PITTSBURGH – Right handed pitcher Joseph Harvey (Audobon, Pa./Kennedy-Kenrick) was selected by the New York Yankees in the 19th round of the MLB Draft on Saturday afternoon.
“What an awesome feeling,” Harvey said. “It has been a crazy couple of days but everything came together today. I couldn’t really ask for anything more than being drafted by the New York Yankees.”
Harvey had a dominant junior campaign as he logged 71.1 innings while carrying a 2.90 ERA. He paced the team with 56 strikeouts.
In 15 appearances and 12 starts, Harvey allowed just 23 earned runs and only issued 16 walks the entire season. Harvey put together an unbelievable strand of 34.1 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run, while 27.1 of those innings were against nationally ranked opponents.
Harvey joins fellow redshirt junior pitcher Luke Curtis as Panthers in the 2014 MLB Draft class. The draft will continue throughout the weekend.
