Harvey exited Wednesday's start against the Yankees after tweaking his knee, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports. Harvey did not factor into the decision of Wednesday's loss, allowing two runs on three hits and a pair of walks in four innings before exiting. The Orioles have a couple days coming up, meaning Harvey isn't scheduled to pitch again until Tuesday against the Tigers. Manager Brandon Hyde expressed optimism in the veteran righty's ability to make that start.
Harvey (6-10) picked up the win in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Tigers, allowing six hits over 6.1 scoreless innings. He struck out five without walking a batter. Only two baserunners got into scoring position against the right-hander, who has reeled off one of the most unlikely scoreless streaks in recent memory. Harvey hasn't given up a run in 18.1 innings over three starts since the All-Star break, winning all three while posting an 11:1 K:BB. None of his opponents during that stretch were particularly dangerous -- Washington, Detroit and Kansas City sit 15th, 16th and 24th respectively in wRC+ against righties -- but the 32-year-old was making even the weakest offenses look like juggernauts in the first half. He'll take a 6.20 ERA and 1.54 WHIP into his next outing.
Harvey (5-10) picked up the win in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Nationals, allowing only one hit over six scoreless innings. He struck out four without walking a batter. The right-hander has come out firing since the All-Star break, reeling off 12 straight shutout frames over two starts. However, it's a testament to how bad Harvey's been this year that the hot streak has lowered his ERA to only 6.65, and his 6:1 K:BB over those two outings suggests he's been more lucky than dominant.
Harvey (4-10) threw six shutout innings in a win over the Royals, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out two. Harvey had his best outing of the year against his former team. It was his first quality start since April 26 and his first win since May 1. The 32-year-old also needed only 74 pitches to get through six innings and likely could have been left in if the game was a bit more wide open. Harvey still owns an atrocious 7.13 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 63:27 K:BB over 82 innings. He's well past his glory days and shouldn't be considered as a viable fantasy option. He'll tentatively line up to face the Nationals next week.
Harvey (3-10) took the loss in Wednesday's 10-2 rout at the hands of the Blue Jays, surrendering six runs on nine hits and a walk in 3.2 innings. He struck out three. It was another awful outing for the 32-year-old, as Harvey lost his ninth straight decision while failing to complete five innings for the 11th time in 12 trips to the mound since that last victory on May 1. The right-hander will drag a 7.70 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 61:26 K:BB through 76 innings into the All-Star break.
