hunter Harvey pitch this season? What are your thoughts on him?
(gphelp77 from Chicago)
I have not. (Jason Cole)
