Harvey (elbow) is scheduled to throw at Baltimore's minicamp Wednesday, MASN Sports reports. Harvey has apparently begun a throwing program, as this will be his fifth time on the mound since being shut down in September. Earlier reports suggested he will be fine by spring training and it is encouraging to see him on a formal throwing program a month before that time.
Harvey (elbow) is rehabbing well and should be ready for spring training, according to GM Dave Duquette, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. While working his way back from a broken shin early in the year, Harvey began experiencing elbow tightness, which led to an extended shutdown period for the 2013 first-round pick. He started ramping things up later in the season, but renewed elbow discomfort forced him to shut it back down in mid-September. The O's seemed pleased with where Harvey is at, currently, though it's not entirely clear where Harvey stands in the rehab process.
Orioles pitcher Hunter Harvey (elbow) is scheduled to visit Dr. James Andrews on Oct. 5, Eduardo Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports. During the visit, the Orioles are expected to learn whether or not Harvey will require Tommy John surgery to address his chronic elbow discomfort, which sidelined him for the entire 2015 season. If such a procedure is necessarily, Harvey would likely be out of commission until 2017, putting a significant damper on his long-term outlook as a prospect.
Orioles pitcher Hunter Harvey has been shut down with elbow discomfort, MASN's Roch Kubatko reports. The highly touted pitching prospect has had chronic elbow issues since July 2014, and now a trip to visit Dr. James Andrews is on tap. The order of events here certainly leads one to believe Tommy John surgery could be on the table. This would be devastating as Harvey would then be on tap to go roughly three years without pitching in games -- a setback in his development that could take a good deal of his future potential off the table.
Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey will start a throwing program on Sunday, per MLB.com. Harvey was recovering from a fractured fibula when he suffered a strained flexor muscle in May. He was shut down for six weeks after getting a PRP injection on May 18.
