Harvey No Stranger to Injuries

The setback represents just another injury woe for the ace, who has struggled with consistency throughout the 2016 season.

Harvey dealt with a blood clot in his bladder in late March, but it didn’t prevent him from taking the mound on Opening Day. However, the 2015 National League Comeback Player of the Year didn’t look like himself over the first month of the season.

He went 1-3 over his first four starts with a 5.24 ERA, 14 strikeouts and eight walks. Some poor mechanics may have been to blame.

According to Newsday‘s Marc Carig, Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Harvey was “collapsing his back leg in the stretch,” which hindered his consistency.

All told, Harvey is 4-10 this season with a career-worst 4.86 ERA, 1.486 WHIP, 76 strikeouts and 25 walks.

Manager Terry Collins can take solace in the fact that he has one of the strongest rotations in baseball to help compensate for Harvey’s absence. Between Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Bartolo Colon and Steven Matz, the Mets have enough firepower to keep opposing batters at bay.
