Mets Demote Matt Harvey to the Bullpen

Mets Demote Matt Harvey to the Bullpen

Lasting just 21 innings total, he now sits at an ERA of 6.00. His future is still in his own hands and it's up to him if he will soon land back in the New York Mets starting rotation.

Harvey set a dubious franchise record last season as a starter.

Regardless of any of that, it certainly isn't a pleasing development for the 29-year-old Harvey (he certainly didn't seem happy in this video). With the process working for the both of them, Callaway is more than confident innings out of the bullpen will work for Harvey as well. As the savvy Callaway noted to both Harvey and the media, if he really did experience some sort of epiphany when he retired 11 of the final 12 batters, then he can take that with him into his new gig.

Harvey was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateal ligament in his right elbow, shutting him down for the season.

The Mets really had no choice but to make Saturday's decision. On the heels of back-to-back losses, the Mets chose Harvey.




The right-hander went seven innings and allowed zero runs while only giving up four hits and two walks. But the bullpen gave up two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, and Jeurys Familia could not save a 3-2 lead in the ninth.

If all goes according to plan, Harvey will be available out of the bullpen beginning on Tuesday, according to Mike Puma of the New York Mets. "My performance hasn't been there and I have to do whatever I have to do to get back in the starting rotation and right now that's go to the bullpen, work on some things, get back to where I need to be, get my sh-t in order". Although it seems worth mentioning that Harvey's free agent stock was already at an all-time low, so if he develops into any semblance of a useful reliever, he could still out-earn what he was likely to make on the open market had he continued to pitch the way he was pitching as a starter.

If Matt Harvey wants to make it back into the Mets starting rotation the way to do it is simple.

However, maybe Harvey moving to the bullpen is a blessing in disguise for the former MLB All-Star. He just needs to get back to where he knows he can be. His 6.00 ERA was by far the highest in the rotation.
