Harvey likely to be shut down after 200 innings

At the start of the year many players avoid making hard statistical goals for the season. Matt Harvey does not. One of Harvey's aims heading into his first full big league season was to pitch 200 innings which he might have done over two levels last year had the Mets not shut him down in mid-September. This year 200 innings sits near the upper limit of what the Mets will allow...

Mets likely to shut Matt Harvey down after 200 innings

The end seems to be approaching for New York Mets ace Matt Harvey. Although the team still has not put an exact figure on how many innings they'll let their young starter throw, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com suggests that the organisation is unlikely to let him go far past 200 innings, just over 30 more than last season's 169 1/3. Harvey is naturally keen to keep pitching but...

Harvey vs Wheeler After Ten Starts

As Zack Wheeler wrapped up the 10th start of his young and promising career on Saturday night, I was all set to compare his first ten against Matt Harvey‘s until I saw the incredible job that Brian Joura did over at Mets 360. Rather than churn out 500 words to basically say the same thing, I figure you would all be better served by reading what Brian had to say and let him do all...

Flanagan: Chen's magnificence wasted in loss

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There's almost no explaining the incredible run Royals left-hander Bruce Chen is on. Chen was brilliant again Tuesday night, throwing seven shutout innings. And now his ERA is 0.93 through six starts since returning to the rotation. Unfortunately, the Royals offense again let him down, coming up with zilch in a rather discouraging 1-0 loss in 10 innings to...

Ryu outduels Harvey, Mets to keep Dodgers' streak intact

LOS ANGELES The importance of the moment wasn't lost on Hyun-Jin Ryu. He knew exactly whom he was facing Tuesday night. He knew the kind of pitching performance he needed to keep the Dodgers moving forward at their electric pace. Like everything else that has been going so well these days, Ryu gave them just what they were expecting. Facing New York Mets right-hander Matt...

Mets vs Dodgers: Flores Rests His Ankle, Turner At 3B, Satin At 1B, Oh Yeah And It’s Harvey Day!

No More Six-Man Rotation; Mets’ Pitching In State Of Flux

That six-man rotation the New York Mets wanted to establish will not happen. With the need to protect Jon Niese, who came off the disabled list Sunday, and wanting to limit the innings of Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, the six-man rotation seemed an appropriate way to go. HEFNER: DL bound? Of course, six won’t work when there are only five pitchers. That’s because struggling Jeremy...

Preview: Hot-hitting Butler leads Royals against Marlins

Billy Butler is one of the main reasons behind the Kansas City Royals' impressive turnaround. Bruce Chen is making his own contributions on the mound. Butler looks to continue his tear at the plate and Chen goes for another strong start as the Royals again attempt to capitalize on the struggling Miami Marlins on Tuesday night. Winning 17 of 20 has made Kansas City (62-54)...
