Royals' Matt Harvey: Officially signs with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey signed a minor-league deal with the Royals on Tuesday, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

The 31-year-old is unlikely to be anything other than organizational depth for the Royals this season unless he unexpectedly impresses while throwing at the team's alternate training site. His lowest ERA in the last four years was a 4.86 mark back in 2016, and he struggled to an awful 7.09 mark in 12 starts for the Angels last year.

Royals' Matt Harvey: Nearing deal with Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey is close to signing a minor-league deal with the Royals, Jeffrey Flanagan of reports.

According to Flanagan, Harvey will report to the team's alternative camp site, where he will apparently focus on gearing up for the 2021 campaign. That said, as Jon Heyman of MLB Network notes, the Royals are currently down a pair of starters due to illness (Brad Keller and Jakob Junis), so Harvey could get a chance to work his way into the rotation in 2020. The right-hander spent time with the Angels in 2019 but struggled to a 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 59.2 innings before being cut loose.

Matt Harvey: No interest from Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets are not interested in a reunion with Harvey, Anthony DiComo of reports.

In a recent Q&A on, DiComo notes that the Mets were not interested in the veteran during the offseason, and that stance has not changed over the past several months. Harvey spent the start of last season with the Angels, but he was released in July amid struggles that included an ugly 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 59.2 total innings. Currently a free agent, Harvey may have to settle for a minor-league deal as he attempts to get his career back on track.

Matt Harvey: Recent workout with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey had a tryout with the Blue Jays sometime in the last "several weeks," Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The veteran right-hander began 2019 with the Angels but was released in July after posting a 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 12 starts (59.2 innings). He subsequently joined the A's on a minor-league deal and pitched at Triple-A, though he never made it to the big-league roster. The Blue Jays clearly didn't end up pulling the trigger, so Harvey will have to wait for another opportunity.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: No immediate call-up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey will not be joining the Athletics for the moment despite the fact Triple-A Las Vegas' season has concluded, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The veteran had recently transitioned to a reliever role with the Aviators and performed well in his first two appearances out of the bullpen. However, Harvey allowed three runs on four hits and a walk in Las Vegas' season-ending playoff loss to Sacramento on Sunday and will not get an immediate callup to the big-league club. Harvey is also not on the 40-man roster, so any promotion would also have a domino effect in terms of personnel. Moreover, with both Jesus Luzardo and Daniel Mengden earning promotions from the Triple-A level, manager Bob Melvin's roster is flush with pitching at the moment.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Solid first pair of relief stints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey fired two scoreless innings during which he allowed a hit and a walk while recording three strikeouts in his first two relief appearances for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday and Sunday.

So far, so good for Harvey in his new relief role, one that would be his ticket to any kind of majors return in 2019. The veteran right-hander could be an option out of the bullpen for manager Bob Melvin during the last couple of weeks of the season following the conclusion of the Aviators' postseason run if he continues to thrive in a relief capacity.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Doesn't opt out, will try bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey didn't opt out of his contract and could join Oakland's bullpen down the stretch, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Harvey had an opt-out clause Thursday, but he decided to stick with the Athletics in hopes of joining the team in September in a relief role. If the right-hander performs well out of the bullpen with Triple-A Las Vegas, he could get a look with the big club down the stretch, though the A's would need to clear a 40-man spot before promoting Harvey. He made three starts with Las Vegas before being shifted to a relief role, posting a 3.60 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB across 15 innings in those outings.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Impresses in first minor-league win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (1-2) struck out six and secured a victory in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Tacoma on Thursday, allowing two earned runs on three hits while not issuing any walks over six innings.

The highly efficient 69-pitch outing was only truly marred by Jaycob Brugman's second-inning solo home run. Otherwise, Harvey was largely a reasonable facsimile of his old self, notching 49 strikes while breezing through his six frames. If he can continue churning out a similar caliber of performance over his next couple of appearances for the Aviators, Harvey is likely to log time in the majors in September, either for the Athletics or another team that may entice him to utilize the opt-out clause built into his minor-league contract.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Working on mechanics at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey, who fired four scoreless innings for Triple-A Las Vegas during which he allowed two hits and struck out five against Albuquerque last Saturday, is working on refining his mechanics while with the Aviators, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "Any bad habit is going to take awhile to smooth out," he said. "I'm not back to my old self, and who knows when I'll get back there, but I've been able to throw a lot of bullpens and slow it down, not worry about impressing anyone, like during an offseason."

