2022 MLB Draft: Harrington consistently moved up draft lists all spring, benefitting from the rash of injuries that has greatly thinned the college starting pitching ranks, but more importantly he benefited by just being really good. An easy mover down the mound, Harrington repeats his delivery with great consistency. He offers a quality four-pitch arsenal that includes a heavy 90-95 fastball, a deceptive 82-86 changeup that flashed plus, a quality 79-82 slider with sharp tilt at times and spin rates in the 2500-2600s, and an occasional downer curve. Harrington has the rare combination of present pitchability along with plenty of projection remaining in his lean, super-athletic 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame. For the season Harrington posted a 2.53 ERA with 111 strikeouts vs 18 walks in 93 innings. With plus-plus control of four pitches he projects as a No. 3 or No. 4 starter in a Major League rotation and will likely be selected during the middle of Day One (picks 1-80).

On Friday a large scouting contingent was on hand to check in on Campbell's ace Harrington. While this outing may not have presented the scouts with the high end stuff he has shown in several outings this year, they did get to see a poised right-hander who competed with his stuff down a bit. His fastball ranged 90-95, sitting 92-93. Explosive, late run created soft contact early, moving to some swing and miss as he unveiled his change-up in the fourth inning with more consistency. The slider worked from a similar tunnel as the fastball at 82-85, flashing explosive sweep. Harrington lacked some of his trademark feel for the slider, and his curveball, adding and subtracting to the slider to get it over, and then used it to put away hitters. His change-up was the go-to pitch when there was any trouble. At 85-87 the hand speed provided a lot of deception as the ball tracked similar to the fastball, fading late to the arm side. As the change-up was used more, it got consistent swing/miss and added to the fastball's ability to miss bats. Harrington is closing in on his career high in innings, throwing 75.2 innings in 2021 and 72.1 total this season. As a high school prospect he was a late developer that never had a need to pile innings on his arm. As we move through the 2022 season, and closer to the draft, expect to see the righty work to peak his arsenal for a run deep into the postseason. A draft-eligible sophomore, the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Harrington has a rare combination of present pitchability along with plenty of projection remaining in his lean, athletic frame. And with feel for four pitches he projects as a No. 3 or No. 4 starter in a Major League rotation. He will likely be selected within the top 50 overall picks.

An easy mover down the mound, Harrington repeats his delivery with great consistency. After Maryland scratched out a run against him in the first inning on a walk, a stolen base, a throwing error and a sacrifice fly, he proceeded to retire 18 straight Terps from the end of the first into the seventh inning, finishing with a final line of 7 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 9 K. Harrington showed why he's ranked as a second-round draft prospect in our preseason Top 250, mixing with a quality four-pitch arsenal that included a heavy 90-94 fastball, a deceptive 82-86 changeup that flashed plus, a quality 79-82 slider with sharp tilt at times and spin rates in the 2500-2600s, and an occasional downer curve. Harrington has the rare combination of present pitchability along with plenty of projection remaining in his lean, super-athletic 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame.

Lanky 6-foot, 145 pounds.  Solid actions at short.  Soft hands with clean, quick exchanges.  Fluid feet and athleticism worked to an athletic, clean arm swing and high-¾ slot.  Accuracy and carry on the throws.  Arm topped at 83 mph across the diamond.  Hit right handed only.  Aggressive swings with looseness and athleticism.  Slightly crouched with varying leg kicks to a short stride.  Barrel wraps slightly on load.  Good weight shift to the front side, although the backside lacks aggression.  Level bat path works gap-to-gap with a fluid rhythm.  Barrel awareness can continue to improve.  Hitterish tendencies.  Ran a 7.76 sixty.
