Orioles optioned RHP Hunter Harvey to Double-A Bowie.
Harvey was called up on Monday, but didn't pitch in his two days with the Orioles and now will join the Double-A rotation. The 23-year-old hurler has the best stuff of any prospect in the Baltimore organization, but has been plagued with injuries since being drafted in the first round in 2014. Apr 11 - 4:12 PM

Orioles recalled RHP Hunter Harvey from Double-A Bowie.

Harvey had been slated to make his season debut for Bowie on Monday, but the O's bullpen needs a reinforcement and he's on the 40-man roster. The former top prospect has made just 13 appearances over the last two seasons because of arm problems but was dominant last year when able to toe the rubber. He's never pitched above Low-A.

Orioles optioned RHP Hunter Harvey to Double-A Bowie.

Harvey looked healthy this spring, which is a promising long-term thing for the O's, but the 23-year-old former first-round pick needs more minor league seasoning before he can be considered an option for the rotation in Baltimore. Harvey has made just 13 appearances over the last two seasons because of arm problems. He finished 2017 with Low-A Delmarva.

Hunter Harvey allowed two runs -- one earned -- over three innings Sunday in a Grapefruit League start against the Red Sox.

Mookie Betts tagged him for a solo homer in the bottom of the first and then Harvey committed a throwing error on a pickoff attempt in the bottom of the third that eventually led to the second run. The 23-year-old former top prospect will likely open the 2018 season at Double-A or Triple-A, but he could become a consideration for the Baltimore rotation relatively quickly if his health cooperates.
Mar 11 - 2:36 PM

Hunter Harvey yielded a run over two innings Tuesday as the Orioles defeated the Rays 2-1.

Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery in July 2016 and has pitched 31 innings in three seasons, so he's looking to make up for lost time now. Given his lack of experience, he'll likely need to spend all of 2018 in the minors. Still, he's really impressed with his stuff since coming back last year and he is 23 now; the Orioles might push him if he gets off to a good start.

Hunter Harvey (elbow) told Roch Kubatko of MASN on Monday that he feels "really good."

Harvey finally had some luck on the health front in the second half of the 2017 season and posted a dominant 0.96 ERA and 30/6 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings between three of the Orioles' lower-level minor league affiliates. "I feel really good so far," the former top prospect said Monday at the club's minicamp in Sarasota, Florida. "I’ve been throwing for about a month and it all feels good. My body’s feeling good. Everything’s feeling good so far." Harvey could move quickly through the Orioles' minor league system in 2018.

Orioles purchased the contract of RHP Hunter Harvey from Low-A Delmarva.

Harvey has had a terrible time with arm issues the last couple years but looked excellent in 2017 after returning from Tommy John surgery, holding a 0.96 ERA and 30/6 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings across three levels. He'll turn just 23 in a few weeks and will look to re-establish himself in 2018 as one of the best pitching prospects in baseball if he can stay healthy.

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey struck out four hitters in two innings on Wednesday for the short-season Gulf Coast League.

Harvey allowed three hits, but didn't allow a run and didn't walk anyone. Harvey's struggled to show a semblance of health in his time in the Baltimore system, but the talent is exceptional. It's very hard to trust, but he still has the highest upside of any pitcher in the system, and it's not all that close. He's at least worth monitoring.

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) will make his season debut Wednesday.

He's completed the long road back from Tommy John surgery. Harvey will have to show he's regained his pre-op form, but he was a top-100 prospect before going under the knife. The 22-year-old hasn't pitched past A-ball.

Hunter Harvey (elbow) threw a full bullpen session on Tuesday in Sarasota, Florida.

Harvey could begin pitching in minor league games by the end of June. The 22-year-old right-hander underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July.

Hunter Harvey (elbow) is scheduled to throw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Friday.

It's the latest step in Harvey's recovery from Tommy John surgery. The 22-year-old has made just 30 minor league appearances since joining the Orioles as a first-round pick in 2013. The Orioles are hoping he can return to game action by the end of the year.
Thu, May 4, 2017 05:50:00 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Wednesday that prospect right-hander Hunter Harvey (elbow) could be ready to pitch in a game by July.

That timeline would put him a year removed from his Tommy John surgery, so his rehab is going according to plan so far. Harvey was selected No. 22 overall by the Orioles back in 2013, but injuries have limited him to just 30 starts in pro ball. The good news is that he's still just 22 years old.

Hunter Harvey (elbow) could resume throwing next week.

Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow back in July, but the expectation is that he'll receive clearance Thursday to begin some light throwing next Monday. Barring any setbacks, he could progress to long tossing in a couple of months before working his way toward throwing off a mound. The 2013 first-round pick figures to be in rehab mode for most, if not all, of the 2017 season.

Hunter Harvey underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Tuesday.

The procedure went according to plan. Harvey will be sidelined for the next 12-18 months.

Hunter Harvey is scheduled to undergo Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on July 26.

The procedure will be done by Dr. Donald D’Alessandro in Charlotte, North Carolina. Harvey suffered a strained flexor mass last weekend in a start at Low-A Aberdeen and could now be sidelined until 2018. He was the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft but has logged just 30 appearances as a professional.
