Mets’ Matt Harvey on start vs. Braves: ‘It’s still a work in progress’ - Mets Blog- ESPN

“Obviously throwing that many pitches in five innings is not ideal,” Harvey said. “My goal today was going out there and really trying to work on what we had worked on this past week. At times I was able to do that, and at times I fell out of that. I have to re-find that.

“When you get into a bad habit, it’s not going to be an immediate fix,” the 27-year-old continued. “The majority of the time out of the stretch I did feel better. Like I said, there’s still work to be done.”

Matt Harvey Throws Hard Heat at the New York Press Corps

The Dark Whiner.

Case in point: Harvey’s recent health scare over a painful clot in his bladder. The subsequent media razzing riled Harvey. The New York Post went to town, with cheeky mock-ups of potential back page headlines like “Whiz Kid” and “Field of Streams.” The paper settled on “Urine Luck.” The cumulative ridicule prompted Harvey to boycott beat reporters for a few days, and touched off a renewed debate over whether Harvey is a crybaby.

Harvey had blood clot in bladder, will start Opening Day - NY Daily News

Let it flow, Matt!

After hours of speculation about his “mysterious” medical condition, Matt Harvey was cleared to pitch Opening Day after passing a “big” blood clot. The Mets ace said that the blood clot developed after a bladder infection, likely because he does not use the restroom often enough.

“I guess the main issue is I hold my urine in for too long instead of peeing regularly, so I guess I have to retrain my bladder to use the restroom a little bit more instead of holding it in,” a tired and pale Harvey said Tuesday morning. “I guess that’s what caused the bladder infection.

Mets Matt Harvey added spin to slider in 2015 | mets.com

When data matches perception.

Harvey noted to DiComo that he wasn’t sure if it was a “a forearm-strength thing or a feel thing,” and in late July, it was reported that he’d made adjustments to the slider with pitching coach Dan Warthen. But the trend was unmistakable. Just look at what happens when you compare spin rate (in blue) to the vertical movement he gained (orange line):

Scott Boras says Harvey’s innings limit was misunderstanding - NY Daily News

Misstep, misunderstanding. Tomato,  tomahto.

It was all a big “misunderstanding.”

Uber agent Scott Boras, who started a firestorm in September over Matt Harvey’s innings limit, threatening that the Mets would be putting the right-hander in peril if he was used too much down the stretch, is now happy with the way things worked out.

“I think there was a misunderstanding,” said Boras, who made his annual appearance at the GM Meetings on Wednesday. “Matt never, ever said anything about not throwing in the playoffs. He was always going to throw in the playoffs and our plan included him throwing in the playoffs.

“We were all baseball players, we know you pitch in the playoffs,” Boras continued. “The Mets came to us and Dr. (James) Andrews with a plan to pitch in the playoffs, it was executed and turned out well. “
