Mets remove the struggling Matt Harvey from rotation

May JohnsonApr 24, 2018

Syndergaard is 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA in four career games against the Braves, but pitched six scoreless innings in a no-decision at NY last April. Harvey, right now, is not producing as a starting pitcher, so why keep him in the rotation?

"I think there's a lot to still prove, but I believe that I took a step in the right direction", Harvey said, per MLB.com. The team chose the latter, hoping Matt Harvey can regain his form. NY would advance and Harvey would start Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the up and coming Chicago Cubs team and would not disappoint. With Jason Vargas returning to the rotation, the Mets had to move somebody out, and Harvey and his 6.00 ERA are the choice. 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.

"Get things going, then come back and dominate like I have in the past". In seven of the starts in which he allowed one run or less, the Mets failed to give him run support and despite Harvey giving seven plus innings of quality pitching in a majority of them, he would recieve a no decision. In fact, he recognizes why the Mets have made this decision. Given contract guidelines, mainly because he's got more than five decades at the major leagues, Harvey would have needed to approve a demotion, anyway.

A stint in the bullpen could be good for Harvey in that it can help him get his stuff back so he has a chance to regain his 2013 All-Star form for the Mets.

Later on Saturday, the Mets lost, 4-3, to the Braves on a walk-off ninth-inning bunt single by Ender Inciarte that allowed Johan Camargo to score just ahead of a throw home by first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. "I couldn't feel the ball.'" Four days later, he opted to undergo season-ending surgery after tests showed that he had symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.

Harvey lobbied to remain in the rotation after the last of his three innings were scoreless. "Everybody uses tons of starters; 11 was the average a year ago for every team", he said. He just needs to get back to where he knows he can be. He finished 2017 with a career-worst 6.70 ERA.
