He saw Matz author six strong, one-run innings. If they ask me to do it, I will do it. If they need me to do it, that's fine.
Yup, he saw just about everything.
Harvey was drafted by the Mets in the first round of the 2010 draft from the University of North Carolina and made his major league debut on July 26, 2012 with 11 strikeouts in 5.1 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Now, he is viewed as a problem for the New York Mets in the clubhouse. That could be a concern for the Yankees, but they are hurting for more pitching.
For positives, there was that edge Matz employed. Harvey is owed roughly $4.46 million for the remainder of this season, and the way teams have been tight-fisted with cash lately, he won't be considered a wise investment, not with a 6.00 ERA and.849 OPS in four starts. Mets GM Sandy Alderson said Friday the team was cutting Harvey from its roster after the struggling former ace refused a minor league assignment. "It was more what he was doing in between pitches that was really noticeable". The Mets officially designated Harvey for assignment Saturday, so they could either trade him in a week or he would become a free agent May 12. The two attractions for Harvey: South Beach and maybe getting a few shots at the Mets.
"Obviously, we're disappointed. Especially Steve putting on such a good start". He returned in 2015 and helped the Mets reach the World Series.
"He moved the ball around, he was up and down, good slider", Callaway said. Also, CEO Derek Jeter has shown affection for Harvey in the past, if you count making him the NYC bureau chief of the Players Tribune. Asdrubal Cabrera delivered his second hit, a single to center.
With veteran Adrian Gonzalez off to a sluggish start and hot-hitting Brandon Nimmo stuck without an opportunity for at-bats, Bruce is expected to receive at least one start at first base on the team's next homestand, a club source told The Post on Saturday. Todd Frazier followed with his own rocket, but directly to shortstop Trevor Story and Cabrera was doubled off. "All offseason and spring training working toward it, just to feel like I knew the ins and outs, but when I do go over there I just try to feel real natural".
Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery in Oct. 2013 and missed the entire 2014 season. In the wake of that game, Callaway talked about Matz' in-game routine. "We felt that it was worth trying ourselves".
"The one thing Mickey gave me was having an in-between pitch routine and that was something I was mindful of today".
"This was a long time coming", Alderson said at a press conference Friday.
