Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey (hernia) threw off flat ground on Wednesday.

Harvey underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia at the beginning of May. He was expected to miss 4-6 weeks at the time of the surgery, putting him in line for a return to the minors at some point in June. Injuries have been a concern for the 21-year-old right-hander early in his professional development. He missed all of 2015 due to elbow woes and a broken leg.

Orioles prospect right-hander Hunter Harvey underwent hernia surgery on Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Harvey is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks. It's another tough break for the 21-year-old who missed the entire 2015 season with elbow issues. He still has huge upside, but he'll need to stay on the field to realize it. That just hasn't happened recently.
May 3 - 2:13 PM

Hunter Harvey needs surgery for a sports hernia and will be sidelined the next 4-6 weeks.

Harvey visited a specialist in Philadelphia on Monday after experiencing renewed groin discomfort. It's something he's been dealing with since late March. The former top prospect missed the entire 2015 season with a broken leg and elbow troubles, and he was shut down early in 2014. Baltimore's front office is hopeful Harvey can begin pitching in minor league games around July 1. He has impressive pro numbers, but the star is fading.

Hunter Harvey will see a specialist Monday in Philadelphia after feeling renewed groin discomfort.

Doctors will determine whether he needs sports hernia surgery. "The groin’s just not healing like it should," said manager Buck Showalter. "He’s had plenty of time" Hernia surgery usually requires a 4-6 week recovery. The top prospect missed all of last season while battling elbow issues.

Hunter Harvey (groin) tossed two innings Thursday in extended spring training.

Harvey recently had a setback with a groin injury, but the Orioles are now hoping that he'll be able to join a minor league affiliate soon. The 21-year-old is one of the team's top prospects, but he missed all of last season with forearm and elbow issues.

Hunter Harvey (groin) is scheduled to throw two innings Thursday at extended spring training.

It'll be his first live action since he suffered a setback with his groin in early April. Harvey, 21, will likely report to High-A ball once he's deemed healthy. The former first-round pick owns a shiny 2.87 ERA and 139/39 K/BB ratio in 113 professional innings.

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey has had a setback with his groin injury.

He's dealt with a strained groin since spring training and recently felt more discomfort. It's unclear how long Harvey will be sidelined.
Apr 10 - 11:59 AM

Orioles prospect right-hander Hunter Harvey (groin) is considered day-to-day.

Harvey strained his groin a minor league start on Wednesday. It sounds like things could have been worse, but the Orioles are going to make sure he's symptom-free before he pitches again. The 21-year-old missed all of last season with elbow and forearm issues.
Mar 30 - 2:31 PM

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey strained his groin during the third inning of a minor league start and will be evaluated further on Wednesday.

Harvey flew up prospect rankings prior to injuring his elbow in 2014. He was finally close to completing his rehab -- and reportedly flashed some big stuff this spring -- but this groin injury will once again delay his development. Still, the righty remains one of the Orioles' best prospects and could explode back onto the national scene at some point in 2016 if this latest injury doesn't prove too troublesome.
Mar 29 - 10:18 PM

Orioles reassigned RHP Hunter Harvey to minor league camp.

The cut comes one day after Harvey allowed five earned runs on three hits and two walks. The good news is that he's feeling healthy after an injury-plagued 2015. The 21-year-old remains one of the Orioles' top prospects.
Mar 14 - 5:50 PM

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) has been throwing for over a month without issue.

The young right-hander is now confident that he will not require surgery to correct the elbow and forearm troubles that plagued him in 2015. Harvey is at the Orioles' spring training complex in Sarasota, Florida this week for a minicamp and should carry a clean bill of health into Grapefruit League play. He'll be ticketed for a starting job in the lower minors if his health checks out.
Jan 11 - 10:11 AM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) will rest for the next 4-6 weeks before resuming a throwing program.

Harvey missed all of the season with elbow and forearm issues, but an MRI cleared him of any structural damage. He hopes to have a relatively normal offseason and enter spring training at 100 percent.

An MRI on Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey's right elbow and forearm came back negative.

The MRI was reviewed by Orioles orthopedist Dr. Michael Jacobs on Thursday, although Harvey will also visit Dr. James Andrews soon before he can be cleared to resume throwing. It's an encouraging development after it had looked like Harvey might be headed for Tommy John surgery. Harvey hasn't appeared in a game this season due to nagging woes with this pitching arm.

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey has been shut down with a recurrence of right elbow and forearm discomfort.

One of the top pitching prospects in the game, Harvey hasn't appeared in a game this season due to nagging woes with this pitching arm. He'll visit Dr. James Andrews and the fear is he might need Tommy John surgery, although manager Buck Showalter said that's not a given. "We'll see. Let it run its course," Showalter said. "I know more than I'm going to talk about here. We're hoping for a different result than what that type of thing normally makes you wonder about. It's been a long haul for him."
