Mets | Matt Harvey to be skipped Sunday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:47:47 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will have his next start skipped Sunday, Aug. 23, and RP Logan Verrett will make the spot start against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) will make his next start a week from today against the suddenly hot Boston Red Sox. Harvey should still be a pretty solid FantasyScore option that day. With the Mets finding ways to rest their young starters down the stretch, their fantasy value will take a hit. You may want to seriously consider stacking Rockies hitters against Verrett and whatever other bullpen arm New York uses that day on FantasyScore.

Mets | Matt Harvey may have next start skipped

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:46:55 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey may have his start against the Colorado Rockies skipped Sunday, Aug. 23, as a means to conserve his innings, according to manager Terry Collins. SP Logan Verrett would make the start, if the Mets decide to rest Harvey.

Fantasy Tip: A six-man rotation when SP Steven Matz ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) returns from the disabled list isn't out of the question, either. The Mets are looking to keep their young flamethrowers healthy, and clearly are considering all possible options. Harvey ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) being skipped is a short-term negative, but should also help to keep him pitching through the end of the season. Stay tuned for updates. Verrett cannot be started with confidence in any format if he receives the nod to take the hill Sunday.

Mets | NY starters to be rested down the stretch

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 10:14:53 -0700

New York Mets starting pitchers will be given more rest in September with the return of SP Steven Matz (lat) after rosters expand on September 1. RP Logan Verrett will likely receive a spot start or two in September to allow one of the team's marquee starters to be skipped. Matz has made one rehab start for Class A St. Lucie. SP Matt Harvey has tossed 154 innings and is on pace for roughly 15 or so more than the team would like. SP Noah Syndergaard is at 135 1/3 innings between the majors and minors, and he tossed 138 innings last season. There's less urgency in shaving innings off of SP Jacob deGrom's workload. He's at 146 2/3 innings after throwing 178 2/3 innings last season.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets will go with a six-man rotation when Matz ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) returns from the DL. Less starts and less innings down the stretch will slightly devalue the Mets' marquee starters for their fantasy owners.

Mets | Matt Harvey spins quality outing

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 19:13:01 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey pitched eight scoreless innings with four strikeouts and just four hits allowed during the Mets' 4-0 win over the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) entered with a 1.94 ERA while limiting opponents to a .554 OPS through 60 1/3 innings over his previous nine starts, so it is just more of the same from the Dark Knight. Still, there is one concerning pattern, as he now has just 53 strikeouts over his past 68 1/3 innings. It is a small issue when you're rolling through 10 starts with a sub-2.00 ERA, though. Continue to view Harvey as a fringe fantasy ace in all fantasy formats.

Mets | Matt Harvey is under control

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 20:05:00 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey is scheduled to face the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Aug. 11. He threw seven scoreless innings last time out, and he hasn't walked a batters over his past 20 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000. 18.0% of cap) has an ultra-favorable matchup against the Rockies and Chris Rusin, who hasn't won since late June.

Mets | NY to use spot starter soon

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 17:17:53 -0700

The New York Mets tentatively plan to use a spot starter on their next road trip, and Ps Dillon Gee and Logan Verrett are the primary candidates to receive a start. The Mets are looking for ways to slow the increasing innings totals for young SPs Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: You can ignore Gee and Verrett in all formats, since they're likely to only have the one start. This is just another reminder that the Mets' young starters will have one less start down the stretch. It also looks plausible that they'll go back to a six-man rotation when Steven Matz (lat) is ready to return around the beginning of September.

Mets | Matt Harvey not as good on road

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 12:14:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey has lost his last three road starts and has allowed nine walks and struck out seven in 12 innings in his last two starts on the road. He's 3-0 with a 1.30 ERA in his last five home starts. Harvey is 1-2 with a 4.14 ERA in six careers starts against the Miami Marlins, who he faces Wednesday, Aug. 5. He's allowed eight runs with 18 strikeouts and just one walk in 14 innings in his two starts against the Fish this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ignore the road numbers for Harvey ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) tonight against the lowly Marlins. Miami has the worst OPS in the league (.651) against right-handed pitchers this year. Harvey is an excellent play on FantasyScore as one of your two starting pitchers.

Mets | Matt Harvey crushed by Nats

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 20:44:11 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey allowed five runs - four earned - over seven innings in a loss Monday, July 20, against the Washington Nationals. He also walked four times after entering with just three or more walks once in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000; or 18.0% of cap) entered with 13 scoreless innings against the Nats this season, and a career 0.68 ERA against them. He killed FantasyScore owners against a team he typically dominates. Consider this an anomaly until this becomes the rule and not the exception.

Mets | Matt Harvey struggling with control

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 17:11:46 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey has issued 12 walks over his past 15 innings part way through the game Monday, July 20, against the Washington Nationals. Harvey had walked 12 batters over his first 11 starts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) has a walk rate of just 2.10 for the season, but he has allowed more than that in six consecutive starts. Owners don't have much choice other than to hope Harvey soon finds his control.

Mets | NYM to return to five-man rotation

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:50:44 -0700

The New York Mets have decided to revert back to a five-man rotation because the team did not want to commit to anyone as a spot starter, according to manager Terry Collins. This means SP Noah Syndergaard will start on regular rest against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, July 22, with SPs Matt Harvey and Jacob DeGrom starting against the Nats Monday, July 20, and Tuesday, July 21, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets had instituted the six-man rotation as a way to limit the innings of their young starters, although a return to the traditional five-man rotation appeared inevitable after SP Stephen Matz (lat) landed on the disabled list. Collins still plans to use spot starters down the line as a way to make sure the innings don't pile up as the season progresses.
