Angels starter Matt Harvey suffered a setback during a rehab assignment with Triple-A Salt Lake, The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya reports. Harvey reaggravated his upperback, which has manager Brad Ausmus “a little bit” concerned.
Harvey, 30, has been on the injured list since May 25 due to a strained upper back. He struggled mightily in 10 starts prior to the injury, registering a 7.50 ERA with 35 strikeouts and 21 walks across 48 innings.
If Harvey hadn’t suffered the setback, there was some thought that he would be able to rejoin the Angels’ rotation in mid-June, but he may have to set his sights on the end of the month or early July now.
