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.
Apr 9 - 4:20 PM

Matt Harvey finished his spring with four scoreless innings Thursday against the Cardinals.

He allowed three hits, walked none and struck out four. Harvey, who will face off against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals next Thursday, is expected to throw about 90 pitches in his first regular-season start, with a maximum of 100. The 26-year-old right-hander registered a 1.19 ERA and 21/1 K/BB in 22 2/3 total Grapefruit League innings.
Apr 2 - 3:59 PM

Matt Harvey surrendered one run over 4 1/3 innings and struck out five Friday versus the Cardinals.

Harvey's velocity was better today after being down a bit last time out, and he had it pretty easy against the Cardinals. He's sporting a 1.45 ERA and a 17/1 K/BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings for the spring.
Mar 27 - 4:47 PM

Matt Harvey pitched 5 2/3 innings of two-hit ball as the Mets shut out the Yankees 6-0 on Sunday.

Harvey didn't have his best velocity of the spring, saying after the game that he consciously dialed it back a bit. He was very efficient in striking out four and walking none. It'll only help him to know that he can go out there and retire major league hitters without having to overpower them.
Mar 22 - 5:19 PM

Matt Harvey shut out the Red Sox for four innings in his start Monday.

Harvey, who said he was a bit sluggish while giving up six hits and a couple of runs last time out, had better stuff today and made relatively quick work of the Red Sox hitters. He allowed three hits, walked none and struck out three.
Mar 16 - 4:37 PM

Matt Harvey yielded two runs and six hits in 2 2/3 innings Wednesday in his start against the Marlins.

Harvey wasn't as strong this time out as his first start last week, and he said afterwards that his body felt "sluggish," adding that it was a typical thing for him during the spring. It certainly wasn't a setback or anything, and, according to ESPNNewYork's Adam Rubin, he's expected to throw 60 pitches or so next time out Monday against the Red Sox.
Mar 11 - 4:53 PM

Matt Harvey is slated to throw about 50 pitches on Wednesday.

Harvey threw 25 pitches in two perfect innings in his return from Tommy John surgery last Friday and he's ready to build on that this week. As of now, he's lined up to start in the first series of the season against the Nationals.
Mar 10 - 8:38 AM

Matt Harvey touched 99 mph while throwing two perfect innings Friday against the Nationals.

Harvey struck out three, and he showed good break on his curveball to go along with the blazing heater. It was a terrific sight. The plan is for Harvey to start the Mets' third game of the season on April 9.
Mar 6 - 2:01 PM

Matt Harvey (elbow) is likely to make his regular season debut on April 9 in Washington against the Nationals, the third game of the regular season, according to Kevin Kernan of the New York Daily News.

Harvey should also be good to go for his next turn on April 14 at home against the Phillies, Kernan added. The right-hander is nearly fully recovered from his October 2013 Tommy John surgery. Expect the Mets to take their foot off the gas with Harvey often throughout the season. Innings aside, though, the sky remains the limit for the talented youngster, who finished the 2013 season with a 2.27 ERA and 191/31 K/BB ratio in 178 1/3 innings, good enough for fourth in NL Cy Young Award balloting.
