  • Royals' Hunter Harvey: Dealt to Kansas City

    The Nationals traded Harvey to the Royals on Saturday in exchange for minor-league infielder Cayden Wallace and the 39th overall pick in the 2024 MLB Draft.

    Harvey was excellent to start the 2024 season, recording a 2.15 ERA and 34 strikeouts across 29.1 innings before June, but he has struggled since. He's surrendered a run in seven of 16 appearances since June 1, posting an 8.04 ERA during that stretch. The 29-year-old has 26 holds this season and could push for a high-leverage role with Kansas City. Per Pete Grathoff of The Kansas City Star, Harvey won't join the Royals in time for Sunday's series finale against the Red Sox.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Struggles continue Monday

    Harvey (2-4) took the loss Monday against the Mets, surrendering five runs (four earned) on three hits over two-thirds of an inning as the Nationals fell 9-7 in 10 innings.

    The final frame was a disaster for Harvey and the Nats -- after the right-hander hit Harrison Bader with a pitch, J.D. Martinez crushed a splitter over the heart of the plate for a three-run shot before extra-base hits by Tyrone Taylor and Francisco Alvarez chased Harvey from the game. The normally reliable set-up man has been tagged for eight earned runs in his last four appearances, and his ERA has more than doubled over the last month, going from 2.08 after an appearance June 2 to 4.24 following Monday's outing.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Blows first save of year

    Harvey (2-3) took the loss and blew the save in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Padres, coughing up four runs (three earned) on three hits and two walks over two-thirds of an inning.

    The right-hander is having a bumpy June, giving up runs in four of nine appearances en route to a 7.71 ERA, 2.14 WHIP and 10:6 K:BB in 9.1 innings. Monday's blown save was his first of the year though, and Harvey remains the Nationals' top set-up option ahead of closer Kyle Finnegan, having already racked up a career-high 23 holds. Should Washington become sellers at the trade deadline and send Finnegan to a contender, Harvey would almost certainly move into the ninth-inning role.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Falls apart Thursday

    Harvey (2-2) took the loss Thursday against Atlanta, coughing up three runs on four hits in an inning of relief.

    Taking the mound with the score tied 2-2, Harvey got two quick outs before the wheels came off, with the rally highlighted by Marcell Ozuna's two-run homer on a slider that caught too much of the plate. Harvey had been scored upon only once in his prior 10 appearances, and the long ball was just the second he's served up this season in 31.1 innings. The right-hander has been generally outstanding as the Nationals' top setup man, posting a 2.87 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 34:6 K:BB, and his 18 holds already has him one away from his career high.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Racks up 16th hold

    Harvey gave up a hit and struck out three over 1.1 scoreless innings Wednesday to record his 16th hold of the season in a win over Atlanta.

    The 29-year-old righty is second in the majors in holds behind the Cardinals' JoJo Romero, who has 18. Harvey has stayed healthy so far in 2024 and produced dominant numbers with a 2.22 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB through 28.1 innings, but he has yet to pick up a save due to Kyle Finnegan also remaining sharp as the Nationals' closer.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: No issues in return to mound

    Harvey (hand) struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday.

    The right-hander was removed from his last appearance Tuesday after being struck by a comebacker on his glove hand, but Harvey looked 100 percent Friday as he fired 16 of 20 pitches for strikes. The 29-year-old has been the Nationals' best reliever to begin the season, posting a 2.84 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 11:1 K:BB through 6.1 innings with a win and four holds in six appearances, but manager Dave Martinez has so far preferred using Harvey as his high-leverage relief ace while leaving Kyle Finnegan in the closer role.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Could be available Wednesday

    Harvey said his left hand is feeling much better and he could be available to pitch Wednesday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Harvey had to be removed from an appearance Tuesday after being struck by a comebacker in his glove hand, which he said caused him to lose feeling in his hand for 40 minutes. However, X-rays came back clean and it would appear Harvey should be fine. The Nationals have an off day Thursday, however, so it wouldn't be a surprise if Harvey is held out until Friday.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Suffers hand injury Tuesday

    Harvey was removed during his relief appearance in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Giants after being struck on the left hand by a comebacker, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    According to Mark Zuckerman of, X-rays on Harvey's non-throwing hand came back negative after it was struck by a 95-mph line drive off the bat of Mike Yastrzemski. After the Nationals were able to hold on for the win, Harvey was credited with his fourth hold of the season, striking out one over two-thirds of an inning. With an off day on tap Thursday, the Nationals could elect to stay away from Harvey in Wednesday's series finale in San Francisco, but the right-hander appears likely to avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Dazzles in second hold

    Harvey struck out four batters over 1.2 perfect innings to record his second hold of the season in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.

    Entering the game with one out in the seventh inning, the right-hander carved up the heart of Pittsburgh's order, with a soft liner back to Harvey from Jack Suwinski being the only ball put into play against him. Harvey got tagged for two runs in his first appearance of the season but has settled down quickly after that, and he sports a 6:1 K:BB through 3.2 innings. Kyle Finnegan is 2-for-3 in save chances so far, but Harvey could be pushing for ninth-inning work before long if he keeps dominating.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Dominant start to spring

    Harvey struck out two over 1.1 perfect innings of relief in Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets.

    The right-hander set career highs with 57 appearances and 60.2 innings in a mostly heathy 2023, and Harvey responded with a 2.82 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 28.5 percent strikeout rate to go along with 10 saves and 19 holds. He's looked just as dominant this spring, posting a 9:1 K:BB through 5.1 innings, and he's on track for a high-leverage role in the Nationals' bullpen that could see him take over full-time closing duties at some point rather than sharing the ninth inning with Kyle Finnegan.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Agrees to deal with Nats

    Harvey agreed to a contract with the Nationals on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    The details of the deal were not disclosed. Harvey finished the 2023 season with 10 saves -- the first of his career -- and maintained a 2.82 ERA and 0.94 WHIP to go along with a 67:13 K:BB across 60.2 innings. That strong showing should keep him locked into a high-leverage role to begin 2024, potentially sharing saves with Kyle Finnegan.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Collects 10th save

    Harvey picked up the save Friday in Miami, allowing one hit and striking out one to preserve a 7-4 win.

    Kyle Finnegan could have been unavailable after throwing 31 pitches to notch a save Thursday versus the Yankees. Harvey was handed the ball and converted the save without a sweat, retiring three straight after a leadoff single. It's his 10th save of the season but his first since coming off the injured list earlier this month following an elbow injury. Harvey's looked sharp since his return, spinning seven scoreless frames with an 8:1 K:BB. Finnegan has also been terrific and is still the favorite for saves down the stretch, but Harvey has been the Nats' best reliever when healthy.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Picks up hold Thursday

    Harvey gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless eighth inning Thursday to record his 12th hold of the season in a win over the Red Sox.

    Making his second appearance since being activated from the injured list earlier in the week, Harvey handled setup duties while Kyle Finnegan continues to close for the Nationals. With Finnegan having converted eight straight save chances over the last month or so, Harvey may not work back into the ninth-inning mix down the stretch, but his 2.98 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 47:12 K:BB through 42.1 innings on the season still give him fantasy value in deeper formats.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Activated from injured list

    Harvey (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Harvey will return to the Nationals' bullpen ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox after missing about four weeks with a right elbow strain. He'll probably operate mostly as a setup man down the stretch with Kyle Finnegan continuing to flourish in the closer role.
