When Hunter Harvey’s velocity fell off a cliff in the fourth inning of his final 2014 start in Rome, it was nothing out of the ordinary. It’s not the first time a top prospect lost steam and fizzled in Single-A. Jose Campos did it with the Yankees last season. It happened to Tyler Matzek multiple times in 2010-2011. In general, the pitchers who maintain velocity throughout a start are the ones to really watch. This is why Harvey’s precipitous drop was surprising given his standing as one of the best pitching prospects in baseball.
