Mets placed RHP Matt Harvey on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his right shoulder.
Harvey was diagnosed with the injury Thursday after a visit with a specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. In a subsequent press release, the Mets stated that he will be out for "several weeks." Harvey, 28, has registered a disappointing 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 13 starts (70 1/3 innings) this season.

Matt Harvey will be out for "several weeks" with a right shoulder injury, per a team press release.

Harvey has a stress injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder, similar to what Michael Wacha and Brandon McCarthy have dealt with. He was given a platelet-rich plasma injection on Thursday and will be shut down for the next couple of weeks before trying to throw again. We can probably rule him out until August, at least. Harvey will officially be placed on the disabled list sometime Friday.

Matt Harvey will see a doctor for what he described as fatigue and tiredness in his arm.

"My arm was not working at all," Harvey said of his start against the Cubs on Wednesday. He surrendered three home runs over four innings in that one before exiting having thrown just 58 pitches. Given the right-hander's injury history -- a Tommy John surgery and surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome -- these dead-arm complaints raise their share of red flags. Harvey has struggled to a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 13 starts this season.

Matt Harvey gave up four runs in four innings while allowing a trio of dingers but escaped with a no-decision as his club beat the Cubs on Wednesday.

He surrendered only four base hits but was taken deep by Anthony Rizzo and Ian Happ in the first inning, and Kyle Schwarber in the fourth. Harvey fanned five batters and issued one free pass and lasted for only 58 pitches before being relieved. He has a 4-3 record with a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 13 starts.
Jun 14 - 10:50 PM

Matt Harvey pitched five scoreless innings Friday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Harvey needed 104 pitches to get his 15 outs, so it wasn't a quick hook to boost his confidence; he went as far as anyone would have expected him to. It doesn't look like classic Harvey is coming back, but he's been effective in three of his last four starts. He's still not going to be a good play in mixed leagues against the Cubs and Dodgers his next two times out.
Jun 10 - 1:20 AM

Matt Harvey struggled again Friday against the Pirates, giving up six runs in five-plus innings of work.

It looked like perhaps Harvey had turned a corner in his last outing, but he was in trouble from the start in this one. After loading the bases in the first inning, he was fortunate to escape with only one run scoring. He wasn’t so fortunate in the fourth inning, as Elias Diaz delivered a bases-clearing double. Harvey ended up giving up five hits (including a solo homer to Josh Bell) and four walks while striking out five. He’s sitting on a 5.43 ERA through 11 starts and is simply tough to trust in fantasy leagues at this stage.
Jun 2 - 11:25 PM

Matt Harvey delivered one of his finest starts of the 2017 season on Sunday, allowing just one run on six hits over six innings in a victory over the Pirates.

The right-hander walked two and struck out four on the evening. The only damage he allowed was a solo homer off the bat of Gregory Polanco in the second inning. In what has been an inconsistent and drama-filled season to date, perhaps this is the type of start Harvey needed to get back on track. He'll bring a 4.95 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into a rematch against these same Pirates at home on Friday.
May 28 - 11:27 PM

Matt Harvey won for the first time since April 11 after allowing two runs over five innings Tuesday against the Padres.

Harvey was given the wide-open layup in this one, as the Mets got him seven runs in the bottom of the first. It still wasn't easy for Harvey; he ended up walking four and throwing 103 pitches in five innings. His old form isn't coming back that quickly.
May 23 - 10:45 PM

Matt Harvey yielded three runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's 11-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.

Harvey's control was all over the place in this one, as he walked four and threw just 61 of 95 pitches for strikes. Two of the three runs on his line scored when Jake Lamb socked a two-run home run off him in the third inning. It has been a trying season for the Dark Knight, who was suspended for three games by the team after failing to show at the ballpark earlier this month and now holds a rough 5.56 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through his first eight starts. Harvey will try for better results in a home outing against the Padres next time he takes to the mound.
May 17 - 7:14 PM

In his first start since his team-imposed suspension, Matt Harvey allowed five runs — including three home runs — over five-plus innings in a loss to the Brewers on Friday.

Harvey labored through his first five innings of work while giving up two runs, but Mets manager Terry Collins sent him back out there for the sixth. The decision backfired in a big way, as Harvey allowed a leadoff infield single to Keon Broxton before giving up back-to-back homers to Eric Sogard and Orlando Arcia. Harvey struck out five and walked five in the loss and has now allowed 10 home runs in just 40 innings of work this season. He remains a work in progress coming back from surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.
May 13 - 12:23 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Monday that Matt Harvey will rejoin the rotation on Friday in Milwaukee.

It confirms a previous report from Mike Puma of the New York Post. Harvey is eligible to return from his team-imposed three-game suspension on Wednesday, but the Mets apparently have decided to push him back a couple more days. For what it's worth, Collins said a likely hostile reception for Harvey at Citi Field had he started Wednesday wasn't a factor in the team's decision. Tommy Milone or Rafael Montero will start Wednesday.
May 8 - 4:27 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that the Mets "are leaning toward" Matt Harvey making his return Friday against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Harvey is currently finishing out his three-game suspension after violating team rules. He reportedly failed to show up for Saturday's game after claiming to have a migraine and cited a communication issue with the team. He's said to be mulling over filing a grievance against the team, so it's a highly awkward situation. Harvey, who last pitched on May 2, owns a 5.14 ERA through his first six starts this season.
May 8 - 3:50 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Matt Harvey did not show up at Citi Field for Saturday's game against the Marlins.

Rosenthal adds that Harvey had a migraine and cited a possible communication issue with the Mets, but the team apparently wasn't buying it. Peter Botte of the New York Daily News has reported that it was "a compilation of issues" that "dates back to last year" which led to Harvey's three-game suspension for violating team rules. However, it appears his no-show on Saturday was the straw that broke the camel's back. Harvey will rejoin the Mets' rotation later this week, but he has some work to do to get back in the team's good graces.
May 7 - 2:21 PM

Mets suspended RHP Matt Harvey for three days without pay for violating team rules.

General manager Sandy Alderson didn't reveal whether it was one incident or a buildup of incidences, saying that it's a matter that will be kept in house. News of what exactly happened with the righty should leak out eventually. Harvey had been scheduled to start Sunday against the Marlins, but Adam Wilk will now take the ball. The right-hander will rejoin the Mets' rotation later this week.
May 7 - 10:45 AM

Matt Harvey surrendered six runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Braves.

Harvey's stuff went downhill quickly when the Mets moved him up in the rotation for a surprise start after Noah Syndergaard was pushed back last week. Tonight, his stuff held up the entire way, but the outs didn't come. He allowed eight hits, walked three and hit a batter, all while striking out just two. While Harvey's velocity isn't what it was two years ago, what's left should be plenty good enough to make him a fine big-league starter. He just needs to figure out how to work with it.
