Voted the ACC Pitcher of the Year in 2016, Harrington is a prime example of the well-rounded, successful college pitcher who knows how to pitch with average stuff. Harrington posted a barely visible 0.29 ERA as a reliever as a sophomore and was a model of consistency again as a junior. As the Cardinals' Saturday starter, Harrington made it out of the fifth inning in each of his 14 regular season starts and allowed two or fewer earned runs in 12 of those 14 outings. Harrington succeeds with a two-pitch approach. He'll pitch at 88-91 mph, touching a few 92s and 93s early in the game. His fastball earns average grades because there's some deception and late life down in the zone. This year he's shown the ability to work inside and out with it. He pairs the fastball with an average slider that he can also throw both for strikes and as a chase offering. His changeup is well below-average, but he doesn't throw it very often. Pro teams could develop Harrington as a back-end starter with size (6-foot-2, 229 pounds) and durability, but his two-pitch fastball/slider combo could play up as a lefty reliever throwing in shorter stints.
