Matt Harvey struggles with control again in no-decision on Wednesday

Matt Harvey allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday, giving up six hits and four walks while striking out five. He did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Well, this was an improvement for Harvey over his last three starts, but he's now walked 17 batters over his last four outings. If you want to be positive, pitching against the Diamondbacks in Arizona is a tough matchup for any pitcher, and Harvey didn't get lit up. But still, it's nearly impossible to start him in a fantasy league at this point. He does have a fantastic matchup against the Padres at home next week, but tread lightly.

Matt Harvey takes loss against Brewers on Friday night

Matt Harvey, pitching for the first time since coming back from a suspension, looked rusty and labored through five innings against the Brewers in the Mets' 7-4 loss on Friday. After five innings, Harvey had allowed only two earned runs despite walking five and dodging trouble. Despite throwing 97 pitches and having nothing left, Terry Collins sent Harvey back out to pitch the bottom of the sixth inning. Predictably, Harvey gave up a hit and back-to-back homers without recording an out in the sixth. In his five plus innings of work, Harvey allowed five earned runs, seven hits and five walks. He did manage to strike out six and showed good velocity despite the labored outing.

Fantasy Impact

Harvey owners were victimized by rust and a very poor managerial decision to send out Harvey for an additional inning. Harvey now has an unsightly 5.63 ERA on the season after 40 IP. He will next face the Diamondbacks in Arizona next week. Owners in more shallow leagues may be best served keeping Harvey on the bench until such time he starts to get himself back on track.

Matt Harvey likely to file a grievance against Mets over suspension

Matt Harvey is reportedly planning to file a grievance against the Mets. Harvey was suspended by his team on Sunday for three games without pay. One source said “this will end up in a grievance” other sources suggest Harvey isn’t yet set on that, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Fantasy Impact

Sunday's suspension of Harvey was sudden and surprising, and a grievance would add yet another wrinkle to an already strange story. The Mets are still not saying exactly what the suspension is for, but rumors have circled that it centers around Harvey not showing up to Saturday's game, when the pitcher may have had a migraine. This situation might get uglier before it gets better, but as of now, it looks like Harvey should make his next scheduled start. Keep an eye on this developing situation going forward.

Matt Harvey suspended by Mets, won't start Sunday

Matt Harvey has been suspended for three days without pay by the New York Mets for violation of club rules. He has been sent home and will not start on Sunday. Left-hander Adam Wilk will take the mound in his place.

Fantasy Impact

This is stunning news, but the team is apparently keeping things close to the vest for now. The Mets are unwilling to reveal the reason for Harvey’s brief and sudden suspension. Manager Terry Collins saying, “We’ll keep it in-house, the way it’s supposed to be.” Harvey is out Sunday but appears on track, at least for now, to take the ball for his next turn in the rotation. Monitor Harvey's status going forward.

Matt Harvey struggles again

Matt Harvey gave up six earned on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings striking out two and walking three in a loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

He also gave up a homer and hit a batter. That's two abysmal starts in a row for Harvey who can't seem to get his stuff under control after being moved up in the rotation. He was doing fine before that so a correction is probably eminent but this dud brings his record to 2-2 with a 5.14 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 35 innings of work.
