The Cincinnati recruit had a short outing on Friday April 23rd, but had nothing to do with his performance or results. The second ranked RHP in Indiana’s 2021 class and No. 267 ranked prospect in PBR’s overall 2021 rankings struck out six consecutive batters to start the game, before walking the leadoff batter in third, in which he was taken out of the game directly afterwards. Harker was a consistent 91-93 with a sharp 80-81 breaking ball that can be thrown for both a strike and for swing and miss. Harker was a standout performer at this year’s Super 60 providing some of the best TrackMan data in the class. At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds he shows excellent arm speed with deception. One of the biggest competitors in the class.

Last seen at the July 2020 Midwest ProCase throwing 93 across the infield, the 5-foot-11, 200 pounder pumped pure Wisconsin cheddar at the first-ever Super 60 in Milwaukee. Up to 95.42 mph per Trackman, Harker raised my eyebrows with his super quick arm and present average 86-87 mph changeup. He creates good deception with his excellent arm speed and pounded the lower half of the zone with this pitch. It has a chance to be a major weapon moving forward in his baseball career. Harker also showed a good feel to hard spin the baseball with a 81-82 breaking ball, adding a third future average-to-better pitch to his arsenal.

7/07/20

Physical bodied infielder with a long gather and release showed 70-grade arm strength (93 mph) across the diamond. Fair hands during pre-game I/O with solid range. Made a real nice backhand play during game action. Profiles best to 3B at the college level. Quick feet with above average acceleration during the sixty (6.87 seconds). In the batter’s box the 5-foot-11, 195-pound right-handed hitter showed good weight transfer with a still head and hit the ball out front during BP. Rolled over for a 5-3 and struck out looking during game action. Average length to contact (0.15 seconds) with a top level rotational acceleration score of 20.8 g. Average bat speed (93.4 max EV during BP) with a max peak hand speed of 23.5 mph.

9/21/19

The Cincinnati commit sat 86-89 with his fastball at Team Indiana's scout day with an above average breaking ball showing tight spin and sharp break; a potential swing and miss pitch at the next level. Arm speed is quick, repeats his delivery. 

2019 INDIANA STATE GAMES: Cincinnati commit. 5-foot-11, 180 pounder. Thursday sat 85-87, with a mid-70’s breaking ball. Arm speed is quick, simple, repeatable delivery. Offensivley, Harker has the ability to spray line drives to either side of the infield and stretch extra bases regularly. Level swing plane, average to above average bat speed, and some swagger. Defensively is clean with a good arm and the ability to throw from a couple different angles.

2/23/2019: Garrett Harker, RHP/3B, Lebanon HS, 2021, 5 foot 11, 175 pounds, showed great feel for the barrel at the plate using a barrel lift to get to a get separated launch position. Has bat speed as he posted an exit velo of 83 mph with a balanced approach, and will develop gap power over time. Showed good 3B/2B actions defensively with plenty of arm strength across the field. On the mound, Garrett throws from a mid ¾ slot and a shorter quick arm action. Fastball was 83-86 with some ASR. CH was a good pitch with fade action and sat 75-77. SL has tight spin and sharp break and sat 73-76. Delivery is simple and repeatable and arm is quick, should add velo as he matures. Harkur is a very good two-way talent and is a good get for the University of Cincinnati.

4/24/18:Very impressive outing on the night for the freshman. CG shutout 11 Ks, 5 hits, 3 walks. Pitches from higher 3/4 arm slot. Has good tempo to the plate, clean mechanics, quick arm stroke and repeats well for a '21. Shows good mound presence, worked out of a couple of jams including a bases loaded 1 out situation in the 5th. Opened up the game sitting 83-85 with his FB and held velo well over 4 innings and then worked more in the 80-82 range over the last 3 innings of his outing. Commanded the FB well mainly working on the outer half of the plate, but did show command to the inner half. FB showed cut action at times. Flashed two different shape breaking balls that were both advanced for age. Showed that he could spin them for strikes but also for swing and misses out of the zone. Spun a CB that was 11/5 shape and showed late hard action at 68-70. Also spun a slider that was 73-76 and a CH that showed fade at times but was mainly up in the zone at 75-77. Overall extremely impressive '21 right hander with advanced pitchability and off speed. Cincinnati commit.
