Matt Harvey (arm) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.
And the reports were good. Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday that the ace right-hander is going through a period of "dead arm," but that's a pretty common thing for pitchers. Harvey, who allowed seven runs in four innings Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates, is a pretty good bet to bounce back Friday versus the Marlins. May 26 - 4:28 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday that Matt Harvey may be going through a period of "dead arm."

Harvey had the worst outing of his career Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates, yielding seven earned runs in four innings. But he was dominant against the Cardinals in his start before and the "dead arm" thing is really just speculation from Collins anyway. "I have not talked to Matt yet, but it looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens," said the Mets' skipper. "He’s going to pitch Friday with five days rest, be ready to go."

Matt Harvey surrendered seven earned runs in four innings Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Pirates.

It was the worst outing of his young career. Pittsburgh got the scoring started in the bottom of the first inning, with Andrew McCutchen slugging a two-run bomb to center field. Pedro Alvarez then cranked a solo homer in the second, and the Bucs tacked on four more runs in the fourth. Harvey should bounce back next week in a start at home against the Marlins.
May 23 - 7:01 PM

Matt Harvey shut out the Cardinals over eight innings in a no-decision on Monday as the Mets eventually walked off winners in the 14th inning.

Harvey was in line for the win, but Jeurys Familia blew the save in the ninth. The right-hander gave up only six hits and a walk while striking out nine. With the outing, Harvey got his ERA below 2.00 at 1.98 along with a 0.91 WHIP and a 56/8 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings. Harvey will make his third attempt at his sixth win over the weekend in Pittsburgh against the Pirates.
May 18 - 11:29 PM

Matt Harvey shut out the Cubs over seven innings but got a no-decision as the Mets lost late on Wednesday.

Harvey scattered three hits and a pair of walks while striking out nine. The Cubs brought a runner into scoring position only twice and failed in both situations. Harvey continues to pitch outstanding baseball after missing the entire 2014 season. He's 5-1 with a 2.31 ERA, a 0.92 WHIP, and a 47/7 K/BB ratio in 46 2/3 innings. He will take on the Cardinals at home in his next outing.
May 13 - 10:51 PM

Matt Harvey suffered his first defeat of the 2015 season, surrendering three runs on six hits over six frames against the Phillies on Friday.

Harvey punched out four and walked one on the night. Ryan Howard was responsible for the bulk of the damage against him, lining a two-out RBI single in the first inning and blasting a solo homer in the fourth. Even with the off-night, Harvey will still bring an outstanding 5-1 record, 2.72 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 38/5 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Cubs in Chicago.
May 8 - 9:36 PM

Matt Harvey spun seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 win over the Nationals on Friday.

Harvey didn't dominate, but he was very efficient, allowing just five hits and one walk while striking out three. He threw 61 out of 93 pitches for strikes before leaving for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the seventh. The Mets' ace is now 5-0 with a 2.41 ERA and 34/4 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings across five starts. His workload is going to be managed, but fantasy owners have to be thrilled with what they've seen so far.
May 1 - 9:55 PM

Matt Harvey held the Yankees to two runs over 8 2/3 innings Saturday in the Mets' 8-2 victory.

Harvey nearly notched his second career complete game, but Mets manager Terry Collins gave him the hook after he walked Brian McCann with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Probably the right move. Harvey struck out seven and yielded just five hits, moving to 4-0 with a 3.04 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and 31/3 K/BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. He gets the Nationals at home next.
Apr 25 - 7:11 PM

Matt Harvey is dealing with a mild left ankle sprain.

He's still expected to make his scheduled start Saturday against the Yankees. It seems to be a minor affliction but is worth keeping an eye on during Saturday's game.
Apr 22 - 9:00 PM

Matt Harvey is having his foot examined by doctors.

It's being called a minor issue, but Harvey acknowledged Wednesday that he's been bothered by it for months. The ace right-hander is still penciled in for his Saturday start at Yankee Stadium, but this situation obviously warrants monitoring. He pitched through an unrelated illness on Sunday against the Marlins and allowed four runs over six-plus innings.
Apr 22 - 4:19 PM

Matt Harvey pitched through an illness in Sunday's start against the Marlins and claimed that he felt weak and had been unable to swallow prior to the game.

That could partially explain why he seemed to wear down in the seventh inning, but was still dominant enough to pick up his third victory of the season. He has been extremely impressive through his first three starts and looks as though he'll be stronger than he was before undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Apr 19 - 4:37 PM

Matt Harvey earned this third win of the season, allowing four runs in six-plus innings as the Mets held on to a 7-6 win versus the Marlins on Sunday.

Harvey had limited the Marlins to two runs over the first six innings, but started the seventh inning and allowed a run on three consecutive singles before departing. Reliever Alex Torres later allowed Harvey's runner to score on a wild pitch. On the afternoon, Harvey gave up eight hits, walked none, and struck out seven. He owns a 3.50 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 24/1 K/BB ratio in 18 innings. Harvey will face the Yankees in the Bronx next weekend.
Apr 19 - 4:18 PM

Matt Harvey improved to 2-0, allowing three runs over six innings as the Mets eked out a 6-5 win against the Phillies on Tuesday.

Some of the Phillies seemed to have Harvey figured out, as Chase Utley and Cody Asche both hit solo homers off of the right-hander. Others didn't, as Harvey struck out eight and walked none while allowing only five hits in total. Harvey will take on the currently 2-6 Marlins at home in his next start.
Apr 14 - 10:49 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Tuesday that Matt Harvey won't be on such a restrictive pitch count in his second start Tuesday night against the Phillies.

Harvey was lifted at 92 pitches in his debut last Thursday versus the Nationals yet still managed to rack up nine strikeouts over six scoreless innings. He should be allowed to top 100 pitches on Tuesday at Citi Field and he has a very advantageous matchup against a weak Phillies lineup.
Apr 14 - 4:06 PM

Matt Harvey delivered six scoreless innings Thursday in the Mets' 6-3 defeat of the Nationals.

It was Harvey's first major league start since August 2013 and he was absolutely brilliant, scattering three singles and a double over six shutout frames while striking out nine. He issued just one walk. Harvey went 91 pitches in this one, and he should be able to climb near 100 next week in a home start against the Phillies. "The Dark Knight" is back.
