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. Nov 20 - 7:06 PM

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.
Jul 16 - 10:08 AM

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.
May 30 - 4:55 PM

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.
May 4 - 5:50 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.
Mar 1 - 11:19 AM

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.

Hunter Harvey will have his right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews.

Usually not a good sign. Harvey left a start last weekend at Low-A Aberdeen with soreness in his right flexor mass and could now be facing Tommy John surgery. He has made just 30 total professional appearances since the O's took him 22nd overall in the 2013 MLB Draft.

Hunter Harvey (elbow) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

The Orioles prospect left Saturday's start with a right flexor mass injury, which can often be a precursor for ligament damage and even (gasp) Tommy John surgery. Harvey has had a really rough go of it this year. He needed almost two months to recover from sports hernia surgery and now he could be facing another lengthy absence. Injuries have limited the former No. 22 overall pick to only 30 career appearances in the minor leagues.

Hunter Harvey left Saturday's start for Low-A Aberdeen with right flexor mass soreness.

He lasted only 1 1/3 innings. Harvey missed most of the first half with a sports hernia and could be headed for another lengthy absence following Saturday's setback. The 2013 first-round pick has logged just 12 2/3 innings this year.

Hunter Harvey tossed two scoreless innings Saturday in his season debut for the Rookie-level Gulf Coast Orioles.

He finished with five strikeouts and didn't walk a batter. It was Harvey's first professional game in almost two years. The 21-year-old was once considered an elite prospect and still offers huge upside if he can stay healthy. The Orioles selected him 22nd overall in the 2013 draft after a dominant high school career in North Carolina.

Hunter Harvey (hernia) is scheduled to throw a batting practice session Tuesday in Sarasota, Florida.

Assuming all goes well, Harvey will throw two innings in a Gulf Coast League game on Saturday. The Orioles will bring him along slowly from there before having him move up to face more advanced competition. The 21-year-old missed the entire 2015 season with elbow issues and required hernia surgery last month.
Tue, Jun 21, 2016 09:18:00 AM

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.
