Mets' Matt Harvey admits post-surgery phase has been harder than he expected

New York Mets ace Matt Harvey has hit some rough patches this season as he returns from Tommy John surgery, and while he didn't expect his recovery to be without a hitch, he didn't quite expect it to be this difficult, either. "I'm finding that it's a lot [tougher] than I anticipated, and it was earlier in the season," Harvey said, per the New York Post. "Just the feel, going through...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, Jun 26-29

This weekend’s edition of the Daily SP Rankings also includes Friday’s rankings. I was surprised to see Matt Harvey against the Reds edge out Clayton Kershaw against the Marlins for Saturday’s top spot, but then I saw the Marlins have an OPS about 100 points higher against LHP. Obviously still start with confidence, but I found that interesting. On Sunday we have ace after...

A First Look at Steven Matz

The Mets have an embarrassment of riches in their starting rotation. Jacob deGrom has seemingly become one of the best pitchers in baseball, and Matt Harvey has pitched very well in his first half-season since returning from injury. Behind them, Noah Syndergaard has shown flashes of dominance over his first eight starts in the majors, […]

Can Matt Harvey be a stopper for the slumping Mets?

It used to be a common baseball term to refer to a team’s ace as a stopper. As in, the guy on the mound who ends long losing streaks. Now, it’s just as likely to refer to a team’s main bullpen guy. Or, even worse, as a team logo wine cork. But today, let’s go back to the original meaning. The Mets, losers of four straight, need Matt Harvey to be their stopper. Last...

New York Mets: Matt Harvey bounces back

New York Mets fans had been in a Gotham-like unrest for weeks, waiting for the city’s hero to return and take down their enemies. Though Matt Harvey had several times showed up to combat opposing forces, on Tuesday night he returned to form as the Dark Knight and carried the New York Mets to victory against the surging Toronto Blue Jays. Following a four-start rough patch during...

Breaking Down Matt Harvey vs Toronto Blue Jays

“F–k Yeah, Let’s Go!” Stat Line:  7 IP, 0 R, 4 H, 6 K, 0 BB After giving up eight homeruns in his last four outings, Matt Harvey got back on track against the hot hitting Blue Jays lineup.  Harvey’s displayed good command in his four pitch repertoire and nice two-seam movement on his fastball as the game progressed but much of his success can be attributed to his game...

MMO Morning Grind: Finally, A Happy Harvey Day

Matt Harvey pitched last night, and the Mets won. Don’t take it for granted. After winning their ace’s first five starts, the Mets had lost five of the last seven games in which Harvey took the mound, going into last night’s game. Of course, that’s not all Harvey’s fault— on May 18th, his season ERA stood at 1.98 despite the team having dropped two of his last three...

Harvey Tagged For Seven Runs Again, Says He’s Not Getting It Done

Matt Harvey had one of the worst games of his career during last night’s loss to the Giants at Citi Field. He allowed a career high tying seven runs and nine hits – including three home runs – while striking out only two in six innings pitched. The only other time Harvey gave up seven or more runs was just last month against Pittsburgh on May 23rd, just three starts ago. Despite...

What in the world is wrong with New York Mets ace Matt Harvey?

Okay, athletes are human too. No pitcher is going to have a perfect season, and even the best are going to get nicked up every once in a while. However, the New York Mets and their fans have to be getting worried about ace Matt Harvey’s recent streak of poor outings, especially considering the Dark Knight, as he is affectionally called, is coming off missing all of 2014 due to...
