MLB Note - New York Mets Harvey, Matt

Sep 23, 2017 - 8:30 AM RHP Matt Harvey will hope the first relief appearance of his career will allow him to snap out of the worst slump of his career Saturday night, when he is scheduled to be the second pitcher for the Mets in the middle game of a three-game series against the Washington Nationals at Citi Field. Harvey will be piggybacking with RHP Noah Syndergaard, who will start and throw the first inning in his first major league appearance since Apr. 30. The skidding Harvey lost his second straight start on Monday night, when he gave up seven runs on 12 hits and two walks while striking out two over four innings as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 13-1. Harvey is 1-3 with a 13.19 ERA in four starts since Sept. 2, when he came off the disabled list following a two-month absence due to a shoulder injury. His overall ERA of 6.38 would be the highest single-season mark for any Mets pitcher who has made at least 17 starts. Harvey is 3-6 with a 2.99 ERA in 14 career starts against the Nationals, whom he has faced more than any other opponent.
