The verdict is in on Harvey…
Today in Washington, Sandy Alderson announced that Miguel Batista will start Saturday’s game against the Dodgers and NOT Matt Harvey..
Last night for the Bisons, Harvey allowed two runs and three hits with four walks and four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings against Triple-A Toledo in front of a group of Mets scouts and executives that included J.P. Ricciardi.
Also, disputing earlier comments by Terry Collins, Alderson said that there is “no scenario” in which Zack Wheeler will pitch in the Major Leagues this season, but that “Wheeler should be promoted to Triple-A Buffalo soon.”

If Matt Harvey was nervous when he took the mound tonight against the Toledo Mudhens at Coca Cola Field in Buffalo, you sure couldn’t tell by his pitching performance.
In front of a sparse crowd that included a large contingent of Mets executives, Harvey was dazzling through the first five innings of his audition and allowed no-hits.
Toledo finally got to Harvey ...
