Orioles To Sign Hunter Harvey

The Orioles have agreed to terms with first-round draft pick Hunter Harvey, Steve Melewski of MASNsports.com tweets. Harvey, a high school pitcher from North Carolina, was the No. 22 overall pick in the draft. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun tweets that Harvey signed for exactly the bonus pool recommendation, which is just under $1.95MM. Harvey is advised by Beverly Hills Sports Council.

Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com ranked Harvey the No. 22 prospect in the draft, noting his projectable frame, 94-MPH fastball, and inconsistent, but promising, curveball and changeup. ESPN's Keith Law ranked Harvey the draft's No. 24 prospect, while Baseball America ranked Harvey No. 33. Harvey is the son of former big-league reliever Bryan Harvey.
