Player Outlook
To no one's surprise, Hunter Harvey once again spent time on the injured list in 2023. Fortunately, he only missed about 4 weeks with a right elbow strain and his health prevailed otherwise. In fact, Harvey turned in his finest season to date with career-high marks across multiple categories, including games played (57), innings (60.2), strikeouts (67), wins (4) and a team-leading 19 holds. His 0.94 WHIP was 7th-best among qualified relievers and he even got a chance to prove himself in the 9th inning with 10 saves. Statistically speaking, the 29-year-old was Washington's best reliever. His 98.3 mph fastball was still the star of his arsenal, but Harvey implemented a slider (14% usage) last season that was particularly effective against right-handed batters (.087 BAA). Health and performance permitting, Harvey has a chance to be called for more save chances in 2024 with Washington looking to take another step forward.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: No issues in return to mound

    Harvey (hand) struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday. The right-hander was removed from his last appearance Tuesday after being struck by a comebacker on his glove hand, but Harvey looked 100 percent Friday as he fired 16 of 20 pitches for strikes. The 29-year-old has been the Nationals' best reliever to begin the season, posting a 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB through 6.1 innings with a win and four holds in six appearances, but manager Dave Martinez has so far preferred using Harvey as his high-leverage relief ace while leaving Kyle Finnegan in the closer role.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Could be available Wednesday

    Harvey said his left hand is feeling much better and he could be available to pitch Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Harvey had to be removed from an appearance Tuesday after being struck by a comebacker in his glove hand, which he said caused him to lose feeling in his hand for 40 minutes. However, X-rays came back clean and it would appear Harvey should be fine. The Nationals have an off day Thursday, however, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Harvey is held out until Friday.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Suffers hand injury Tuesday

    Harvey was removed during his relief appearance in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Giants after being struck on the left hand by a comebacker, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. According to Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com, X-rays on Harvey's non-throwing hand came back negative after it was struck by a 95-mph line drive off the bat of Mike Yastrzemski. After the Nationals were able to hold on for the win, Harvey was credited with his fourth hold of the season, striking out one over two-thirds of an inning. With an off day on tap Thursday, the Nationals could elect to stay away from Harvey in Wednesday's series finale in San Francisco, but the right-hander appears likely to avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Dazzles in second hold

    Harvey struck out four batters over 1.2 perfect innings to record his second hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Pirates. Entering the game with one out in the seventh inning, the right-hander carved up the heart of Pittsburgh's order, with a soft liner back to Harvey from Jack Suwinski being the only ball put into play against him. Harvey got tagged for two runs in his first appearance of the season but has settled down quickly after that, and he sports a 6:1 K:BB through 3.2 innings. Kyle Finnegan is 2-for-3 in save chances so far, but Harvey could be pushing for ninth-inning work before long if he keeps dominating.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Dominant start to spring

    Harvey struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings of relief in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets. The right-hander set career highs with 57 appearances and 60.2 innings in a mostly heathy 2023, and Harvey responded with a 2.82 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 28.5 percent strikeout rate to go along with 10 saves and 19 holds. He's looked just as dominant this spring, posting a 9:1 K:BB through 5.1 innings, and he's on track for a high-leverage role in the Nationals' bullpen that could see him take over full-time closing duties at some point rather than sharing the ninth inning with Kyle Finnegan.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Agrees to deal with Nats

    Harvey agreed to a contract with the Nationals on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. The details of the deal were not disclosed. Harvey finished the 2023 season with 10 saves -- the first of his career -- and maintained a 2.82 ERA and 0.94 WHIP to go along with a 67:13 K:BB across 60.2 innings. That strong showing should keep him locked into a high-leverage role to begin 2024, potentially sharing saves with Kyle Finnegan.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Collects 10th save

    Harvey picked up the save Friday in Miami, allowing one hit and striking out one to preserve a 7-4 win. Kyle Finnegan could have been unavailable after throwing 31 pitches to notch a save Thursday versus the Yankees. Harvey was handed the ball and converted the save without a sweat, retiring three straight after a leadoff single. It's his 10th save of the season but his first since coming off the injured list earlier this month following an elbow injury. Harvey's looked sharp since his return, spinning seven scoreless frames with an 8:1 K:BB. Finnegan has also been terrific and is still the favorite for saves down the stretch, but Harvey has been the Nats' best reliever when healthy.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Picks up hold Thursday

    Harvey gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless eighth inning Thursday to record his 12th hold of the season in a win over the Red Sox. Making his second appearance since being activated from the injured list earlier in the week, Harvey handled setup duties while Kyle Finnegan continues to close for the Nationals. With Finnegan having converted eight straight save chances over the last month or so, Harvey may not work back into the ninth-inning mix down the stretch, but his 2.98 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 47:12 K:BB through 42.1 innings on the season still give him fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Activated from injured list

    Harvey (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Harvey will return to the Nationals' bullpen ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox after missing about four weeks with a right elbow strain. He'll probably operate mostly as a setup man down the stretch with Kyle Finnegan continuing to flourish in the closer role.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Return imminent

    Harvey (elbow) could be activated this upcoming week without needing a rehab assignment, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Harvey threw a bullpen session Sunday, which apparently went well enough that he could be activated early this upcoming week. While it's great news that Harvey is nearly ready to return, Kyle Finnegan has been excellent for the Nationals of late -- he has a 12-game scoreless streak going with seven saves since July 17. Harvey may return to a setup role or take on a share of the ninth-inning work.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Will throw to live hitters

