By "staying in Florida to build up" hopefully they mean until his arm blows out.

If I'm watching a pitcher with a likely 6+ ERA, I'd rather it be a young guy with some tiny glimmer of hope for the future.

And one that wouldn’t be headed to prison via the trial over the death of a teammate for pedaling opioids had he not cut a deal with the prosecutors because they were more interested in going after the supplier.

 

It’s crazy, you always hear about teams taking on low-character people because they are talented and will help a team win. That’s clearly not the case here. Harvey checks the one and only box the Orioles care about…..”Will work for minimum wage.”

He's starting today in an extended spring training game against the Pirates.

Does he have to be on a team to serve an inevitable suspension? I wonder if they’re doing him a favor to let him get it out of the way.

The suspension retroactively begins on April 29, meaning Harvey will first be eligible to return in late June. He is not on the O’s 40-man roster.

 

Oh goodie.

Good. Worst case scenario we won't have to watch him until we're at least 30 games out.

I doubt he's ever pitching for the Orioles.  I'll stick with my first thought.

I certainly hope not. He shouldn’t be allowed near any of their affiliates either. To let him back in their clubhouse after what he confessed to would be reckless and reprehensible.

Saw Roch tweet that he's starting in Norfolk tonight.  Please don't ruin the great vibes of this team by bringing him back to the big leagues.

If it started April 29th then 60 games in Norfolk was done around yesterday. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him soon. Would rather not, but it’s always seemed like it was going to happen.

Harvey pitched well again tonight in Norfolk. 7 inn, 5h, 3 BB, 1ER, 5 K

For those that want to be annoyed that he will be up before long.

All the more reason to root for Watkins, Kremer, a strong return from Bradish, and them finding no takers for Lyles.
