Agent Scott Boras in favor of Mets going to six-man rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) The reaction to the news that the Mets are going to a six-man rotation hasn't exactly been met with a welcoming response by the starters impacted by the news.
Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday it "was tough to convince" the starting pitchers of the team's plans, and Dillon Gee -- who is going to be the sixth man once he is activated off the disabled list -- didn't sound thrilled following his final rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton.
"It's fine. Whatever," Gee said of the six-man rotation, per the Press & Sun-Bulletin. "I mean, I'm pitching. That's the main thing I'm happy about so hopefully I'll do well and we'll go from there. It's probably going to be an adjustment for all of us, and something we're not really used to."
Well, one person who is backing the team's decision is agent Scott Boras, who represents starting pitcher Matt Harvey. The right-hander is in his first season back from Tommy John surgery.
"On a scenario where we're working on a long-term view of both Matt's interest and the Mets' interests, I'm glad the Mets are thinking of ways to surround Matt with a program when they can keep his innings in a very, very manageable way," Boras said, per NJ.com. "We know that pitchers after Tommy John, when they've had 160, 170 innings we know they've come back very effectively.
"Certainly with (Stephen) Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann, we've seen that program work effectively for those pitchers. I think that would be certainly a very prudent plan to look at for Matt Harvey as well."
Mets planning to use six-man rotation into August
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/27/15) Once Dillon Gee joins the Mets rotation after his last rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton, the team plans to go to a six-man rotation through at least early August, pitching coach Dan Warthen said Wednesday.
Warthen said the goal is to have the starters make roughly 30 starts instead of the usual 33 during the regular season. The team also wants to be conservative with some of the younger arms -- Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. The other two pitchers in the rotation are veterans Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese.
"It is better for the player. It's better for the organization, at least, until we get to where we feel like we have plenty of innings left in September and still have the possibility of innings left in October," Warthen said, per ESPN.
"Our No. 1 concern is our pitchers, and our pitchers staying healthy. We have some other [young] ones -- [prospect Steven] Matz is coming along. We're going to have Syndergaard here, deGrom here, Harvey here. Those are the guys who are the big concerns. As for the other guys, they have to go along with it. It's going to only prolong their careers. From the organization's standpoint, from my standpoint, I think it's a smart thing to do."
Mets SP Matt Harvey throws bullpen session, ready for Friday start
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/26/15) Mets starter Matt Harvey threw a bullpen session on Tuesday in advance of his scheduled start on Friday. No issues were reported and Harvey seems to be on track to make his next start, according to ESPN.com.
Harvey said he might be experiencing a "dead arm" period coming out of the worst start of his career on Saturday. But the right-hander looks good to go for Friday against the Marlins.
Mets' Collins to use six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Mets manager Terry Collins said Monday that pitcher Jacob deGrom is on an innings limit this season, The Star-Ledger reports. Collins also spoke about his plans to use a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee returns from the disabled list, saying that he told his pitchers it was to keep them fresh late in the year.
deGrom threw 178 1/3 innings last season, with a majority of them coming in the majors during his Rookie of the Year campaign. He's up to 55 2/3 innings this season through nine starts and owns a 2.75 ERA and 54:13 K:BB ratio.
The team is looking to limit the innings of deGrom, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard in the event of a possible playoff run, MLB.com reports.
"The six-man rotation, at this point, is in large part to manage innings, manage appearances, manage pitches," general manager Sandy Alderson said "There is always the risk that guys are getting too much rest. But at the same time, we don't want to run out of innings for any of our starting pitchers at the end of the season."
Mets pitcher Matt Harvey might be dealing with 'dead arm'
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) There might be an explanation for Mets pitcher Matt Harvey's worst start of his career. He could be experiencing a case of "dead arm," manager Terry Collins said per the N.Y. Daily News.
"I have not talked to Matt yet, but it looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens. This might help him to have an extra day to get him back on track," said Collins, referring to the Mets' day off Thursday. "He's going to pitch Friday with five days rest, be ready to go."
On Friday, the Mets are scheduled to play at home against the Miami Marlins.
The team expected these types of bumps in the road in his first season back from Tommy John surgery and didn't send him for further medical evaluation. On Saturday, Harvey gave up seven runs on six hits in four innings of work. The 8-2 loss was part of a three-game sweep the Mets suffered in Pittsburgh.
|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.
