Post game quotes
I just don’t think he’s real confident throwing the ball. Didn’t seem real confident challenging the strike zone with his stuff. It’s normal. We have a couple more weeks, he’ll get the ball a couple more times. Feel confident he’ll make some strides and be ready.”
*The Orioles aren’t overly concerned about Hunter Harvey’s injury, since it shortens up Harvey’s season anyhow.
“If there is actually such a thing as a good [injury],” manager Buck Showalter said. “It’s not-displaced, hairline and he was only going to throw about X number of innings anyway so now we can just let him go when he gets back. So I don’t look at it as anything, It kind of keeps us from having to break up his season, there’s a half-full (opinion) for you.”
Showalter said Harvey hit 98 mph in that inning on Saturday.
“He’s in a good place, so freshen up his arm a little bit and get him back out there in four to six weeks,” he said. It’s the definition of hairline. You have to really look for it. I don’t know why they went with a CT scan. He must have had some point tenderness today or something. Most of those things, some people pitch with them, play with them. Just not a good idea right now because then it may become displaced. So just put him in a boot and he’ll be ready to go.”
