Efficiency Among Matt Harvey's Many Strengths

Among Matt Harvey's many strengths this season is efficiency. Major-league pitchers this year throw an average of 16.3 pitches per inning. Harvey throws 15.2. So while a typical big-league pitcher would have tossed 134.8 innings while racking up Harvey's 2013 pitch count of 2,198, Harvey has squeezed 145 innings out of that same amount. It is like he's thrown an extra 10 innings for free. (Wall Street Journal)
