  • 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.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Return imminent

    Harvey (elbow) could be activated this upcoming week without needing a rehab assignment, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Harvey threw a bullpen session Sunday, which apparently went well enough that he could be activated early this upcoming week. While it's great news that Harvey is nearly ready to return, Kyle Finnegan has been excellent for the Nationals of late -- he has a 12-game scoreless streak going with seven saves since July 17. Harvey may return to a setup role or take on a share of the ninth-inning work.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Will throw to live hitters

    Harvey (elbow) is set to throw to live hitters Friday, Bobby Blanco of reports.

    The Nationals have been without their go-to ninth inning reliever for close to a month. Harvey was sent to the 15-day injured list on July 17 with a right elbow strain. When he faces live hitting Friday, he will pitch for three outs or between 20-to-25 pitches as he nears a return.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Lands on IL

    The Nationals placed Harvey on the 15-day injured list Monday with a right elbow strain, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Harvey felt soreness in both his forearm and triceps Saturday, and the Nationals have since identified his elbow as the main source of his discomfort. He's set to undergo additional imaging on his throwing arm in the near future, and once the results of an MRI are available, the Nationals could provide an updated timeline for his return. For the time being, Kyle Finnegan will likely operate as Washington's preferred ninth-inning option out of the bullpen. Left-handed reliever Joe La Sorsa was recalled from Triple-A Rochester to replace Harvey on the major-league roster.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Likely heading to injured list

    Harvey (forearm) will undergo an MRI on Monday and will likely require a trip to the injured list, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    Harvey felt soreness in his right forearm and triceps Saturday and underwent X-rays that came back negative. However, he'll return to Washington, D.C. for further imaging. The right-hander has an extensive injury history, so he'll likely have a few weeks to rest regardless of the results of Monday's tests. Assuming Harvey lands on the injured list, Kyle Finnegan will likely see increased save opportunities for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Battling forearm, triceps soreness

    Harvey felt soreness in his right forearm and triceps Saturday, but X-rays came back negative, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Initial tests didn't reveal anything concerning, but Dougherty suggests the Nationals will be "super, super careful" with Harvey given his extensive injury history. Harvey has emerged as the preferred endgamer for manager Davey Martinez in recent weeks. The skipper may have to turn back to Kyle Finnegan in the ninth until Harvey shows he's fully past this latest issue.

  • Nationals' Hunter Harvey: Grabs eighth save

    Harvey picked up the save Sunday, setting the Phillies down in order to seal a 5-4 win.

    Harvey seems to have a firm grasp on the closing job in Washington, as Kyle Finnegan pitched the eighth inning Sunday. The 28-year-old Harvey has delivered seven straight scoreless appearances (6.1 innings), allowing just two hits while punching out six in that span. He's now 8-for-13 in save chances with a 3.16 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 41:12 K:BB through 37 innings this season.
