Mets manager Terry Collins reacts to Matt Harvey's complaints
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/6/15) After a 4-3 loss on Sunday, Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey put some of the blame over his recent struggles on the team's six-man rotation. On Sunday, manager Terry Collins fired back and told Harvey to get over it, per MLB.com.
Collins ultimately said that Harvey and the other pitchers need to "get over it"
"They've got to," Collins said. "Matt knows that. I know he's frustrated by it, and he and I have talked about it. But you've got to come up and be creative between starts. I certainly understand it. I certainly do understand it. He's a tremendous competitor and he wants to be out there as much as he can on a regular basis. I guess the easiest way for me to say it is, 'Matt, we'll go back to a five-man, but I hope you enjoy watching the rest of the season sitting on the bench in September when we need you.' So we've got to make the adjustment."
Mets SP Matt Harvey no match for Greinke in Saturday loss
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/4/15) One might have assumed that Mets starter Matt Harvey had shed the inconsistency that had plagued him in late May and early June when he put together three successive strong performances.
But one might have assumed wrong.
Harvey needed to be on top of his game Saturday night against Dodgers stud Zack Greinke, but he was at the bottom. He gave up seven hits and walked five in five innings, leading to three runs. He fanned four along the way.
The right-hander, whose record fell to 7-6, gave up a solo home run to Adrian Gonzalez and RBI single to Alberto Callaspo in a fifth inning that all but doomed his team to defeat.
"Against a guy like [Greinke], three runs is too many," Harvey said, per MLB.com. "Only going five isn't acceptable. For me, it had nothing to do with who I was facing. It was just about finding a rhythm, and I wasn't able to do that."
Mets SP Matt Harvey allows one run in no-decision Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/27/15) Mets ace Matt Harvey was left with a tough no-decision on Saturday, despite limiting the Reds to one run over six innings. Harvey walked two and struck out three, but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning, despite having just 90 pitches under his belt.
Harvey allowed an RBI single to Brandon Phillips in the fifth inning for his only blemish.
The game was suspended due to rain, and will be concluded prior to the scheduled game on Sunday afternoon.
Mets going to six-man rotation, Steven Matz to debut Sunday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) Mets starting pitcher prospect Steven Matz will make his MLB debut Sunday against the Reds, general manager Sandy Alderson announced Friday.
Alderson also said the team will go to a six-man rotation for the "foreseeable future," as Matz will join a rotation that features Bartolo Colon, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.
"They're on board," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "As Sandy alluded to, certainly this is in their best interest, a few of them. At the time we did it before things were moving pretty good, guys were pitching pretty well. We went back, we changed it, couple guys didn't pitch all that good even on regular rest.
"They understand we're going to give this a shot, we're going to take a good strong look at it. It's to benefit the whole organization, basically, so that we look up and everybody is pitching. We're not pushing guys back, we're not skipping, guys are out there and competing. That's what they want to do."
Matz's arrival means Niese will get bumped from Sunday to Tuesday against the Cubs.
Matz, who is considered a top-100 prospect by Baseball America (No. 33) and MLB.com (No. 66), went 7-4 with a 2.19 ERA at Triple-A Las Vegas. He totaled 94 strikeouts in 90 1/3 innings.
Since returning from Tommy John surgery in 2012, the left-hander is 24-20 with a 2.29 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 365 2/3 innings. He is striking out 9.4 batters per nine innings in his career.
Mets SP Matt Harvey gives up one run in loss on Sunday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/21/15) Mets ace Matt Harvey was solid, if not outstanding on Sunday, but he was left with a tough-luck loss in a 1-0 defeat to the Braves on Sunday. Harvey pitched a gem, allowing just one run on six hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out five, needing a season-high 115 pitches to complete the outing.
"I know our bullpen was pretty tired," Harvey said, per MLB.com, "so I had to start finding the zone a little bit more, start attacking a little bit better, and I was able to do that."
Harvey (7-5) was outdueled by Julio Teheran, as the Mets were able to muster all of one hit in support of their right-hander.
This makes back-to-back strong outings for Harvey, who had been looking more human recently. Harvey still sports a very fine 3.18 ERA this year.
"I think the work that we've been doing in between starts is definitely paying off," Harvey said. "[I] just have to keep that rolling, keep that going. [My] body feels great, everything feels fine right now."
He'll to continue the strong pitching in his next start, scheduled for Saturday at home against the Reds.
|2014 summary: Matt Harvey missed the entire season as he recovered from Tommy John surgery.|
Playing time status: Harvey is expected to be ready for spring training, and while he should begin the regular season in the Mets' rotation, he will likely have his turn in the rotation skipped at various points throughout the year. The Mets will aim to keep Harvey's workload under 200 innings.
2015 outlook: Even with an innings limit, Harvey has the potential to be a Fantasy ace. Pitchers coming back from Tommy John surgery always represents a risk, so owners shouldn't rely upon Harvey to be their top hurler, but he should slot in nicely as a No. 2 pitcher and one of the first 20 starters to come off the board.