The 30-year-old right-hander's Athletics debut was certainly an encouraging one, especially considering it came in the pitcher-adverse conditions of the Pacific Coast League. Harvey joined the A's on Aug. 14 after being jettisoned by the Angels, with which he struggled to the tune of a 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 59.2 innings. Harvey's immediate future remains a bit murky, as the Aviators' regular season will conclude Sept. 2 and they are still fighting for a postseason spot. The veteran also has an opt-out clause if another big-league club comes calling before Las Vegas' campaign concludes, so there's a possibility he latches on with a third organization this season if he continues to impress in the minors and there's no spot for him in the Oakland rotation.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Joining Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey will likely start for Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Harvey linked up with the Athletics earlier in the week after parting ways with the Angels in mid-July. The veteran right-hander struggled during his time with Los Angeles, posting a 7.09 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 39:29 K:BB in 12 starts (59.2 innings). Harvey hasn't seen game action in close to a month, so he'll likely need to make one or more minor-league starts before the A's determine if (and how) he fits into their plans.

Athletics' Matt Harvey: Signing with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey signed a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Harvey was released by the Angels on July 21 and it's somewhat surprising it took this long for a team to take a flier on the veteran right-hander. The 30-year-old signed a one-year, $11 million contract with Los Angeles this offseason, but he posted an ugly 7.09 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 39:29 K:BB in 12 starts (59.2 innings). It's a low-risk move that garners some organizational depth for the A's, as Harvey is unlikely to see the majors without demonstrating tangible improvement in the minors.

Matt Harvey: Cut loose by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Angels requested unconditional release waivers on Harvey on Sunday.

They gave him a one-year, $11 million contract this past offseason, and Harvey proceeded to log a 7.09 ERA in 12 starts while being worth negative-0.3 fWAR. He will probably attempt to get another opportunity with a different club, but his days of fantasy relevance seem to be long gone.

Angels' Matt Harvey: DFA'd by Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey was designated for assignment by Los Angeles on Friday.

Harvey was lit up for six runs over six innings Thursday night against the Astros, and it's since become clear that this performance was the final straw. He'll head to the waiver wire after being booted off the 40-man roster, though it's unclear if he'll draw much interest after posting a 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP with a 39:29 K:BB over 59.2 frames this season.

Angels' Matt Harvey: Gets wild in loss to Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (3-5) suffered the loss against the Astros on Thursday, tossing six innings and giving up six runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out one.

Harvey was a victim of his own wildness against Houston, walking a season-high five batters -- three of whom came around to score. He also gave up a pair of solo home runs and managed to strike out only one batter for the fourth time this season. Harvey has played the part of Jekyll and Hyde this season, allowing two or fewer earned runs in six of his 12 starts while giving up six or more earned runs four times. Overall, he possesses an ugly 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP along with a disturbing 39:29 K:BB in 59.2 innings this season. He'll face a tough Dodgers offense Wednesday when he next toes the rubber.

Angels' Matt Harvey: Strong in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (3-4) allowed one run on four hits and three walks in 5.2 innings. He earned the win and struck out three in a 9-2 win over the Mariners on Saturday.

Harvey's return from a back injury -- he missed about seven weeks -- was one of his best starts of the season, though he still sports a 6.88 ERA and 1.49 WHIP over 53.2 innings this year. The 30-year-old will look to build on a positive start to the second half of the season when he takes the mound against a tougher opponent in the Astros on Thursday.

Angels' Matt Harvey: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list as expected ahead of his scheduled start Saturday against the Mariners.

Harvey has been out with a back injury since late May. He may have to improve significantly in the second half to keep his spot in the rotation, as he recorded a 7.50 ERA in 10 starts prior to the injury. Jarrett Parker was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

July 11, 2019 04:32 PM
Angels' Matt Harvey: Returning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (back) is listed as the Angels' probable starter for Saturday's game against the Mariners.

After missing close to two months with a back injury, Harvey is ready to return to the starting rotation. The right-hander's first attempt at a rehab assignment was scrapped due to a setback, but Harvey was able to make it through a pair of appearances earlier this month, most recently throwing 3.1 innings and 72 pitches (50 strikes) for Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday. If Harvey doesn't show improvement upon his return, he could be replaced on a full-time basis by Jaime Barria.

Angels' Matt Harvey: Back after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (back) will make another rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Sunday before returning to the big-league rotation after the All-Star break, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Harvey allowed two runs in a four-inning appearance for High-A Inland Empire on Tuesday. He'll be a regular member of the Angels' rotation in the second half, though he's at risk of losing his job if he can't improve on his 7.50 ERA from the first half of the season.

Angels' Matt Harvey: Rehab start on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (back) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

The minor-league affiliate has yet to be decided, but Harvey will nonetheless begin his rehab stint Tuesday. The 30-year-old started a rehab assignment in early June but suffered a setback. Harvey has been on the injured list since May 25 and could seemingly be ready to go shortly after the All-Star break, assuming all goes well in the minors.

June 28, 2019 10:36 PM
Angels' Matt Harvey: Rehab start coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harvey (back) will make a rehab start soon, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The rehab start will likely be the first of a few for Harvey, as he will look to build up his arm strength after his initial placement on the injured list May 25. He suffered a setback in his first attempt to return from the injury in early June, so it remains to be seen if he can prove healthy enough to return this time around.
