Seen at his best, Harris looks like a second or third-round pick with a whippy fast arm and excellent flexibility, but he's struggled to stay healthy and maintain that stuff. The lefty sits 92-95 mph on those great days. He had that kind of stuff when he shut down Louisiana State, allowing one unearned run in four innings. But he's missed some time with an oblique injury and has had other starts where he pitches with 4-5 mph less on his fastball. When he has good arm speed, his slider and changeup also flash above-average. He's able to manipulate and locate his slider, which helps it play up. Harris has had plenty of success--he's 4-1, 2.33 this year on the heels of posting a 2.66 ERA that was fifth-best in the Sun Belt Conference last season. His ability to battle with less than his best stuff bodes well for his chance to work in pro ball as a back-of-the-rotation starter.
