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."
Sep 20 - 8:50 AM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said pitching prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) could pitch in the Arizona Fall League.

Harvey is set to throw another bullpen session on Thursday as he returns from elbow issues. If Harvey can avoid further problems he should be back on track for the start of 2016.
Aug 26 - 6:43 PM

Orioles prospect right-hander Hunter Harvey (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday.

Good news for Harvey, who has missed the entire season with elbow issues. As long as the 20-year-old continues to progress, he could pitch in the instructional league or the Arizona Fall League.
Aug 20 - 5:07 PM

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey will be shut down after experiencing recent elbow tightness.

Harvey had an MRI Wednesday that didn't show any structural damage, but he'll still get a second opinion. There's currently no timetable for his return to a mound, though Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he expects to see Harvey back this season. The top prospect's ongoing elbow issues are certainly concerning, but he's still got a very high ceiling when healthy.
May 13 - 10:14 PM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey will be examined by doctors Wednesday after feeling elbow tightness in his most recent extended spring training start.

Harvey has been out all season after suffering a stress fracture in his right shin during spring training. The top prospect also dealt with an elbow issue last season.
May 13 - 8:51 AM

Hunter Harvey (fibula) tossed three innings in an extended spring training game on Tuesday.

Harvey had been held out of game action for the last six weeks because of a fractured right fibula that he suffered near the end of spring training. The 20-year-old pitching prospect should be ready to join one of the Orioles' minor league affiliates in a couple weeks.
May 5 - 5:51 PM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey will be sidelined 4-6 weeks due to a fractured right fibula.

An X-ray came back negative, but a CT scan Sunday showed the small fracture. Harvey was injured when a comebacker hit him in the leg Saturday. He'll be on crutches for a month as a result of the injury. It will be a late start to the year for the 20-year-old, but he wasn't expected in Baltimore this year anyway.
Mar 22 - 2:08 PM

Hunter Harvey will undergo a CT scan on his right ankle Sunday.

Harvey was hit by a comebacker in Saturday's game, but X-rays taken after the game came back negative. The scan is likely just a precautionary measure for their highly touted pitching prospect. Harvey was sent to minor league camp earlier this week and he likely won't surface in Baltimore until 2016 at the earliest.
Mar 22 - 12:09 PM

Orioles reassigned RHP Hunter Harvey to minor league camp.

Harvey, a first-round pick from 2013, owns a 2.87 ERA with 11.1 K/9 and 3.3 BB/9 across his first 25 starts in pro ball. The 20-year-old is the O's best prospect outside of Dylan Bundy.
Mar 16 - 4:38 PM

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Monday that Hunter Harvey's workload in the minors will be limited this season so that he can help at the major league level.

Showalter and Co. think Harvey will be ready to contribute at the MLB level in the second half of the 2015 season, but he logged only 87 2/3 innings last summer at Low-A Delmarva so this is going to take some strategy. The young right-hander figures to make a bunch of three- and four-inning starts wherever he's sent for the first half. Harvey was the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.
Mar 16 - 12:54 PM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey said Monday that his right arm "feels great."

Harvey had to be shut down last July after being diagnosed with a strained flexor mass in his right elbow. He's been on a throwing program for a couple of weeks and everything has gone smoothly so far. The 20-year-old righty was the 22nd overall pick in the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft and owns a 2.87 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 11.1 K/9 over his first 113 minor league innings.
Jan 12 - 9:17 AM

Orioles prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) is expected to throw on the side during the team's upcoming minicamp.

He was cleared to resume throwing after a follow-up exam in December that included an MRI exam. Harvey was shut down in late July due to a strained right elbow after posting a 3.18 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 106/33 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings at Class-A Delmarva.

Jan 9 - 8:36 PM

Hunter Harvey has been shut down for the remainder of the 2014 season with a right elbow strain.

Harvey doesn't need surgery and the Orioles are just being overly careful with their first-round pick from 2013. The 19-year-old right-hander owns a 2.87 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 139/39 K/BB ratio through his first 113 innings as a pro. He should begin the 2015 season in High-A ball.
