Mets send Harvey to bullpen

"We're not really sure what's going to happen with our rotation once Vargas gets back", Callaway said. They are not exclusively in the business of Matt's personal goals. With a team off day Monday, the Mets could choose to skip Harvey's spot in the rotation if Vargas is indeed ready.

I agree that the final three innings were a huge positive for Harvey. "What we are trying to do as a team is do what's best for the team and for the players". The goal is to win. He is 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, six walks and 30 strikeouts over 25 innings of work this year. But, much like it was the case for so many pitchers in the past, this has become the story of the boy who cried wolf. "I know that the results aren't there".

As predicted, Matt Harvey is not happy with the decision from his skipper.

Asked Friday about Harvey's future, Callaway said, "I think he made that pretty clear yesterday, that he wants to be a starter, and I don't blame him".

The handling of Harvey was rsquo; manager & clearly one of Callaway & rsquo; s first tests whilst the Mets.

Following Matt Harvey's latest start - a six-inning, eight-hit, six-run stinker versus the Atlanta Braves - there were murmurs that he could be moved to the bullpen.

This is the easy answer. I think everybody wants to start. Callaway, a former pitching coach, and Eiland were hired for their pitching expertise. Just yesterday, he candidly told reporters that he sees himself as a starting pitcher.

Callaway said it is "hard to pinpoint" the reason for Harvey's struggles. Mickey and Dave were both once big-league pitchers. They've worked with pitchers that have been through this, including Davis.

Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman could also be moved from the bullpen into the rotation after they each started games most of last season. So, in the event a mysterious injury doesn't pop up for him, Harvey should get the ball again in five days. And I don't blame him. That transition period ultimately jumpstarted Carrasco's career, and was no doubt a significant contributing factor in his development into a pitcher who ranks seventh in Major League Baseball in fWAR since the start of the 2015 season.

If general manager Sandy Alderson can find a way, trading Harvey before this summer's trade deadline would be considered a victory as the Mets could get something for the troubled and struggling arm. And if it's the only best, honest move left for him to make, he should consider it.
