Drafted in the 3rd round (97th overall) by the Atlanta Braves in 2003 (signed for $395,000)
Harrison likely will get drafted ahead of Bard because he's expected to sign if he gets drafted in the first five rounds. He has some advantages over Bard: he's a little bigger (6-foot-4, 185 pounds), lefthanded and has more feel for pitching. He was only a mild prospect entering 2003, but then his fastball jumped from 85-86 mph to 88-93. He has a hard, slurvy breaking ball and an average changeup. The combination has been too much for his opponents, as he has thrown a perfect game and a no-hitter and has two other contests where he didn't permit a ball to be hit out of the infield. Though he's lanky, he's more athletic than he looks.
