Overall, Harvey's 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA.
The Braves lead the National League with 104 runs scored and are four games over.500 for the first time since April 2015. "I think he's motivated to go out there and show everyone that he can start again at some point", he told reporters. Right now I need to work on it, that's in the bullpen. Zack Wheeler has pitched solidly since returning from Class AAA Las Vegas, and Jason Vargas, whom the Mets signed to a two-year, $16 million deal in the off-season, is expected to return from a hand injury this coming week.
The next time Matt Harvey takes the mound, he'll do so as a reliever.
"He can help us.it's inevitable that he's going to make more starts for us this year".
Harvey will head to the bullpen, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Harvey was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateal ligament in his right elbow, shutting him down for the season.

The open looks that the Sixers had while shooting an unbelievable 18 for 28 from three-point range in Game 1 suddenly vanished. Granted, Dario Saric put up 23 points himself and, behind his efforts, was Ben Simmons who finished the night with 24.
Newcomb made his major league debut against the Mets in June and will be facing them for the fourth time after going 1-2 with a 2.70 ERA versus NY in 2017. In 26 innings over four starts, he's allowed 26 hits, four home runs and four walks.
"We admire the passion and the pride he has, and that's a big part of what's going to get him back to being a productive guy", Ricco said of Harvey.
Harvey acknowledged that he can help the team from the bullpen but isn't happy with the news. Given contract guidelines, mainly because he's got more than five decades at the major leagues, Harvey would have needed to approve a demotion, anyway. "I think that can be the case with Matt Harvey". Jeurys Familia entered the game and gave up the tying run, the Mets would lose the game and the series in 12 innings by a final of 7-2.
Harvey lobbied to remain in the rotation after the last of his three innings were scoreless.
Looks like he's either going to have to change his mindset or else he's not going to have a place to pitch in NY for very much longer. No pitcher in Mets history has finished with an ERA as high as Harvey's in 2017; 6.70. "I have to suck it up and go out there and do everything I can to get things back in gear".
