2017 Mets Season Review: Matt Harvey’s season was a complete disaster

2017 Mets Season Review: Matt Harvey’s season was a complete disaster

The former ace not only didn’t return to form, but he completely imploded in 2017. Coming into 2017, it would have been foolish to expect Matt Harvey to immediately return to being the “Dark Knight.” The 28-year-old was never going to return to being an elite pitcher right off the heels of surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. There aren’t too many pitchers who have had TOS, but enough have had it that we at least know the recovery from the operation is not a quick process and fully returning to form could take several years, if it happens at all. But nobody could have...

NEW YORK (AP) - Following a painful season, the injury-riddled New York Mets are making changes to their coaching staff and medical department. Two days after Terry Collins stepped down as manager, the team announced Tuesday that longtime pitching coach Dan Warthen will not return in that role next year ...

Final Score: Phillies 11, Mets 0—Cripes

We welcome the sweet embrace of the off-season. The Phillies defeated the Mets 11-0 this afternoon at Citizen’s Bank Park, putting the Mets’ season to bed and, with it, the managerial career of Terry Collins. The afternoon began with a short, two-inning start from the rehabbing Noah Syndergaard, who looked quite good, walking one and giving up no hits while striking out two and hitting 101 miles per hour with his fastball. He would be relieved by Chris Flexen who, along with some defensive miscues by Dominic Smith, gave up six runs in the fourth inning, putting the game out of reach...

New York Mets: Matt Harvey takes the loss in final start of “nightmare” season

The New York Mets pitching staff suffered through its fair share of misfortune and disappointment in 2017. Perhaps no pitcher epitomized that disappointment more than Matt Harvey. The 28-year-old picked up the loss in Friday’s 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies. He allowed four runs on seven hits, along with three walks […] The post New York Mets: Matt Harvey takes the loss in final start of “nightmare” season appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Mets Morning News: Dreadful pitching dooms Mets in loss to Phillies

Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets It was the usual sort of night for the 2017 Mets. Matt Harvey was ineffective over four innings of work, before giving way to Hansel Robles, who was equally ineffective in relief. The Mets were 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position, and two solo homers by Jose Reyes and Dominic Smith were the lone bright spots on the night as the Mets lost 6-2 in a game that wasn’t even that close.

Mets vs. Phillies recap: Harvey rocked one last time in 2017

Mets vs. Phillies recap: Harvey rocked one last time in 2017

The Mets lost their opener in Philadelphia, and Matt Harvey struggled once again. In his final start of the 2017 season, Matt Harvey pitched pretty much the same way that he had for the rest of the year. He gave up four runs, all of the earned, in four innings, and he struck out just three opposing batters while walking the same number. It’s very, very clear that the Harvey who returned from surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is not the same Harvey who returned from Tommy John surgery just two-and-a-half years ago. While the biggest turmoil surrounding the Mets right now is their...

Final score: Phillies 6, Mets 2—One down, two to go

The Mets lost to the Phillies in a game that wasn’t particularly close. In their first game of their final series of the season, the Mets were beaten by the Phillies by a 6-2 score. As was often the case over the course of the season, Matt Harvey struggled. He gave up four runs, all of them earned, with three strikeouts and three walks in four innings. He threw 76 pitches in total and finishes his year with a 6.70 ERA. Hansel Robles gave up a pair of runs in two innings, as well, and the Mets mustered just two runs. The first of those came on a Jose Reyes home run in the first inning, and...

Mets plan to tender Matt Harvey

Mets plan to tender Matt Harvey

The Mets are planning to tender Matt Harvey a contract for next season, sources told Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. This comes four days after Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters that he likes “the idea of him being back” in 2018. The 28-year-old Harvey is eligible for arbitration and is expected to make a little more than the $5.12 million salary he has this season. An All-Star in 2013 who helped the Mets reach the 2015 World Series, Harvey has not pitched at an elite level since then. Last year, he went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP in 17 starts before being shut...

Mets manager Terry Collins plans to remain in baseball next year

Mets manager Terry Collins plans to remain in baseball next year

The 68-year-old manager is not ready to leave baseball just yet. Speculation has been rampant in recent weeks about the uncertain future of Mets manager Terry Collins. The 68-year-old is the oldest manager in baseball, and is in the final year of his contract with the Mets. Reports have circulated that Collins is likely on his way out, and the Mets are already thinking about replacements. But even though he may not be back with the Mets next season, Collins himself has no plans to hang it up. In an interview with The Record on Tuesday, the skipper admitted he plans to be doing...

Mets will tender Matt Harvey a contract for next season

The club may target relievers, not starters, this offseason. The Mets plan to tender a contract to Matt Harvey for the 2018 season, according to John Heyman, who mentions that the front office is encouraged with Harvey’s recent velocity. That’s a positive sign for a player who has had both Tommy John surgery and surgery for Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. After putting up a sub-3.00 ERA in each of his first three seasons, Harvey has a 5.71 ERA over 181.1 innings over the past two seasons. The Connecticut native has seen his strikeout ratedecrease in every season of his career. Sandy Alderson...

Game #154 Strasburg vs Syndergaard/Harvey tandem

In 2015, names like Stephen Strasburg, Noah Syndergaard, and Matt Harvey were some of the marquee names in the game of baseball. Today, Stephen Strasburg is still an All-Star and Syndergaard and Harvey have been oft-injured shadows of their 2015 … The post Game #154 Strasburg vs Syndergaard/Harvey tandem appeared first on TalkNats.com.

Mets' Syndergaard returns against Nationals (Sep 23, 2017)

NEW YORK -- Six months ago, the concept of the New York Mets using both Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey in the same September game against the Washington Nationals would have conjured up thoughts of the Mets pulling out all the stops to win a pivotal late-season clash against their fiercest division rivals.
