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.

Mets | Matt Harvey to start Friday

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:46:35 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) will have an 80-pitch limit in his next spring start against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, March 27, in his fifth Grapefruit League start. Harvey currently has a 1.26 ERA and 9 2/3-innings scoreless streak. He's scheduled to make his season debut April 9 against the Washington Nationals. Harvey has walked just one hitter in 14 1/3 spring innings.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) has displayed great velocity and control this spring in his return from Tommy John surgery. The excellent results have him rising quickly up fantasy draft boards. He will no longer come at an injury discount like he did early in spring. Even though he has a tough matchup in the Nats in his first outing of the year, it'll be very tempting not to go with him at FantasyScore in a matchup against Stephen Strasburg.

Mets | Manager sets front of Mets' rotation

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:05:24 -0700

New York Mets SPs Bartolo Colon, Jacob deGrom and Matt Harvey will pitch the first three games of the season against the Washington Nationals, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Colon ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), deGrom ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) and Harvey ($7,400, 14.8% of cap) are risky options for FantasyScore players with the Mets visiting the high-powered Nationals in their season-opening series. Still, deGrom and Harvey have the strikeout upside to offset some of the risk of a potent line, Colon, though, doesn't.

Mets | Matt Harvey ready for season

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 09:49:37 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) has a 1.26 ERA in four Grapefruit League starts and held the New York Yankees to just two hits in 5 2/3 innings Sunday, March 22. He has walked just one in 14 2/3 frames and has a streak of 9 2/3 scoreless innings going. Manager Terry Collins thinks Harvey is ready to pitch in the regular season after he builds his pitch count a bit. Both Harvey and Collins are impressed with the control that Harvey has had this spring with all of his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey has bounced back really well from Tommy John surgery. Not only is his velocity at pre-surgery levels, but his command has been on point. It's just more reason to draft him as your No. 2 fantasy pitcher this year with upside for plenty more.

Mets | Matt Harvey scheduled to pitch Sunday

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 16:10:53 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) is scheduled to start Sunday, March 22, on an extra day of rest against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey has pitched well this spring, and his velocity has reportedly consistently been in the mid- to high-90s. It appears he'll be ready to start at the beginning of the year -- as expected -- but the cost of owning him will likely rise with every successful spring start. Harvey can be drafted as an SP2 with SP1 upside.
