Mets | Matt Harvey to have another start skipped

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 12:12:44 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will have another start skipped in September in an effort to manage his innings and allow him to pitch in the postseason. Harvey is expected to make four more starts this season, including his next outing against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, Sept. 8. However, Harvey's agent Scott Boras said Friday, Sept. 4, that Harvey had a strict limit of 180 innings mandated by doctors, and exceeding the limit could imperil Harvey's future health.

Fantasy Tip: Four starts would push Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) well over the innings cap outlined by Boras, and it isn't out of the question for him to be skipped more than once this month, especially if New York continues to pad its division lead. Seasonal owners will want to monitor the situation closely, as there could come a time when Harvey is shut down until the playoffs. He remains a high-end arm in all fantasy formats whenever he takes the mound, including at FantasyScore.

Mets | Matt Harvey is fine

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 10:32:13 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey did not travel with the team to Miami this weekend, but the team is saying he's fine.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) labored through his start and win against the Philadelphia Phillies last night and dealt with some dehydration, allowing nine hits and four earned runs while walking one and fanning nine in 6 1/3 innings. He should be fine moving forward, but remember, the Mets still plan on skipping one more of his starts this month to keep his innings under a cap for 2015.

Mets | Matt Harvey earns win Wednesday

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:34:30 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (12-7) allowed four runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings in a victory over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, Sept. 2, with one walk and nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey's ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) streak of six quality starts came to an end Wednesday and the nine hits allowed were tied for the most he has given up in any outing this season. He will make his next start against the Washington Nationals next week.

Mets | Matt Harvey will make start against WAS

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:31:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SP Matt Harvey will not be skipped during the final game of the series against the Washington Nationals next week, even though the team plans to skip one of his starts before the end of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) would likely make four more starts during the regular season if he gets his turn skipped, in order to keep him within the soft cap of 180-185 innings that the club and medical staff established for him during spring training. However, none of the team's pitchers will operate under an innings limit if the team makes the playoffs.

Mets | Matt Harvey has been stingy

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:02:53 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey gave up just one run in 27 innings in four starts in August, and he has an ERA of 0.52 in his last five starts. He is 5-3 with a 1.34 ERA in his last 12 starts going back to June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Going up against a weak-hitting Phillies team on extra rest seems like a win-win for Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) tonight on FantasyScore. He's a strong play worth paying up for.

Mets | Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom could be skipped

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:49:21 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey could be skipped again in the rotation, but it'll depend on where the team is in the standings, according to pitching coach Dan Warthen. Harvey has thrown 160 innings this year and will be capped in the 185-190 range. Warthen also would prefer to skip SP Jacob deGrom once before the end of the season. He has thrown 163 innings in 2015 after throwing 178 2/3 frames last year.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you would never outright dump Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) or deGrom ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) in any leagues, but them missing any further starts knocks down their fantasy value a bit to close out the year. Any rest they get should make them a stronger start on FantasyScore, though.

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.
