Mets | Agent pleased with Matt Harvey's workload

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 15:25:45 -0800

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey's workload was acceptable, in retrospect, according to his agent Scott Boras. "The funny thing was a lot was said about Matt Harvey not wanting to throw in the playoffs, and yet the entire design of what we were talking about in August was just that -- how we could pare down his innings in September so that he can throw in the playoffs," Boras said. "And frankly, the Mets came out with a very good plan for that after discussion. The doctor agreed with it. It allowed Matt really long periods of rest in September, and frankly it allowed him to perform at probably his best levels because instead of throwing 250 innings, he threw 210."

Fantasy Tip: Through his first 65 career starts, Harvey owns a 2.53 ERA, a 2.65 FIP, a 1.00 WHIP and a 9.5 K/9. He is a fringe fantasy ace, and worth building your virtual rotation around in 2016. Expect the 27-year-old hurler to have his best counting stats in 2016, too, as barring injury, he'll have a full season of starts.

Mets | N.Y. unlikely to trade aces

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 11:53:11 -0800

New York Mets SPs Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz are unlikely to be traded, according to general manager Sandy Alderson. "I can't see it happening," Alderson said. "You never know what comes up. But I think it's unlikely."

Fantasy Tip: All four of these young starters for the Mets will be highly valuable to fantasy owners next season, and all four will come off the board in the early rounds of drafts.

Mets | Mets aces don't have extension discussions

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 11:45:57 -0800

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said the team hasn't discussed multi-year deals with the agents for SPs Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom to this point.

Fantasy Tip: It'll likely happen down the road for these two young studs, especially after they helped carry the Mets to a World Series appearance. Both Harvey and deGrom will be among the elite young fantasy arms in 2016 drafts, and you better expect to overpay to get them.

Mets | Matt Harvey has struggled against lefties

Tue, 27 Oct 2015 11:49:04 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey has particularly liked to throw his fastball to left-handed hitters on the outside of the plate. He had a .676 OPS against lefties this year compared to .544 against righties, and 15 of the 18 home runs he allowed in 2015 were to lefty hitters. The Kansas City Royals are notoriously good fastball hitters, and their lefty hitters like fastballs away. 2B Ben Zobrist (.206/.372/.324), 1B Eric Hosmer (.379/.463/.707), 1B Kendrys Morales (.400/.494/.662), 3B Mike Moustakas (.300/.385/.500) and OF Alex Gordon (.340/.407/.698) all had success against right-handed fastballs away.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey is one of the better young fastball pitchers, but against the best fastball-hitting team in baseball this year, he'll need to effectively mix in his slider and changeup to keep them off balance and be successful, especially against the lefties. Harvey's high innings total after coming off Tommy John surgery will be a narrative in the World Series, as well.

Mets | Matt Harvey to start Game 1

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 13:26:33 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will start Game 1 of the World Series against the Kansas City Royals. He'll be followed by SP Jacob deGrom, SP Noah Syndergaard and SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey had a good season a full year from Tommy John surgery and should be poised to build on it next season. He'll be one of the top few SP options in drafts.

Mets | Matt Harvey could make three more starts

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 10:20:38 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey could pitch three times in the World Series, according to manager Terry Collins. Collins thinks the layoff between the National League Championship Series and the World Series is good for pitchers.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be interesting to see if the Mets try to limit Harvey's innings early next year after he has already surpassed 200 frames in his first season after returning from Tommy John surgery. Regardless, Harvey will be an elite fantasy starter in 2016 drafts.

Mets | World Series rotation named for Mets

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 06:11:51 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, SP Noah Syndergaard, SP Matt Harvey and SP Steven Matz will be the rotation in the World Series.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore won't have daily games in the World Series, but it should be fun to watch no matter who comes out of the American League.

Mets | Matt Harvey in line for Game 5

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:53:59 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (arm) is expected to pitch Game 5 of the National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Oct. 22, if needed, according to manager Terry Collins. Harvey has a dented triceps after being struck with a line drive near his right shoulder during Game 1 of the NLDS Saturday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Durability will be a concern for Harvey ($7,800, 15.6% of cap), which isn't a good thing for fantasy upside. The Chicago bats could also awaken facing him for the second time in less than a week. Harvey checks out as a risky FantasyScore option, if there is a Game 5.
