Top Prospect Alert - Ken Harvey

By Robert Sherry

Ken Harvey: The Kansas City Royals fifth round selection in the 1999 draft out of the University of Nebraska, Harvey was one of the best hitters anywhere in NCAA baseball and has continued doing so in his early career.

After leading all Division I batters with a .478 average, Harvey debuted last season at short-season Spokane and earned all-star honors by batting a league-leading .397 average with 8 home runs, 41 runs batted in, 17 doubles, 49 runs scored, 23 walks, 30 strikeouts, and 7 steals in 204 at-bats. This season, the 22-year-old again hit well in limited time at Single-A Wilmington (.335, 4 HR, 25 RBI, 10 2B, 20 R, 14 BB and 29 SO in 164 AB).

In the field at first base, Harvey his fielding is not up to his hitting. He needs further development here in order to be able to be a regular in Kansa City, but with his line drive swing, Harvey doesn't have to be a gold glover or anything like that as his bat should get him to the majors. Defense wil be what determines if he can be a regular in the field. In 2000, he had three errors at Wilmington. Otherwise, you always have the DH option available.

As long as he is healthy, I would say you could look for Harvery to debut for the Royals probably by late 2002 if everything works out.
