The Baltimore Orioles, who came from behind to beat the New York Yankees 8-7 in the Bronx on Sunday, will now turn their attention to their #4 Top Prospect, RHP Hunter Harvey.

Harvey was drafted in the 1st round of the 2013 June MLB Draft out of Bandys High School in Catawba, NC. In 2013, he spent his summer with the Gulf Coast League (Rookie) and then in the New York Penn League (Low A) and combined was 0-1, with a 1.78 ERA through eight starts.

In 2014, the son of former major leaguer and two-time All-Star, Bryan Harvey, finished 7-5, with a 3.18 ERA through 17 starts and 108 strikeouts in 87.2 innings with the Delmarva Shorebirds of the South Atlantic League (Class-A Full Season).

After losing 2015 and part of 2016 due to injury, Harvey was back on track starting in five games from mid June to early July between the Gulf Coast League and the New York Penn League.

In 2017, Harvey saw limited action, starting just eight games, while posting a 0-1 record, and a 0.96 ERA, with 30 strikeouts in 18.2 innings.

During this past spring training with the big club, Harvey started three games, posting a 1-0 record, a 3.86 ERA and seven strikeouts through seven innings.

After his five year journey through the Orioles Minor League system, the 23-year old has gotten the call to the majors and will be available in the bullpen.

Congrats to Harvey on getting the call to the bigs, we wish him well.
