by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/25/2015) Starter Matt Harvey was at the center of a big night for the Mets on Saturday night. Harvey, backed by 15 runs of support, held the Dodgers to two runs on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out four, as the Mets roughed up the Dodgers 15-2 on Saturday.

Harvey (9-7, 3.16 ERA) allowed a pair of solo home runs to Joc Pederson and Jimmy Rollins for the only damage to his ledger on the night. 

Harvey got in on the offensive fun as well, as he went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI. He has collected multiple RBI in three consecutive starts.

Harvey allowed five runs (four earned) on five hits over seven innings of work. He also struck out three and walked four. He is now 8-7 with a 3.19 ERA.

Harvey is 1-3 in his last five starts, but he has earned a quality start in three of those outings.


Mets set rotation plans for Nationals series


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) The Mets have finalized their rotation plans for the upcoming three-game series against the Nationals, which begins on Monday. Matt Harvey will open up the set, with 2015 All-Star Jacob deGrom going on Tuesday. 

Noah Syndergaard will wrap up the series in the Nation's Capital on Wednesday.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2015) The Mets finalized their rotation plans for the first series after the All-Star break. It was already announced Noah Syndergaard would open the series on Friday against the Cardinals, but he will be followed by Bartolo Colon and Jonathon Niese in the three-game set.

Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom will pitch in the second series after the break against the Nationals, which starts Monday. It is not known yet who will open the three-game series.


Mets SP Matt Harvey strikes out nine in win on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Mets right-hander Matt Harvey battled on Saturday, but came away with his eighth win of the season in the 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Harvey got off to a rough start, as he allowed a two-run home run to David Peralta with no outs in the first inning. But he settled in after that, as that would be the only damage he would allow. Harvey wound up going seven innings, allowing the two runs on five hits. He walked four and struck out nine, throwing 109 pitches on the afternoon.

Harvey also helped his own cause  at the plate in this one, as he blasted the first home run of his career, a two-run shot in the fifth inning to give the Mets a 3-2 lead. 

"I was swinging first pitch no matter what," Harvey said, per MLB.com. "The big thing going around now is that we [Mets pitchers] can rake. I wasn't doing my job very well. I think that might have helped the cause a little bit."

Harvey (8-6) finishes the first half of the season with a 3.07 ERA through 17 starts. He seems to have made a successful return from Tommy John surgery.


Mets manager Terry Collins reacts to Matt Harvey's complaints


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/6/2015) 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
(7/4/2015) 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
(6/27/2015) 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
(6/26/2015) 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
(6/21/2015) 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.


Mets P Matt Harvey throws 7 scoreless innings in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey pitched seven scoreless innings in Tuesday night's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays. 

Harvey was on point from the start and only gave up four hits. He struck out six batters and didn't allow a walk during his time on the mound. This was a much better outing than his previous start, when he gave up seven earned runs. 

Harvey now has a 3.32 ERA this season. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Braves. 


Mets alter rotation plans, Dillon Gee to start Sunday vs. Braves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) Dillon Gee is headed back to the Mets rotation for at least one start, as the team announced Friday he will start Sunday against the Braves. Noah Syndergaard, who was scheduled to start Sunday, has been pushed back to Monday against the Blue Jays.

Matt Harvey is now the probable pitcher for Tuesday, and he is expected to be followed in the rotation by Jonathon Niese, Bartolo Colon and Jacob deGrom.

The Mets are going to use a "light" six-man rotation, meaning they will slot in Gee when they can, according to ESPN.


Mets' Warthen: Matt Harvey 'pretty angry' following last start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) After an outstanding start to the season, Mets ace Matt Harvey has hit a rough patch. The 26-year-old hurler is 1-3 with a 7.20 ERA in his last four starts.

Harvey admits missing the 2014 season recovering from Tommy John surgery might be catching up to him.

“It’s definitely a different feeling start to start,” Harvey told the New York Daily News. “It was so easy in 2013. The first 20 starts, I would wake up the next day and feel like I could pitch another ballgame. It’s different. It’s still a work in progress, remembering I did miss a year and getting back to that.”

Harvey threw 15 pitches on Thursday after allowing seven runs for the second time in four starts Wednesday. The 15 pitches were a deviation from his normal routine, but the right-hander is feeling fine physically.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said after watching video of Harvey's last start there was an an “obvious” reason Harvey struggled, and added the former All-Star isn't happy with his performance.

“He’s pretty angry right now,” Warthen said.

Manager Terry Collins has also noticed Harvey's mood change.

“He hasn’t been in the best of moods these days. I certainly understand it, but I just want him to be the Matt Harvey he was,” Collins said. “Don’t get caught up in persona, get caught up in the individual and who you are and what made the persona what it is. Be that guy. Not everybody is perfect. You’re not going to be perfect, you’re going to make mistakes. But find that fire again that made you so successful. I think he can handle it and I think he will.”


Mets P Matt Harvey allowed 7 runs in loss to Giants


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey gave up seven earned runs in Wednesday night's 8-5 loss to the Giants. 

Harvey had a rough sixth inning, in which he gave up five of his runs. In that inning, Harvey surrendered two home runs and a double. Harvey gave up nine hits, two walks and struck out two batters. 

