Mets remove the struggling Matt Harvey from rotation

Matt Harvey’s latest stinker could be the last straw for Mets

Matt Harvey’s latest stinker could be the last straw for Mets

Vargas will join the rotation in San Diego next weekend, with Harvey available from the bullpen beginning Tuesday. His spot on the 25-man roster will go to right-hander Matt Wisler, who has been recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett and will start tonight's game in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez. 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.

Despite the demotion to the bullpen, Harvey would likely be the top choice the next time the Mets need another starter.

"I'm a starting pitcher", Harvey said after Thursday's game. Of course, with former starters like Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman in the bullpen, that plan could change if Harvey doesn't take to his new role.

I agree that the final three innings were a huge positive for Harvey.

"He can help us.it's inevitable that he's going to make more starts for us this year".

Counting four starts this so far this year, Harvey has just nine wins in his last 40 appearances. "I'm not sure what we're going to do". Syndergaard is 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA in four career starts against Atlanta.

It's impossible to know if that's where Harvey's problems really began. In 26 innings over four starts, he's allowed 26 hits, four home runs and four walks. He retired 11 of the last 12 batters he faced and ended a streak of 12 consecutive starts, including his last nine starts of 2017, in which he failed to last longer than five innings. Harvey is the one who suffered.

"On a scale of one-to-10, I'm at a 10 at being pissed off".

Harvey now sports a 6.00 ERA through four starts this season. The rest of the Mets' fan base has stopped making excuses for his performance but Harvey's clearly not done making them for himself, and that was the worst part of it all. I hope his next start truly is the first of many, many great moments for him as a starting pitcher.

Harvey, 29, hasn't been the same pitcher since 2016, when he had season-ending surgery to fix thoracic outlet syndrome in right shoulder.
