Mets' Starting Pitcher Matt Harvey Has Been Moved To the Bullpen

Adjust Comment Print

Mets: LHP Jason Vargas (broken right hand) is expected to make a minor league rehab start this weekend and could be recalled as soon as the following weekend. Harvey is the odd man out after posting a 6.00 ERA through his first four starts. There's a good chance that he'll eventually get another opportunity to start, and if his results start to match his peripherals, he could have a solid season. It's not yet known what the Mets' plans are for him in the bullpen.

"Right now, helping the team, the best thing I can do is go to the bullpen and get myself ready. and get back to where I can best help this team as a starter", he said. NY is also 11-4 in their last 15 Friday games and 0-4 in Syndergaard's last four Friday starts. He makes his 12 career start against the Braves in this contest.

I think of Mike Pelfrey and John Maine, even Pedro Martinez and Johan Santana, all of whom went through a similar cycle, during which each pitcher - despite previous success - always ended up spiraling down in to a post-game conversation centered around their personal situation.

In his most recent start, the Mets' 12-4 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Thursday, Harvey gave up six runs in his first three innings and none over the final three. But the Mets could not ignore the numbers - 0-2, with a 6.00 ERA. But can Harvey really get back on track?
