Matt Harvey said all the right things, but he’s done that before. Coming off surgery, he insists he’s ready for what could likely be his last year with the Mets, but we’ll know for sure in the season’s fourth game against the Phillies.
Harvey gave up one run in 5.1 innings today against St. Louis and threw 90 pitches in the process.
“You could say I am ready to go,’’ Harvey said. “Wherever they want me to throw, I am ready to go.’’
On the bright side, Harvey reached 95 mph., on the radar gun, including on a strikeout pitch of Tommy Pham to end the fifth. However, for someone who hopes to continually work into the seventh inning, 90 pitches in 5.1 innings is way too many.
Overall, manager Mickey Callaway said Harvey “is where he needs to be,’’ which is healthy
