(8/21/2013) Orioles prospect and top draft pick Hunter Harvey had an impressive debut at Class A Aberdeen Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
Harvey consistently hit 93-94 mph on the radar gun as he went 4 1/3 innings and allowed only one unearned run.
"When you're taking a pitcher in the first round, you're trying to identify that guy as a No. 1 or No. 2 starter. A top-of-the-rotation guy. And that's what he looked like," IronBirds manager Matt Merullo said of Harvey, who was selected with the 22nd overall pick.
Harvey allowed four base hits, of which two were infield singles. He had five strikeouts and threw 76 pitches.
