 Biographical information
In 1990, with the Cubs 13 games under .500 at the all-star break, manager Don Zimmer decided to install a four-man rotation. Though it helped in the short run, as the team ended up making a (futile) charge at .500, and though Harkey pitched well for a while, he broke down and was never very good again. This is not to say Zimmer deserves the blame for what happened to Harkey, as he was a weak-armed pitcher, but this didn't help matters much.
Mike was the pitching coach in the San Diego Padres system for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in 2000, the Fort Wayne Wizards in 2001 and 2003, the Lake Elsinore Storm in 2002 and 2004, and the Mobile BayBears in 2005.
He spent 2006 with the Florida Marlins as Bullpen Coach under manager Joe Girardi and was the Iowa Cubs's pitching coach in 2007. In 2008, Girardi picked him to be his bullpen coach with the New York Yankees.
