Harden in AAA
Harden worked five innings Saturday night in Edmonton, allowing six hits and three walks while striking out six. I don't have a pitch count, but the three walks in five frames is not an encouraging sign. As I state above, I'd be wary of Harden until he proves he can throw strikes at the big-league level. Long-term, every indication points to him being a star, if not a superstar. Short-term, don't be surprised if he struggles in the first half of the season. Doom-and-gloom aside, if you can, watch this guy pitch: his motion is smoother than Mark Prior's, he throws his fastball from 92-97 MPH, his splitter drops two feet, and the ball collapses if hitters make contact. None of that matters, however, if Harden can't throw strikes.
