New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will receive regular starts down the stretch, but those outings will be half-outings, meaning another pitcher will be used after Harvey for multiple innings. That plan is likely to start Sunday, Sept. 20, against the New York Yankees. RP Logan Verrett is replacing Harvey against the Miami Marlins Monday, Sept. 14. Ps Sean Gilmartin, Erik Goeddel and Tim Stauffer are candidates to pitch after Harvey in his next starts, according to manager Terry Collins. The Mets want to keep Harvey sharp for a postseason run while also keeping his overall innings down. Harvey is currently at 171 2/3 innings, and agent Scott Boras recently suggested that exceeding 180 innings could be harmful to his client's long-term health.
Fantasy Tip: Because Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) won't pitch deep into another game this regular season, he should be avoided on FantasyScore, especially at his high salary. Those in single-year formats should consider dropping him for a more useful arm down the stretch, too.
