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. Jul 30 - 5:00 PM

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.
Jul 19 - 11:25 AM

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.
Jul 6 - 11:50 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.
Jun 30 - 5:07 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.
Jun 5 - 10:20 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.
May 31 - 11:29 AM

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey tossed seven shutout innings on Monday, allowing one hit, walking one batter, and striking out ten for Low-A Delmarva.

Harvey needed only 83 pitches to shut down a Lakewood lineup that included J.P. Crawford and Carlos Tocci. Harvey bounced back from his worst start of the season, and currently has a 1.38 ERA, a 0.872 WHIP, and a 10.4 K/9 over 39 innings.
May 13 - 8:57 AM

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey struck out six on Monday for Low-A Delmarva.

Harvey allowed four hits, one walk, and four (unearned) run while needing just 85 pitches to get through six innings. Harvey has the potential to be the ace in a rotation that could include Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy, but he will need a lot of development before he can reach his potential.
May 6 - 9:17 AM

Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey struck out seven batters while throwing six shutout innings for Low-A Delmarva on Wednesday night.

Harvey allowed one hit and one walk, but hit two batters, throwing 60 of his 103 pitches for strikes as he locked horns with fellow elite pitching prospect Lucas Giolito. Harvey has allowed three runs, eight hits, and four walks while striking out 18 and hitting three batters in 17 innings this season. His fastball sits 92-94 mph, his curveball is 78-81 mph with a hard downward snap, and his changeup is 85 mph with downward sink. The front-line arsenal is there.
Apr 17 - 10:05 AM

Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Hunter Harvey pitched six shutout innings during his 2014 debut in Low-A Delmarva.

Harvey, the son of former big leaguer Bryan, has the potential to be an ace, which would form an amazing 1-2-3 with Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy. He struck out five, allowed four hits, and hit one batter. Watch Harvey closely, as he could end the season in High-A with a strong showing.
Apr 5 - 11:19 AM

Hunter Harvey will open the season with the Orioles' low Class-A Delmarva affiliate.

Harvey, the Orioles' first-round pick in the 2013 MLB Draft, is the latest in a line of high-upside O's prospects that includes Dylan Bundy and Kevin Gausman. Harvey is still probably at least two years away from reaching the majors, but the 19-year-old has the arm and ability to be exciting once he gets there.
Mar 28 - 6:10 PM

Orioles' first-round pick Hunter Harvey tossed a scoreless inning in his professional debut with the Gulf Coast Orioles on Friday.

Harvey allowed a hit and struck out one in the inning. Harvey, who is the son of former major league closer Bryan Harvey, is likely at least a couple of years away from contributing at the big league level.

Orioles agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Hunter Harvey.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun says the deal will be for the assigned slot value for the No. 22 pick of $1.9476 million. The son of former major league closer Bryan Harvey, Hunter will likely take a while to develop but has ample upside with a fastball that figures to sit in the mid-90s after he fills out.

Orioles drafted high school right-hander Hunter Harvey 22nd overall.

Hunter is the son of former major league closer Bryan Harvey. The hope is that Hunter will make it as a starter with his low-90s fastball, curveball and changeup, and he could add some velocity as he fills out. There's a lot of upside here.
