PLAYERS: Matt Harvey
BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Bisons right-hander Matt Harvey may be new to Twitter, but the speculation that he could be the next Mets pitching call-up from Buffalo has led to an overwhelming flood of messages. So much so that Harvey has had to take a twitter break.

Ricciardi Non-Committal On Harvey Promotion

Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi was one of the Mets entourage on hand as prospect Matt Harvey pitched 6.2 innings and allowed two runs in what was tabbed as his audition for a possible major league debut this Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. “He’s a good one,” said Ricciardi, who sat behind home plate. “But he didn’t have his best stuff tonight. He showed...

Harvey in the bullpen could be Mets best bet in 2012

Despite management’s decision to have Miguel Batista start on Saturday, there is a great outcry to have 2010 first round pick Matt Harvey called up and fill the void in the rotation left by Dillon Gee’s blood clot injury. The logic makes sense. Harvey has handled triple-A pretty well and the Mets seem to lack the depth necessary to effectively fill in for Gee. Even if Gee was...

Did Matt Harvey toss his last Minor League gem?

A Bookend For My Friend Harvey

If giving up two runs in six and 2/3's innings is what Matt Harvey does when he's rusty, I can't wait to see what this kid can do on normal rest. And normal rest would have him pitching on Saturday.Perhaps Saturday will find him pitching against the Dodgers at Citi Field?Yeah, not exactly the Toledo Mud Hens. But then again, and he's the most important point I can...

Harvey Could Still Get Call If Batista Fails To Impress On Saturday

It looks like this is the story that won’t go away this season. It feels like every week going back to Spring Training we’ve been reading or hearing about Matt Harvey after every mound appearance and then some. I often wonder if it’s like this with all teams regarding their top prospects or if this is something that is exclusive to Mets fans? We like to hold all our prospects...

Matt Harvey Solid In His Audition For Mets Execs

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 in the sixth...

Harvey Won’t Debut On Saturday, No Chance Wheeler Is A Met In 2012

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...

Mets Farm Report: Savannah Wins Thriller, Brooklyn Pounds Spikes, Harvey Homeward Bound

Nothing A Little Winning Streak Won’t Cure Toledo 4, Buffalo 2 By Sean Kenny In what may amount to the last Triple-A start for Matt Harvey, he had a strong outing but Jenrry Mejia continued to struggle and the Bisons lost the first game against the Toledo Mudhens, 4-2. Matt Harvey went out today and from the start of the game did not have his best control. Harvey’s final line...

Toledo Rallies Late To Defeat Bisons

In what might be his final start for the Buffalo Bisons, starter Matt Harvey threw five innings of hit-less ball, earning a no-decision on Monday night as Toledo rallied late to defeat Buffalo 4-2. After going into the 6th inning with a no-hitter, Harvey struggled in the 6th and 7th innings, allowing two runs and three hits before being pulled with 2-outs in the 7th. Despite throwing...

You have to watch tonight’s Bisons game NOW

It’s funny how this stuff works out. Before each season, SNY and the Mets decide which Buffalo Bisons game to air on SNY. If you didn’t know, the Bisons are the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate. So the Bisons play Toledo at home right now. Jason Bay is starting in left field and batting second. But that’s not the big news of the game. I’m sure that most of you have heard of Matt...

In Last Night’s Tuneup, Bay Gave No Reason To Think Things Have Changed

Strike Three, Yer Out… Matt Harvey may have been the big story in last night’s contest between the Buffalo Bisons and the Toledo Mudhens, but there was another storyline – Mets rehabbing left fielder Jason Bay. Bay played in what could be his final rehab game and went 0-for-2 with two walks. He also muffed a flyball to left field that he lost in the lights and fell in for a...
