      Matt Harvey (lat) signed a minor-league contract with the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.Harvey missed the final few weeks of the 2020 season due to a right lat strain, but he'll presumably compete for a big-league roster spot during spring training in 2021. The 31-year-old made seven appearances (four starts) for the Royals last year, posting an 11.57 ERA and 2.74 WHIP over 11.2 innings.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Shifts to 45-day IL

      Matt Harvey (lat) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Wednesday.The veteran right-hander was already ruled out for the season with the right lat strain, so the move is just procedural to clear a spot on Kansas City's 40-man roster. Harvey posted an 11.57 ERA, 2.74 WHIP and 10:5 K:BB over 11.2 innings before going down with the injury.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Out for season with lat strain

      The Kansas City Royals placed Matt Harvey on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a right lat strain.Harvey's injury had previously been deemed right posterior shoulder discomfort, but a different label for the injury was provided when Kansas City announced his move to the IL. In any case, the injury will sideline Harvey for the remainder of the season, as the 20-29 Royals would need a miracle to reach the playoffs. Over his seven appearances (four starts) with Kansas City, Harvey posted an 11.57 ERA and 2.74 WHIP across 11.2 innings.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Headed to bullpen

      Matt Harvey will move into the bullpen going forward, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.Harvey has turned things around during his last two appearances after struggling mightily to begin the season, but he'll transition to the bullpen with Carlos Hernandez (abdomen) starting for the Kansas City Royals on Saturday. It's unclear whether the Royals will continue to utilize a six-man rotation or if they'll use five starters for the remainder of the season. Harvey carries an 11.70 ERA and 2.70 WHIP over 10 innings during five appearances (four starts) this year.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Surrenders one earned run

      Matt Harvey (0-3) allowed one earned run on four hits and no walks while striking out two across 2.1 innings to take the loss Sunday against the White Sox.Harvey improved upon his last start as he kept the ball in the yard and also managed to rack up 10 called strikes and three swinging strikes across 40 total pitches. It remains to be seen whether Harvey will stick in the rotation, as the team has been utilizing six starters. He hasn't earned a significant role with his performance to this point, compiling a 11.70 ERA with an 8:5 K:BB across 10 innings.

      Matt Harvey (0-2) allowed five earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out none across 1.1 innings to take the loss Tuesday against Cleveland.Harvey surrendered three home runs in his brief outing, with two of the first five hitters he faced taking him yard. Though 11 batters came to the plate, Harvey managed just four outs before being yanked from the contest. The team's plans for Harvey going forward remain unclear -- particularly after this performance -- though if he gets another start it would likely come Monday in a rematch against Cleveland.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Getting at least one more start

      Matt Harvey will remain in the rotation for at least one more start and will take the hill Tuesday against Cleveland, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.The veteran showed no signs of reversing his long decline through his first two starts for his new team, allowing seven runs on nine hits in just 5.2 innings of work. The Kansas City Royals will go with a six-man rotation for now, but they have little incentive to give Harvey too many more chances.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Fails to complete three innings

      Matt Harvey allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 2.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Tuesday.This was an ugly outing and manager Mike Matheny had a quick hook, lifting Harvey after 54 pitches. That decision to lift Harvey early paid off as six relievers combined to shut the Cardinals out the rest of the way in Kansas City's comeback win. Harvey now has an 11.12 ERA and may be headed to the bullpen (or off the roster) with Jakob Junis (back) slated to return to the rotation Wednesday.

      Royals' Matt Harvey: Gets another start

      Matt Harvey is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Cardinals in St. Louis, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.Kansas City will grant Harvey another turn through the rotation despite his underwhelming showing in his team debut versus the Reds last week, when he threw 33 of his 54 pitches for strikes and was charged with three runs on four hits and two walks over three innings. He should be able to work a little deeper Tuesday if he can be more economical with his pitch count, but Harvey may need a better showing if he hopes to stick in the rotation beyond this week. Jakob Junis (back) appears set to return from the injured list as soon as Wednesday, and he could bump Harvey to the bullpen or off the active roster if Kansas City wants to stick with a five-man starting staff.
