Because today’s game between the Mets and Braves was postponed due to rain, and the decision was made not to have a doubleheader on Sunday, right-hander Matt Harvey will now have seven full days of rest in between starts. Harvey was originally scheduled to pitch tomorrow’s game on Sunday, but Jon Niese who was today’s scheduled starter, will pitch tomorrow’s contest instead. With the Mets off on Monday, Harvey will get the nod on Tuesday when the Mets begin their homestand with a three game series against the Chicago White Sox. This may not be a bad thing as Harvey is coming off a career-high 121-pitch effort in his last start on Monday. The bullpen could also use the rest after what has been a taxing week for them. Today’s postponement was announced early this afternoon due to torrential rainfall and flood warnings in the Atlanta metropolitan area. No makeup date has been announced.
