Harvey (back) was returned from his rehab assignment after suffering a setback over the weekend, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Harvey was lit up in his rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Salt Lake, yielding eight runs on eight hits and two walks over 2.2 innings, and it has since been announced that he's still dealing with back issues. He'll likely undergo further evaluation before the Angels decide on the next step in his recovery process.
Manager Brad Ausmus said he would meet with Harvey (back) this week before the Angels determine the next step for the right-hander, who made his first rehab start for Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. "I'm not overly concerned about [Harvey's] results," Ausmus said. "I'm more wanting to talk to Harvey, see how he felt. It's tough to look at a line score and determine exactly what went on."
It's often fair to dismiss the box-score results for most pitchers from their rehab assignments, but Harvey may not be as deserving of the benefit of the doubt, considering he had posted a 7.50 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 10 starts with the Angels when ostensibly healthy earlier in the season. He showed little improvement in his first outing with Salt Lake, yielding eight runs on eight hits and two walks in 2.2 innings while sporting a fastball that hovered around the 90 mile-per-hour range. At this point, it's difficult for the Angels to justify handing Harvey a rotation spot once he's activated from the 10-day injured list, so expect the organization to push back the tough decision by having the 30-year-old make at least one more rehab appearance.
Harvey (back) will make a rehab start Saturday at Triple-A Salt Lake, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Harvey hasn't endured any symptoms of the back strain that landed him on the injured list in late May, and his setback-free bullpen session Tuesday cleared the way for the rehab stint. Assuming he'll require only one rehab outing, the 30-year-old could return during next week's four-game series at Tampa Bay, which begins June 13.
Harvey (back) completed a bullpen session Tuesday and will next face live hitters, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Harvey said earlier in the day he feels healthy and hasn't dealt with any symptoms since landing on the injured list. According to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, manager Brad Ausmus believes the veteran right-hander will probably require a rehab assignment, which likely means he won't return to the majors for at least another couple weeks.
Harvey (back) stated that he feels healthy, though he's unsure if he'll need a rehab assignment prior to returning from the injured list, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Harvey was moved to the injured list May 25 due to an upper-back strain, but he appears to be nearing a return to action. He claims that he's been symptom-free since being placed on the shelf.
