Harvey made an impressive debut on Thursday night against the Diamondbacks, throwing 5.1 shutout innings while allowing only three hits and three walks. He struck out 11 hitters, and posted an impressive 17 percent swinging strike rate in his start. Harvey's stuff was very impressive as he averaged 94.9 mph with his fastball and recorded an 18 percent swinging strike rate with the pitch. Additionally, Harvey's slider had a 21 percent swinging strike rate and was the great equalizer. His change-up needs some work, and there is some concern about his command. However, his 60 percent first pitch strike percentage was strong for a MLB debut. He definitely has earned consideration as a pickup especially with starts at San Francisco and San Diego coming up.
