HUNTER HARVEY (Class AA Bowie, Md.)

Former Bandys High star Hunter Harvey, a right-hander sidelined since early June by an injury, was scheduled to resume throwing last Monday (Aug. 6).

There’s been no official indication when Harvey might next pitch for the Baysox.

He continues to be listed on Bowie’s roster and noted as being on a seven-day disabled list.

He was in Florida working out last month while recovering from a shoulder injury sustained while trying to maneuver away from a foul ball into the dugout on a day he was not pitching.

When he twisted to avoid being struck by the ball, his right shoulder popped out of socket.

He was scratched from his 10th start (June 8).

Harvey is 1-2 with 32 1/3 innings pitched. He’s allowed 36 hits, 20 runs (all earned), walked eight and struck out 30. His ERA is 5.57.

Bowie finished last in the first-half West Division of the Eastern League, 8 ½ games back of division winner Akron (Ohio).

Bowie improved to 57-64 in the Eastern League by beating Erie (Pa.) on the road before 3,977 on Friday night.
