New York Yankees, Mets: Top Five Electric Arms In The Big Apple

4. Matt Harvey (SP-NYM)

For some reason Matt Harvey’s fourseamer generates more swings and misses than the average 96 miles per hour fastball.

Yes, between deGrom, Familia and Harvey, it’s a crapshoot when trying to rank each guy. Harvey though, gets the nod at the No. 4 spot due to his control perhaps being a tad lower than deGrom’s.

Matt still relies on power and deception to go along with his nasty stuff in getting by.

Being equipped with the normal starting pitcher arsenal – four-seam, straight change, straight curve, and slider – Harvey’s stuff is still top notch.
