New York Mets Send Matt Harvey to Bullpen

New York Mets Send Matt Harvey to Bullpen

Harvey is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA after starting four games this year. NY has rotation depth at the major-league level. Harvey, right now, is not producing as a starting pitcher, so why keep him in the rotation?

"The best thing I can do is go to the bullpen, get my stuff ready and ultimately get back in the rotation and be where I know I can be", Harvey said, per SNY.

DiComo added with Jason Vargas set to come off the disabled list next Saturday in San Diego, the Mets needed to shift someone out of the rotation.

In response, first-year manager Mickey Callaway backed up his "meritocracy" mantra by threatening Harvey's spot. There's a good chance that he'll eventually get another opportunity to start, and if his results start to match his peripherals, he could have a solid season. And if Harvey has any shot at pulling off a legitimate makeover as he prepares for free agency this coming offseason, it's most likely to happen by working with Eiland and Callaway.

That's a generous way of putting it and, for Harvey, such comments could soften the blow to his ego if, indeed, the club decides to move him to the bullpen.

The right-hander went seven innings and allowed zero runs while only giving up four hits and two walks.

Harvey was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateal ligament in his right elbow, shutting him down for the season.

After attending an Indian community event here late on Tuesday night, Modi will depart for London on the second leg of his tour. Lofven, Prime Minister Modi highlighted innovation, investment, start up and manufacturing as the main areas of cooperation.

The handling of Harvey was one of Callaway's first major tests as the Mets' manager.

The Mets really had no choice but to make Saturday's decision. But the bullpen gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, and Jeurys Familia could not save a 3-2 lead in the ninth.

But while he was adamant Thursday night about wanting to remain a starter, Harvey has accepted a bullpen role.

Unfortunately, the injuries piled up as he needed surgery to fix his thoracic outlet syndrome, and he hasn't been as effective in the last three seasons. "It's inevitable that he's going to make more starts for us this year". His 6.00 ERA was by far the highest in the rotation.

However, maybe Harvey moving to the bullpen is a blessing in disguise for the former MLB All-Star.

"We admire the passion and the pride he has, and that's a big part of what's going to get him back to being a productive guy", Ricco said of Harvey.
