What new Mets regime sees in Matt Harvey for last ride | New York Post

Who doesn’t look good throwing in a gym during the off-season?

“We are really encouraged,” his agent, Scott Boras, said. “Matt was out at our sports fitness institute this past two weeks and the ball was really coming out of his hand at Matt Harvey levels of the past, so we’re really excited about what 2018 holds for him.”

Mets have talked to teams about trading Matt Harvey: sources - NY Daily News

Flip him for a reliever. His stock can’t get much lower.

“They are willing to move him,” one source said, “and they said they wanted to try and flip him for a reliever. They seemed more willing to move him then (Robert) Gsellman or (Seth) Lugo.”

‘Highly unlikely’ Mets risk Harvey burning them — with another team | New York Post

The Mets appear willing to gamble on the disappointing right-hander, even at the risk of potentially wasting $6 million in 2018 should the struggles that have defined Harvey’s last two seasons persist.

And that means tendering a contract to the arbitration-eligible pitcher.

“It’s highly unlikely that we’re not going to bring him back next year,” general manager Sandy Alderson told The Post on Wednesday after the Mets’ 9-2 loss to the Marlins.

Matt Harvey’s dubious future comes down to these five starts | New York Post

Three days rest?

If you blinked Saturday, you might have missed Matt Harvey’s ignominious return to the mound in Houston in which his ravaged right arm was torched for seven runs on eight hits in two innings by the Astros.

But apparently Harvey was enthused enough about his performance that he’s rushing back out there, moved up a day in the rotation to pitch Wednesday against the Phillies on three days of rest after having thrown 70 pitches in his first big league start since June 14.

Mets’ Matt Harvey still predicting success

Matt Harvey stood on the mound on Saturday afternoon, supposedly a changed man. It was a newer, trimmer, healthier Harvey ready to show that the first part of his dismal 2017 season was behind him, and he can get outs and put up zeros.

It didn’t happen.

Harvey was shelled right from the start. The Houston Astros hit him for four runs in the first inning and three more in the second. It was hard to watch. Harvey didn’t even get a swing-and-miss until his 25th pitch. The velocity wasn’t there and neither was the stuff. It was as though everything that had made him successful in the past was stripped away. All he was left with was a flat, low-90s fastball.

The Mets have to consider non-tending him, right?

Matt Harvey says he’s ready to return to Mets after latest rehab start | Newsday

Magical thinking.

Harvey has been on the Mets’ disabled list since June 16 with a stress injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder that had sapped the 28-year-old’s velocity. Harvey’s fastball typically sat in the 90-to-92 miles-per-hour range throughout Saturday’s start and his velocity reached 93 on the stadium radar gun on a few occasions.

“It’s going to come and go,” Harvey said of the velocity. “Once you get the adrenaline going in a big-league game . . . then the velocity will come.”
