New York Mets Move Matt Harvey To The 'Pen

  • It’s the beginning of an ugly end for Matt Harvey and the Mets

So far this year, Syndergaard has been good after a relatively shaky start (four runs in 6.0 innings), and gave up just two hits and no earned in his last appearance.

Kurt Suzuki had three hits and drove in three runs, including a two-run homer off Harvey in the first inning.

The Mets, however, did not have room for him in the rotation.

Some of that is because veteran southpaw Jason Vargas, who was signed during the winter provide some much-needed rotational depth, will be returning from an injury to his non-pitching hand in the coming days.

"The best thing I can do is go to the bullpen, get my stuff ready and ultimately get back in the rotation and be where I know I can be", Harvey said, per SNY.

The next time Matt Harvey takes the mound, he'll do so as a reliever. Of course, with former starters like Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman in the bullpen, that plan could change if Harvey doesn't take to his new role.

While Kerr has relied on David West and Kevon Looney, veteran Zaza Pachulia has received a healthy scratch for the past two games. Game 3 should be the most highly contested game in this series so far, and will come down to a play or two late.

At the end of the clip, Callaway acknowledged that Harvey will probably make more starts for the Mets this season, citing how nearly every team uses a ton of starting pitchers.

In the first three innings of his start in Atlanta, Harvey was hammered for six runs on seven hits, putting NY in a 6-0 hole they were not able to climb out of in what became a 12-4 loss. "It's inevitable that he's going to make more starts for us this year". "That's how baseball goes".

So while it's nice to see this group pitch together, don't be surprised if the rotation looks a little different later in the season.

Callaway was also present for fellow Cleveland hurler Mike Clevinger's transition to the bullpen and back, so it's perfectly fair to think this may just be a temporary measure to help Harvey work on things with the ultimate plan of converting him back to a hopefully improved starting pitcher.

"We haven't made that determination yet", Callaway said.

"They make the calls and whatever is best for everybody is what I need to do", he said. Ricco stated the team would narrow on the two to help Harvey reconstruct his nurturing and optimism. But he lost the entire 2014 season to Tommy John surgery, and his 2016 and 2017 seasons were limited by a right shoulder problem and surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. "He's not supposed to be happy about it". Harvey surrendered four runs in five innings the following day against Washington. Even if he can not return to the level he was at in 2013, him proving himself in the bullpen, working his way back into a starting role, and producing quality outings will give the Mets a huge boost to their pitching staff.