"It was just a terrible performance," Harvey said, via ESPN New York. "The last couple of starts have been extremely bad. Just not getting it done. Just not helping the team in any way. Something needs to change."

Harvey now has a 3.62 ERA for the season. 

His next projected start is on June 15 against the Blue Jays. 


Mets' Matt Harvey strikes out nine in win vs. Diamondbacks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey earned the win on Thursday, giving up two earned runs on six hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out nine in his team's 6-2 victory over the Diamondbacks.

Harvey (6-3) surrendered solo home runs to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the second inning and to Paul Goldschmidt in the sixth, but he otherwise kept the Diamondbacks from scoring. The win was his first since May 1.

"We still see signs of the guy who missed an entire season, one of the reasons we went to the six-man (rotation) is so he gets a day here and there and stays strong," manager Terry Collins said, per the New York Daily News. "But as I have told Matt many times, if he stays healthy and we get him where we want to get him, we are going to win a lot of baseball games."

Harvey owns a 3.05 ERA and 80:12 K:BB ratio in 73 2/3 innings. He's on track to face the Giants in San Francisco next Thursday.


Mets SP Matt Harvey throws eight innings in loss on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/29/2015) Mets starter Matt Harvey improved from his last outing, but still picked up a loss on Friday against the Marlins. After having the worst start of his career on Saturday, Harvey went eight innings Friday. He gave up four runs on six hits, walking one and striking out a season-high 11 batters. He needed 105 pitches to make through the eighth.

The big blow against Harvey came in the top of the fourth when Justin Bour hit a three-run home run. He also allowed a run in the fifth on an RBI-single.

Harvey's ERA rose to 3.11 after Friday's outing. He'll carry a 5-3 record into his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Arizona.

"He made a couple mistakes and we weren't able to give him much support," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com. "Other than that, he threw the ball fine."


Agent Scott Boras in favor of Mets going to six-man rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) 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
(5/27/2015) 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
(5/26/2015) 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
(5/25/2015) 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
(5/24/2015) 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.


Mets SP Matt Harvey endures worst start of career on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/23/2015) Mets starter Matt Harvey had his worst outing in his big-league career on Saturday against the Pirates. The young ace was touched up for seven runs on six hits in just four innings of work. He walked two and struck out four as the Mets fell 8-2.

Harvey (5-2) got into trouble early, serving up a two-run home run to Andrew McCutchen in the first inning, and a solo bomb to Pedro Alvarez in the second. The wheels fell off completely in the fourth when the Pirates put four more runs on the board.

"Everything was kind of all over the place," Harvey said, per ESPN.com. "I wasn't locating, obviously. My arm feels fine, body feels fine. It's just one of those days where if I tried to spin it, it was over the middle. And if I tried to throw a fastball in, it was away, and vice versa. It was just a pretty terrible outing."

This is the first time in his career that Harvey pitched fewer than five innings and allowed more than five earned runs. His season ERA still sits at an impressive 2.91 mark. He is scheduled to make his next start either Friday or Saturday at home against the Marlins.


Mets pitcher Matt Harvey strikes out nine in no-decision on Monday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey tossed eight scoreless innings, scattering six hits in New York's 2-1 win over the Cardinals in 14 innings on Monday, but did not factor into the decision. 

"You've got to take the win-loss thing out of the book," Harvey said, per the New York Times, "and concentrate on cheering your teammates on in the bottom half of the inning so we can score."

Harvey only allowed one baserunner to reach as far as third, coming in the first inning. After getting two outs, Harvey allowed Matt Holliday to reach safely on an error. Then, Jhonny Peralta doubled to left to put runners on second and third. He worked out of the jam though, getting Matt Adams to fly out to right.

Harvey struck out the side once and struck out multiple batters in three innings. He totaled nine strikeouts with just one walk. Harvey, who remains 5-1, lowered his ERA to 1.98 in 54 2/3 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Pirates.


Mets' Matt Harvey allows 1 run in 7 innings in no-decision


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey had a great game in what turned out to be a no-decision during Wednesday night's 2-1 loss to the Cubs. 

Harvey pitched seven innings and threw nine strikeouts. He gave up three hits, two walks and now holds a 2.31 ERA for the season. Harvey did not allow an earned run. 

Harvey has only allowed more than three earned runs once this season, when he gave up four in a win over Miami on April 19. This is the third time this year Harvey has gone through a game without allowing an earned run.

He'd only thrown a combined seven strikeouts in his past two games. His nine strikeouts on Wednesday tied his season-high. 

Harvey's next start is projected for May 18 against the Cardinals. 


Mets pitcher Matt Harvey receives first loss of season Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Mets pitcher Matt Harvey had a solid outing during Friday's game against the Phillies, but it was not enough as the Mets fell 3-1.

Harvey allowed three runs on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out four batters and walked one. His biggest mistake came in the fourth inning when Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard hit a home run.

"I needed to put up zeroes tonight, and I didn't do that," Harvey said, per MLB.com. "[I have] got to go back to square one and get back to where I was. Tomorrow I just begin to get ready for my next start."

Harvey (5-1) received his first loss of the season for his effort and his ERA rose from 2.41 to 2.72 after Friday's start. Harvey has pitched at least six innings in each of his six starts this season.

His next expected start is scheduled for Wednesday at the Chicago Cubs.
