    • Mets' Matt Harvey: Beat up by Phillies on Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Harvey (5-7) took the loss Friday against the Phillies. He allowed four runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three over four innings. Harvey's rocky, injury-plagued season came to a close Friday in what was his fourth consecutive start in which he was unable to work past the fourth inning. The 28-year-old will wrap up the month of September having allowed 28 earned runs over six starts spanning a total of 22.1 innings (roughly 3.2 innings per start). Two years removed from posting a 2.71 ERA during the Mets' World Series runner-up campaign, Harvey will conclude the 2017 season with a dreadful 6.70 ERA. His fantasy outlook heading into the offseason is especially bleak and he'll likely serve as no more than a late-round flier in deeper fantasy formats in 2018 drafts.

    • Mets' Matt Harvey: Will return to Mets in 2018
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Mets will tender Harvey a contract for 2018, Jon Heyman of reports. While Harvey owns an unsightly 11.78 ERA and 10:9 K:BB in 18.1 innings (five appearances) since returning from the disabled list at the beginning of September, the Mets still see value in him for next season. According to Heyman, he's expected to make a similar figure to his $5.12 million 2017 salary, a price at which the Mets view him as cost efficient. While New York is optimistic about the former ace bouncing back next season, he'll head into 2018 as one of the more volatile fantasy players given his struggles over the past two seasons.

    • Harvey will replace Noah Syndergaard (lat) in the second inning of Saturday's contest against the Nationals,'s Anthony DiComo reports. Instead of earning the "start," Harvey will enter the game in the second inning following Syndergaard's first game back on the mound since April. Besides this slight abnormality, everything else should go on as planned for Harvey, who is coming off a rough start against the Marlins on Monday. During his four September outings, Harvey has posted a 13.19 ERA and 2.72 WHIP in 14.1 innings of work.

    • Mets' Matt Harvey: Likely in Mets' 2018 plans
      By RotoWire Staff

      General manager Sandy Alderson said the Mets plan on tendering a contract to Harvey in 2018, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. Puma threw out a guess of a $6 million arbitration figure in Harvey's final year of that system. That may seem like a lot, considering he holds a 13.19 ERA in the four starts since returning from the disabled list, but the Mets seem more willing to spend one more year trying to fix him instead of seeing him flee and thriving with another organization. The former ace's tumultuous season, in which he's dealt with recovery from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery and a stress injury in his scapula, positions him as one of the most volatile fantasy players heading into next year, considering his offseason and spring news may swing his draft-day price wildly for either better or worse than the risk-reward cost in 2017.

    • Harvey (5-6) allowed seven runs on 12 hits and two walks while striking out two batters through four innings to take the loss against Miami on Monday. Harvey has now surrendered 21 runs through 14.1 innings through four September starts, a brutal span in which he's only struck out eight batters while allowing 32 hits. It's difficult to view Harvey as a viable fantasy option in any setting entering his next projected start against Washington at Citi Field.
