Matt Harvey Is Demoted to the Mets' Bullpen

Matt Harvey’s next role for Mets should be as a mop-up man

Callaway has made the right decision in moving Harvey to the bullpen.

Harvey said he was pissed at both himself and the situation.

"Get things going, then come back and dominate like I have in the past". They struggled as starters and eventually moved in to relief to try and continue their careers. New York Mets manager Mickey Calloway announced Saturday that Harvey is being moved to the bullpen. I think everyone wants to start. I wouldn't say he's discouraged.

Callaway, as seen above, thinks Harvey can help the Mets out of the bullpen due to his strike-throwing ability. "Everybody uses tons of starters; 11 was the average previous year for every team", he said.

Braves: LHP Sean Newcomb (1-1, 4.02) was 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA against the Mets as a rookie in 2017.

The fearsome fivesome of Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler took a turn together in the rotation last week for the first time and the results have given the Mets a reason to be excited. In four starts this season, he has posted a 0-2 record with a sky high 6.00 ERA. He's given up 26 hits, four of them home runs, in 21 innings. Teheran is 1-1 with a 5.02 ERA, a 1.81 WHIP, 10 walks and 18 strikeouts over 14.1 innings in his last three starts.

If you buy lettuce directly from the source, perhaps at a farmers market or in your own backyard, proceed as usual. Although infections can be intense or even life-threatening, many tend to be clear and mild up within a week.

While neither Callaway nor Eiland would tip his hand about Harvey's immediate future, Eiland, who most recently worked for the Royals, smiled when a reporter asked him if he had ever switched a starter to the bullpen under duress.

"It's the decision that they made, I have to suck it up, go out there, and do everything I can to get things back in gear".

"I don't have to agree with it, but I have to go out there and do the best I can to get things going", he said.

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.

Jason Vargas will start in San Diego next weekend. He retired 11 of the last 12 batters he faced, while also ending a streak of 12 straight starts where he had not lasted longer than five innings. He helped the Mets reach the World Series in 2015, missed half of the 2016 season following surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and he was out more than two months last season with a right shoulder injury. That transition period ultimately jumpstarted Carrasco's career, and was no doubt a significant contributing factor in his development into a pitcher who ranks seventh in Major League Baseball in fWAR since the start of the 2015 season.
