WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former Bandys High ace Hunter Harvey had not been cleared to return to throwing for the Washington Nationals through Thursday.
Harvey was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a forearm strain in April 21 and reports say he is working out with the team but not yet given the OK to resume throwing.
The Nationals are at home this weekend against Houston then go to Florida for a series and then to Milwaukee late next week.
A report by Jessica Camerato of MLB.com this week said there is no clear indication when Harvey will be cleared to get back to his normal pitching routine.
He spent about five days in Triple A after the Nationals claimed him off waivers from San Francisco, and was then recalled to the major leagues.
Harvey ended up with the Giants after being placed on waivers by the Baltimore Orioles. He was a first-round draft pick by the Orioles in 2013 (No. 22 overall) and has battled various injuries throughout his pro career.
