SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles top prospect Hunter Harvey left Tuesday's intrasquad game with a groin strain.

Harvey is scheduled to be re-evaluated by a doctor on Wednesday according to executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette. While it's unclear how serious the injury is, the Orioles are expected to be cautious with the 21-year-old right-hander, who missed all of last season.
