Solid start for Mets' Matt Harvey
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Mets' pitcher Matt Harvey celebrated his 26th birthday with a solid start against the Cardinals. 

Harvey threw 80 pitches in four and a third innings, striking out five. He gave up a run on three hits and didn't walk a batter. 

"It’s all the process now," manager Terry Collins said. "He’s obviously healthy."

Harvey is returning from Tommy John surgery that cost him all of last season. 

"To know I can throw strikes with everything right now, I’m pretty happy," Harvey said, per the New York Times.

Harvey has a 1.45 ERA this spring with 17 strikeouts in 18 and two thirds innings.

Mets GM: Ticket sales a factor in choosing Harvey's spot in rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson indicated Tuesday having Matt Harvey slot into the third spot in the rotation was partly impacted by ticket sales for the team's first home series against the Phillies from April 13-16.

Harvey, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, is slated to make his second start of the season April 14, which would be the team's second home game. Reigning NL Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom is slated to start the home opener April 13.

While many factors went into choosing Harvey's spot in the rotation, having him pitch the second home game of the season will likely increase ticket sales, according to ESPN. Last season, the Mets drew 42,442 on Opening Day at Citi Field against the Nationals and 29,146 in the second game.

"Look, we take a lot of things into account," Alderson said. "I think the first and foremost is: Does any pitcher deserve to pitch in a game of that sort? And I think that was the primary focus. You're assuming people are more interested in seeing Harvey pitch than Jacob. That's probably true, but not something that I would acknowledge. There are lots of secondary considerations."

When asked if ticket sales were among those secondary considerations, Alderson said with a smile, "Could be."

The Mets will start Bartolo Colon on April 6 in the regular-season opener against the Nationals, ESPNNewYork.com reported Sunday.

The team confirmed the report Monday. Colon is set to become the team's oldest Opening Day starter ever, surpassing Tom Glavine in 2007. He went 15-13 with a 4.09 ERA and 151:30 K:BB ratio in 202 1/3 innings.
