      Mets' Matt Harvey: Has no innings limits restriction

      Manager Terry Collins said Monday that he doesn't anticipate any innings limit restrictions for Harvey in 2016. Innings limits were a major topic of conversation for Harvey, the Mets and his agent Scott Boras. Harvey ended up throwing 189.1 innings during the regular season, up from 178.1 in 2013 before Tommy John surgery, while also making four starts in the post-season. This news means that Harvey, barring injury, will not be skipped or shut down during the season.

      Mets to start Matt Harvey in Game 1 of World Series

      Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will start Game 1 of the World Series at Kansas City on Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Harvey will head the Mets' rotation in the season-ending series, with Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, and Steven Matz to follow. If the series goes the distance, Harvey will also take the hill in Game 5 and could be available out of the bullpen for a deciding Game 7. In two starts (both victories) this postseason, he's allowed five runs (four earned) on 11 hits and four walks, while striking out 16 in 12.2 innings.

      Mets' Matt Harvey: Appears in line to start Game 1

      Harvey appears to be the favorite to start Game 1 of the World Series for the Mets, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports. Manager Terry Collins even alluded to the possibility that Harvey could pitch three times in the World Series, if necessary. This is pretty alarming considering that it wasn't long ago that Harvey's camp was talking about a potential shut down. It speaks to just how good Harvey has been this postseason -- 2.84 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 12.2 innings -- but it also speaks to how fatigued Jacob deGrom appears to be, according to Collins. If Harvey starts Game 1 deGrom will start Game 2.

      Mets' Matt Harvey: Likely to start Game 5

      Harvey appears likely to start Game 5 if necessary, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Harvey was hammered by a come-backer in Game 1, but he managed to stay in the game and continue pitching. Some thought he might have his next scheduled start pushed back, but manager Terry Collins seemed to erase any doubt of that happening saying, "He looks like he'll be ready for Game 5." That decision will likely be finalized in the coming days, however, so stay tuned for more information.

      Mets' Matt Harvey: Dealing with swelling, scheduled to start Game 5

      Manager Todd Collins indicated Monday that Harvey is dealing with some swelling and soreness in his triceps, but is still scheduled to pitch Game 5 for the Mets at his point, Marc Carig of Newsday reports. Harvey was struck by a line drive in Game 1, but was able to continue pitching. However, it appears the issue hasn't completely disappeared, so there's a chance he could be scratched from the start. There's still a chance that the Mets could sweep the series, which would then leave an opportunity for Harvey to rest rather than pitch Game 5, but everything should sort itself out before that point is reached.

      Mets SP Matt Harvey stuck with tough-luck loss in final regular season start

      Mets starter Matt Harvey (13-8) was brilliant on Saturday in a losing effort, allowing one unearned run on four hits while striking out 11 across six innings in a 2-0 defeat to the Nationals. If it weren't for Max Scherzer's absurd performance, Harvey would have likely been the winning pitcher on Saturday. In any case, the dominating performance is a fantastic sign for Mets fans going into the postseason. The most impressive stat is that Harvey drew 22 swinging strikes in just 91 pitches. He finished the season with a 2.71 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 29 starts this season.

      Mets starter Matt Harvey (13-7) picked up the playoff-clinching victory for the Mets on Saturday, surrendering nine hits and two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings in a 10-2 defeat of the Reds. He struck out six. Harvey was able to muster his first quality start in September at a critical time, while pitching the furthest he has into a game since an Aug. 11 appearance against Colorado. After a rocky start to the month in which he surrendered 17 hits and 11 earned runs over 11 2/3 innings in two starts, Harvey has now generated a sparkling 1.61 ERA over his last pair of trips to the mound. Harvey displayed solid control Saturday, refraining from handing out any free passes and throwing 73 of his 97 pitches for strikes. He also did not allow a ball to leave the yard, the seventh time over his last nine starts that he has not surrendered a homer.
