Sandy Alderson: Fewer than 4 Starts for Matt Harvey

The Mets seem to have some sort of plan for Matt Harvey for the rest of the season and beyond, but it is nothing firm or one that Sandy Alderson wants to tell everyone. One thing is sure — we won’t be seeing much of Harvey for the remainder of the season.

Don’t let the doe eyes fool you!

“At this point, I don’t expect him to make four starts in the regular season,” Alderson said Monday.

So that means he will make three or fewer. Here’s how it will likely shake out: Harvey starts Tuesday in Washington. Then he is skipped and makes one more start, probably against the Yankees. Which brings us to the final series of the season, against the Nationals.

“We have talked about him pitching the last game — or one of the last games — of the season against Washington if that game is meaningful,”Alderson said.

As far as the playoffs?

“How he’s used in the postseason is really going to be a function of how he’s gotten through six months of the regular season,” Alderson said. “I can’t sit here and say he’s going to be available through the entire playoffs, because we don’t know how he will feel and what all of the considerations are at that time. That’s the position we’ve always had. When we get there, we’ll figure it out.”

So issue settled? Probably not. Stay tuned for more Mets drama as the month progresses.
