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.

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey struck out eight batters over five innings for Low-A Delmarva on Friday, scattering two doubles and a hit batsman to allow one run.

Harvey threw 50 of his 71 pitches for strikes (70.4 percent) after not pitching for nearly two weeks. The Orioles have begun more actively managing Harvey's workload, as the 82 2/3 innings are likely the most he has ever thrown in a single year. Harvey will spend the rest of the season in Delmarva, then open 2015 with High-A Frederick. He could see time with the Orioles as soon as late-2016, with 2017 being the most likely.

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey allowed five hits, three walks, and two runs (one earned) over six innings while striking out eight batters for Low-A Delmarva on Saturday.

After being nearly unhittable through May, Harvey scuffled a bit in June, but has a solid season, as opposing batters have hit just .202/.305/.296 off him. He has the potential to be a true ace, but will need a few years to build arm strength while working on his secondary pitches and command.
Sun, Jul 6, 2014 11:50:00 AM

Orioles prospect RHP Hunter Harvey allowed three earned runs on four hits (two home runs) and struck out nine batters in 5 1/3 innings Sunday for Low-A Delmarva.

After allowing 11 earned runs on 13 hits and six walks in 6 2/3 innings between his first two starts this month, Harvey has been much sharper over his last two turns in the rotation, with a 3.18 ERA, seven hits allowed and 16-3 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 1/3 innings. Overall, the 19-year-old right-hander owns a 3.14 ERA, .200 opponents' batting average and 85-29 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 71 2/3 innings this season for Delmarva, and he's seemingly poised to receive a promotion to a more advanced level sometime soon.
Mon, Jun 30, 2014 05:07:00 PM

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey was hit hard for Low-A Delmarva on Wednesday, allowing four singles, three doubles, a home run, two walks, and five runs in 4 2/3 innings.

It was the first start in which he allowed more runs than strikeouts (3), and his second start in which he struck out fewer batters than innings pitched. Opposing batters have a .191/.300/.270 line against Harvey for the season, so he gets a pass on this clunker. Harvey will be one of five Delmarva Shorebirds who will be in the South Atlantic League All-Star game.
Thu, Jun 5, 2014 10:20:00 AM

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey threw six innings for Low-A Delmarva on Friday, scattering two singles and two walks while allowing one (unearned) run and striking out seven batters.

Harvey continued to dominate the Low-A South Atlantic League, and the 19-year old is currently second with 64 strikeouts. It would be nice to see a decrease in his walk rate, but his WHIP is 0.950 and he is averaging 3.4 BB/9, so it is not as if he is walking the world. If he continues to dominate, Harvey could be in line for a promotion to High-A Frederick later this summer.
