Mets | Matt Harvey good to go Saturday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:08:21 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (ankle) threw with his ankle taped Thursday, April 23, and is set to make his start against the New York Yankees Saturday, April 25. He originally hurt his left ankle banging into an outfield wall while shagging balls in spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is off to a fine start in his return from Tommy John surgery in 2015, and he should be considered a strong FantasyScore play tomorrow against the strikeout-happy Yanks. Don't let his minor ankle ailment scare you off.

Mets | Matt Harvey nursing ankle injury

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 18:21:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (ankle) is dealing with a mild left ankle sprain, the team said Wednesday, April 22. He is not expected to miss his next scheduled start Saturday, April 25, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he will pitch, and he is 3-0 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through 18 innings, he is a risky play in FantasyScore at $7,700 (or 15.4% of cap). It's uncertain if the injury could flare up during the game. He'll also be making his first-career start at Yankee Stadium, so that isn't exactly the easiest venue to pitch, either. Start him at your own peril.

Mets | Matt Harvey has foot issue

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:21:55 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (foot) is being evaluated for a minor foot injury that he has pitched through in the first month. He will make his next scheduled start Saturday, April 25.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has pitched just fine in the opening month while dealing with a foot issue, going 3-0 with a 3.50 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while striking out 24 hitters in 18 innings. There's no reason to believe his foot will keep him from making a good outing against the New York Yankees, a strikeout-happy team, Saturday.

Mets | Matt Harvey battles illness yet wins

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 14:03:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (illness) allowed four runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts in six innings Sunday, April 19, and he picked up the win. He admitted to media that he felt weak and had been unable to swallow for the past few days.

Fantasy Tip: Not bad for someone who was sick. Harvey ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is still rebounding from Tommy John surgery, but he still looked solid in his latest outing. He's a good play as long as Harvey keeps this up.

Mets | Matt Harvey has owned Phils

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 10:43:23 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey is 4-0 with a 1.08 ERA in five career starts against the Philadelphia Phillies, who he faces Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) is expensive at FantasyScore, but the juice is worth the squeeze against the offensively-challenged Phillies. Harvey fanned nine Washington Nationals in six shutout innings in his season debut last week. He's a must-start Tuesday.

Mets | Matt Harvey makes a statement

Thu, 09 Apr 2015 12:37:01 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey was phenomenal in his season debut against the Washington Nationals Thursday, April 9, tossing six shutout innings while striking out nine and walking just one on four hits. He reached 97 mph with his fastball for his first regular season start since August of 2013. He was limited to 91 pitches in his first start of the year.

Fantasy Tip: The writing was on the wall for Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) after an exceptional spring while coming back from Tommy John surgery. The velocity and control are back for one of the most exciting young pitchers in the game, and he seems primed for a great 2015 season. He's already a very strong choice for daily gamers on days he starts.

Mets | Matt Harvey will be eased into the season

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 13:51:29 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) will have a conservative pitch count in April, according to general manager Sandy Alderson, and manager Terry Collins does not foresee any starting pitcher exceeding 100 pitches early in the season. Alderson noted the organization is still being cautious with Harvery's return from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: While seasonal owners may be happy with the conservative approach with Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of cap), it hurts his early-season appeal for FantasyScore contests. He is also expected to be held to just 90 pitches in his first start against the Washington Nationals Thursday, April 9. Still, it isn't a horrible spot for Harvey with an injury-depleted lineup in the opposing dugout.

Mets | Matt Harvey to have pitch count

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 11:34:00 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will be restricted to around 90 pitches in his first start April 9, against the Washington Nationals. Manager Terry Collins said they'd be delicate with him early on.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of your cap) is still a great SP1 option on FantasyScore in his first turn.

Mets | Matt Harvey closes dominant spring

Thu, 02 Apr 2015 10:41:42 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey tossed four scoreless innings against the St. Louis Cardinals in his final spring start Thursday, April 2. Harvey had a 1.19 ERA and 21 K's in 22 2/3 innings this spring.

Fantasy Tip: The most important thing is he walked just one batter this spring. Typically, pitchers struggle with their release point and control upon returning from Tommy John surgery. It's pretty clear holding him out late last season gave him a chance to kick off the rust to be in peak form for this season. He'll face the Washington Nationals in his first start April 9. The Nats are without Anthony Rendon (knee) and Jayson Werth (shoulder), so Harvey could deliver on his $7,400 (14.8% of your cap) price tag on FantasyScore.

Mets | Matt Harvey dominant again

Fri, 27 Mar 2015 13:05:19 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey lost his 9 2/3-inning spring scoreless streak against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, March 27, but he finished with three hits, one run and five strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings. Harvey's Grapefruit League ERA is no2 1.45 after the 80-pitch effort, and his fastball ranged between 95-98 mph. He didn't allow a walk and has walked just one hitter in 18 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey is 18 months removed from Tommy John surgery, so his control and velocity gains are only mildly surprising. But his excellent spring has surely eliminated him from coming at an injury discount in fantasy drafts. There's plenty of evidence to suggest that taking him as your No. 2 fantasy pitcher will pay big dividends in 2015.
