Drafted in the 13th round (395th overall) by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2008
A senior at Navy, Harris has been one of the top pitchers in the Patriot League for the past two years and entered this season as the league's top draft prospect. He has been a two-way standout for the Midshipmen, but he is strictly a pitcher for pro consideration. Blessed with an ideal pitcher's frame, Harris is athletic and consistently pitches in the low 90s. He has plus command of three pitches--fastball, slider and changeup--and all three have potential to be major league average. He sustained a minor shoulder separation in a pre-season intrasquad scrimmage after hitting a home run, tripping over first base and landing awkwardly on his right arm. He didn't make his first start until the end of March, but quickly regained form when he returned to action. Of more concern to teams is his military commitment, which is five years unless the Navy changes its mind. Some Navy athletes have served just two years active duty, but even that would drive Harris down draft boards. Naval officials were still considering options for Harris, who hoped to have an arrangement worked out by draft day. He would be a lock for the first five rounds on talent, but his service commitment makes him a huge question mark.
