Kris Harvey


Hey everyone...

I'm new here, but I wanted to comment a little on a minor league pick up the Pirates made last month, Kris Harvey.

I live a few miles from Kris and his family and they both have coached my daughter in the facility near their home.

I wanted to give you some insight into Kris and why he is worthy of rooting for.

First, he has a great family. His dad is Bryan Harvey, one of the best closers in the league for a few years. His older sister has Angelman's Syndrome and the family has been very active in raising money for a cure. Kris' wife is the newly crowned Mrs. North Carolina.

Kris had a great career at Clemson, both as a pitcher and an everyday player (catcher). Great power and live arm. Started out hot in the minors, but had trouble with AA pitching. The Marlins then made him a pitcher. Has great "stuff", but tends to think too much and loses the strike zone.

He does not have the velocity he used to as I think he had rotator cuff survery pretty recently, Looks like he is throwing 93-94 mph. With a bit more control, he could really be a good long releiver with patience. He's 27 now, so its now or never.

Anyway, he is a hard worker, a good guy, and a potentially great pick up for the Bucs. Go Kris!
