Reds | Marlon Byrd back in lineup

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:53:34 -0700

Cincinnati Reds OF Marlon Byrd will start in center field and bat fifth against SP Matt Harvey and the New York Mets Saturday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: Byrd ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been swinging the bat well recently. He's hit two homers in his last six games and has eight hits total in those six games. Harvey has pitched splendidly in his last two outings, which could bode poorly for Byrd, but he's a good starting option until he stops this hot streak he's on.

Mets | Matt Harvey in a rut

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 15:39:02 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey has a 7.20 ERA in his last four starts and has given up eight home runs in that span after allowing just seven home runs in 26 starts in 2013 before having Tommy John surgery. Former SP John Smoltz suggested to Mets manager Terry Collins that Harvey is experiencing a Tommy John hangover. Collins said he hopes that Smoltz can talk with Harvey about his current struggles.

Fantasy Tip: If there ever was a time to bench Harvey ($9,000, 18.0% of cap), this stretch would be it as he looks to regroup. If you payed up for him recently on FantasyScore, you've been seriously disappointed. For the time being, be cautious with him in daily games.

Mets | Rough patch for Matt Harvey

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 20:30:55 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey allowed seven earned runs, nine hits and two walks over six innings in a loss Wednesday, June 10, against the San Francisco Giants. He served up a career-high three homers in the loss, and he has given up eight homers since May 23, most of any pitcher in the majors during the span.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000; or 18.0% of cap) hasnít come close to earning his FantasyScore salary lately, so it might be a good idea to get away from him for a couple of games until he irons out his problems.

Mets | Matt Harvey serves up taters

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 18:17:24 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey allowed three home runs in a single game for the first time in his career Wednesday, June 10, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) has given up 12 home runs on the season, matching his combined total from the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Harvey finished with nine hits, two walks and seven earned runs allowed in six innings pitched Wednesday. FantasyScore owners should avoid Harvey for his next scheduled start Monday, June 15, against the Toronto Blue Jays and the best offense in baseball.

Mets | Matt Harvey breaks losing streak

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 04:40:52 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey broke a three-game losing streak when he struck out nine batters Thursday, June 4, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) just needed a bounce-back game after a miniature slump, and he got it. Harvey remains a must-start in all FantasyScore leagues and every other format.

Mets | Matt Harvey fans 11

Fri, 29 May 2015 19:40:35 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey allowed four runs on six hits while striking out 11 in eight innings in a 4-3 loss to the Miami Marlins Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: A three-run home run to Justin Bour ruined an otherwise strong outing, and although he is 0-3 in his last five starts, the good news is that Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) showed no signs of arm fatigue as he piled up 11 strikeouts. You should feel confident about the health of his arm for the time being.

Mets | NY going to six-man rotation

Wed, 27 May 2015 12:15:04 -0700

The New York Mets will use a six-man pitching rotation throughout early to mid-August once SP Dillon Gee is added to the rotation. Gee will join SPs Jacob deGrom, Bartolo Colon, Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jon Niese. The idea is to shave about 30 innings per pitcher and prevent so many arms from going over 200 innings in one season.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't a surprise. With such young arms as Gee ($3,900, 7.8% of cap), Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap), deGrom ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Syndergaard ($6,000, 12.0% of cap), the Mets are interested in preserving the health of pitchers. No pitcher will likely get two starts in a week, which could hurt in yearly leagues, but you will still get one start a week in FantasyScore.

Mets | Matt Harvey to make next start

Tue, 26 May 2015 13:33:35 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey threw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 26, and will be fine to make his next start Friday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) has been suffering from dead arm after he allowed seven earned runs in just four innings in his first bad start of the season his last time out. Harvey will be facing the Miami Marlins this Friday. As one of the worst offensive teams in baseball this year, Harvey should be attractive at FantasyScore, regardless of what he's dealt with recently.

Mets | Matt Harvey may have dead arm

Mon, 25 May 2015 07:15:32 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (fatigue) may be experiencing dead arm, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) struggled in his last start and could be skipped if the team wants to give him time to rest. Owners should monitor the situation, but Harvey is a solid starting option against most teams on FantasyScore when he is healthy.

Mets | Matt Harvey has terrific outing

Mon, 18 May 2015 22:03:17 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey pitched eight scoreless innings against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 18. He allowed six hits while striking out nine batters and walking one.

Fantasy Tip: Harvey ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) has been one of the better pitchers in fantasy so far this season. He has allowed zero runs in four of his eight starts in 2015 and has a 1.98 ERA. He will face the Pittsburgh Pirates in his next start and should be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.
