Biographical Information[edit]

The son of major leaguer Bryan Harvey, pitcher Hunter Harvey was selected #22 overall in the first round of the 2013 amateur draft out of high school by the Baltimore Orioles and scout Chris Gale. He soon signed for a bonus of almost $2 million and made his pro debut with the GCL Orioles on July 19th, throwing a scoreless inning against the GCL Rays. In 2014, he went 7-5, 3.18 in 18 starts for the Delmarva Shorebirds, striking out 106 in 87 2/3 innings.

His minor league career was interrupted when he missed the entire 2015 season with an injury, then only made 5 appearance in 2016 and 8 in 2017, never pitching at a higher level than the Class A South Atlantic League. In 2018, he played in AA for the first time, making 9 starts for the Bowie BaySox of the Eastern League and going 1-2, 5.57. That one win was his first one since 2014. He was back at Bowie to start 2019, and went 2-5, 5.19 in 14 games, being switched to the bullpen after 11 starts. At the end of June, he was promoted to the AAA Norfolk Tides, where he was a full-time reliever and went 1-1, 4.32 in 11 appearances. He was still striking out a lot of batters, combining for 83 in 75 2/3 over the two stops.

He was called up to the Show and made his major league debut with the Orioles on August 17, 2019, pitching the final inning of a 4-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox. He did not allow any runs and flashed triple digits on the radar gun in the game. He had been briefly called up the previous year but had not made an appearance in a game.

In addition to Harvey's father, his brother Kris Harvey and his uncle Dwayne Harvey played minor league ball.
