Matt Harvey set to make rehab start Saturday

Matt Harvey, who has been on the DL since June 15 due to a right shoulder stress injury, will begin a rehab assignment on Saturday for the Single-A Brooklyn Cyclones. The Mets have indicated that if all goes well on Saturday, he will make at least one more rehab start in the minors before coming off the DL and rejoining the Mets. As such, Harvey could be back as soon as late-August.

Fantasy Impact

In 13 starts in 2017, Harvey owns an unimpressive 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 70 1/3 IP. He also owns a somewhat mediocre 54:35 K:BB ratio. Despite the poor stats, it is unclear to what extent his recovery from his 2016 surgery and current injury played into the poor start to his season. Harvey is certainly worth a flier in deeper leagues where he may have been dropped by frustrated owners and could potentially serve as a difference maker down the stretch if he can regain some of his "2015-form".

Matt Harvey to miss several weeks

Matt Harvey was diagnosed with a stress injury to the scapula in his throwing shoulder on Thursday. This injury will shut Harvey down for several weeks.

Fantasy Impact

This news is no real surprise considering Harvey was throwing in the high 80s on Wednesday night in his abbreviated start against the Cubs. Harvey, who complained of fatigue after his start on Wednesday, owns a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season. The Mets should make a corresponding DL move with Harvey in the coming day or two allowing fantasy owners to stash him for what could, hopefully, be a second half rebound. Owners should expect Harvey back after the All Star Break at this point.

Matt Harvey to have 'fatigued' arm examined

Matt Harvey told reporters that he will have his arm examined as it was feeling 'tired' and 'not working at all' in Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Harvey's struggles continued Wednesday, and it's been a miserable season for the former ace. Time will tell if he's dealing with a significant injury or if the Mets will manufacture something to allow Harvey time to work on his issues.

Matt Harvey throws five shutout innings

Matt Harvey tossed five shutout innings on Friday against the Braves in a 3-2 loss. Harvey allowed four hits while walking two and striking out three batters on 104 pitches.

Fantasy Impact

An encouraging start for Harvey but until he can string together a few good starts fantasy owners should stay away from the 28-year-old right-hander in standard 10 and 12-team mixed leagues. Harvey hasn't pitched more than six innings in a start since April 21.

Matt Harvey's command not getting any better

Matt Harvey received a no-decision Friday against the Pirates, allowing six runs in five innings on five hits and four walks, while striking out five. Harvey now has 32 walks in 61 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Harvey has walked at least four in four of his last five starts, and legitimately looks as if he has no idea where the pitch will go when he lets it go out of his hand. Pitchers who undergo thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, like Harvey, often take several months to round back into form, but Harvey's current struggles with his command make it nearly impossible to start him in anything other than a deep NL-only league right now.
