2017 Projections Review – Matt Harvey

This series or articles was way more fun to write back when we were covering pitchers. If a hitter didn’t match the projection, they typically performed better. The pitchers on the other hand have done way worse. Anyway, here’s Matt Harvey. I wonder how he did compared to projections (sarcasm).

Well. That was fun.

Harvey struggled. A lot.

Here’s what I’m taking from this projection review. Every projection, and there were a lot of them, all had Harvey bouncing back from his tough 2016 campaign. They were all wrong.

I was wrong.

The universe was wrong.
