Matt Harvey Is Demoted to the Mets' Bullpen

The 29-year old, deGrom has been fantastic to start the season as he has a 2.53 ERA so far to go along with a 2-0 record and 40 strikeouts in only 32 innings pitched. Speaking of which, over 80% of you believed at that time that NY should move Harvey to the 'pen. "I think he's motivated to go out there and show everyone that he can start again at some point", he told reporters.

Left-hander Jason Vargas will reportedly take Harvey's spot in the rotation. Harvey wouldn't be obligated to accept such an assignment, by virtue of his five-plus years of service time, and he shouldn't have been castigated had he refused to go to Triple-A Las Vegas. "I can best help this team as a starter". 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.

That's a generous way of putting it and, for Harvey, such comments could soften the blow to his ego if, indeed, the club decides to move him to the bullpen. Harvey and either Lugo or Robert Gsellman could, in theory, form one of the better "bullpen day" tandems east of Houston, but Harvey has been giving up a lot of runs early: He has an 8.25 ERA in innings 1-3 after allowing six over the first three Thursday. A right shoulder injury cost him more than two months last season.

The Mets really had no choice but to make Saturday's decision.

The Mets would move on to the World Series for the first time since 2000 and Harvey would get the start in Game 1 against the Kansas City Royals.

However, whether it was because he was stinging from a poor performance or because he simply hates the idea, Harvey seemed to reject the possibility out of hand, saying, "I'm a starting pitcher". An All-Star in 2013, he missed half of the 2016 season for surgery to alleviate thoracic outlet syndrome.

The one-time ace of the Mets' vaunted pitching staff found out he was being demoted to the bullpen, and wasn't too happy about it. "Everybody uses tons of starters; 11 was the average previous year for every team", he said.

Harvey lobbied to remain in the rotation after the last of his three innings were scoreless. "Right now, I just have to work on some stuff and get people out". No pitcher in Mets history has finished with an ERA as high as Harvey's in 2017; 6.70.