    Harvey (elbow) is set to throw to live hitters Friday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports. The Nationals have been without their go-to ninth inning reliever for close to a month. Harvey was sent to the 15-day injured list on July 17 with a right elbow strain. When he faces live hitting Friday, he will pitch for three outs or between 20-to-25 pitches as he nears a return.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Likely heading to injured list

    Harvey (forearm) will undergo an MRI on Monday and will likely require a trip to the injured list, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Harvey felt soreness in his right forearm and triceps Saturday and underwent X-rays that came back negative. However, he'll return to Washington, D.C. for further imaging. The right-hander has an extensive injury history, so he'll likely have a few weeks to rest regardless of the results of Monday's tests. Assuming Harvey lands on the injured list, Kyle Finnegan will likely see increased save opportunities for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Battling forearm, triceps soreness

    Harvey felt soreness in his right forearm and triceps Saturday, but X-rays came back negative, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. Initial tests didn't reveal anything concerning, but Dougherty suggests the Nationals will be "super, super careful" with Harvey given his extensive injury history. Harvey has emerged as the preferred endgamer for manager Davey Martinez in recent weeks. The skipper may have to turn back to Kyle Finnegan in the ninth until Harvey shows he's fully past this latest issue.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Grabs eighth save

    Harvey picked up the save Sunday, setting the Phillies down in order to seal a 5-4 win. Harvey seems to have a firm grasp on the closing job in Washington, as Kyle Finnegan pitched the eighth inning Sunday. The 28-year-old Harvey has delivered seven straight scoreless appearances (6.1 innings), allowing just two hits while punching out six in that span. He's now 8-for-13 in save chances with a 3.16 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 41:12 K:BB through 37 innings this season.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Collects seventh save

    Harvey picked up the save Friday against Philadelphia, striking out two over a perfect inning. Harvey appears to have surpassed Kyle Finnegan as Washington's top closer, as the former has secured four straight saves while the latter hasn't had a save opportunity since blowing three straight in early June. Harvey hasn't allowed a run over his last six appearances (5.1 innings) and has a solid 6:1 K:BB during that stretch. Overall, he's 7-for-12 in save chances and sports a 3.25 ERA and 1.03 WHIP.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Collects sixth save

    Harvey picked up the save Wednesday against the Mariners, striking out two over one scoreless inning. Harvey entered the game with a three-run lead in the bottom of the ninth and immediately took care of business, striking out Teoscar Hernandez to open the frame before getting Cal Raleigh to go down swinging to close things out. The right-hander did basically all of his work with his four-seamer and has now converted each of his last three save opportunities. He also has not allowed a run over his last five appearances.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Secures fifth save

    Harvey struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the save in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Padres. Harvey has collected a save in each of his last two outings, though he had been tagged for four runs (three earned) in his three prior appearances. The right-hander is up to five saves this year, three of which have come since May 31. He has a 3.58 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 36:11 K:BB over 32.2 innings while adding five blown saves and 11 holds. Harvey is likely to continue to serve in the Nationals' closer committee, sharing ninth-inning work primarily with Kyle Finnegan.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Notches third save

    Harvey gave up a hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings Wednesday to record his third save of the season in a win over the Dodgers. Kyle Finnegan entered the game in the seventh inning with the Nationals ahead 5-4 and blew the lead, but a three-run rally in the top of the eighth set Harvey up for the save. The former Oriole had a roller-coaster May, blowing four of his seven save chances with a 4.20 ERA in 15 innings, but he also picked up two wins and four holds with a 19:3 K:BB. Harvey figures to remain in the high-leverage mix with Finnegan even if he doesn't become Washington's full-time closer.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Takes fourth blown save

    Harvey (2-2) blew the save and took the loss in Thursday's 8-6 defeat against the Padres. He allowed three runs on three hits while striking out two over one inning. After Kyle Finnegan worked the eighth inning to protect a 6-5 lead, Harvey allowed a pair of singles to start the ninth. He'd strike out the next two batters before Rougned Odor launched a three-run homer, handing Harvey his fourth blown save of the year. The right-hander had been pitching well prior to Thursday's outing, holding opponents scoreless in 11 of his previous 13 appearances. Harvey's ERA is up to 3.86 with a 0.99 WHIP and 28:7 K:BB over 23.1 innings this season. The Nationals are making an effort to try and ease the 28-year-old into a share of the closing duties, but it hasn't gone well -- Harvey is just 2-for-6 in converting save chances in May, and Finnegan remains the clear top option in the bullpen.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Secures second save

    Harvey picked up the save during Sunday's 6-4 win over the Tigers, tossing a perfect ninth inning with two strikeouts. Kyle Finnegan earned the save Saturday, tossing a perfect ninth with one strikeout, but Harvey was called upon Sunday to protect a two-run lead, even though the former was presumably available again after pitching just once over the previous four days. It was Harvey's first save chance since blowing back-to-back opportunities in mid-May, and he delivered the goods with a strong performance. Harvey's now 2-for-5 in save chances, while Finnegan is 9-for-11, but either one could get the call on any given day, diminishing both of their overall values in fantasy.
