A 6-foot-2, 210-pound lefthander, Fluharty has been a full-time reliever for three years with Liberty and has steadily improved his craft and performance in that time. During the 2022 spring, Fluharty turned in his best year yet, posting a 2.84 ERA over 26 appearances and 50.1 innings, with 83 strikeouts (37.9%) and just 10 walks (4.6 BB%). Nothing Fluharty throws is straight. He misses barrels and limits hard contact with a two-pitch mix that is led by a cutter that sits in the 89-91 mph range and gets up to 94 at peak. The pitch is far from overpowering velocity wise, but the movement and extreme horizontal break make it extremely difficult to square up. His only other pitch is a sweepy slider in the low 80s with big raw spin rates in the 2,500-2,800 rpm range. The slider generated whiffs at a 46% rate this spring. Fluharty is a definite reliever at the next level with just two pitches, but the cutter might be plus, and the slider could be above-average. Fluharty has also shown impressive command and is on the younger side for the college class—he doesn’t turn 21 until a month after the draft.
