    O's pitcher Hunter Harvey to see doctor next month

    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 shut down pitcher Hunter Harvey due to elbow issue

    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 RHPs Dylan Bundy, Hunter Harvey making progress

    A couple of pitching prospects are making progress in their recoveries for the Orioles. Righty Dylan Bundy , the fourth overall selection in 2011, hit 96 mph during his start on Wednesday for Double-A Bowie. Bundy is recovering from Tommy John surgery in 2013. "He threw the ball extremely well," Orioles director of player development Brian Graham said. "Had command of the fastball and his velocity was good. (Pitching coach) Alan Mills and (manager) Gary Kendall said that was the best they'd seen him. "His pitches are getting better, but I've said since the first day of spring training, 'Let's look up in June, middle of June and see where Dylan Bundy is.' That is a good indicator." Meanwhile, fellow right-hander Hunter Harvey , the team's first-round pick in 2013, was pitched two innings during an extended spring training game in Florida on Friday, according to MASNSports.com. Harvey suffered a slightl fracture in his left shin after being hit by a comebacker late in spring training. "There will be a progression with him," Graham said. "I think what we are going to do is two innings and then probably two starts at three innings and one start at four and one at five innings and then we'll get him out to a (full-season) club."
