Harvey had a brief cameo in the majors in 2020 with the Kansas City Royals, a stint which saw him give up 15 earned runs in 11.2 innings. That came after he had supposedly impressed team officials.
The Orioles won’t be expecting much here, as Harvey hasn’t been at all effective since 2015. The pitcher turns 32 in March, so a turnaround is unlikely. The team is simply hoping to catch lightning in a bottle, much like they are with the signing of Felix Hernandez earlier in the offseason.
