On Friday night, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey returned to the mound following his three-day suspension. As he deals with the problems in his personal life, Harvey was rocked against the Milwaukee Brewers.
He gave up five runs – and three home runs – over five innings in the loss. Harvey was laboring through his five innings – and gave up two runs during this stretch.
Then, in the sixth, instead of removing him, Mets manager Terry Collins elected to send Harvey back out to the mound. He was rocked, as he gave up two home runs to Eric Sogard and Orlando Arcia after beginning the inning with a lead-off single to Keon Broxton.
Prior to his exit, Harvey had struck out five batters and walked five more. He’s allowed 10 home runs so far this season in 40 innings of work.
He is returning from thoracic outlet syndrome, which he had surgery in last summer. He’s a work in progress – but depending on how he does here on out, the Mets could likely decide to deal their former ace to get rid of their headache.
