Mets select Matt Harvey in draft

Posted: June 7, 2010 in Odds and Sods

With the seventh pick in the MLB draft, the Mets went with RHP Matt Harvey of North Carolina. I had heard they would go a number of directions with this pick (Zach Cox, Justin O’Conner), but this seems sensible to me. A right-handed power arm with projectable build (6-4, 225). I was actually hoping the Mets would take LHP Chris Sale, since he goes to Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers and seems like the real deal, but Harvey is a strong choice. Can always use more pitching.
