Matt Harvey Moving to the Bullpen

There was no dipping his toes in, Matt Harvey came out of the bullpen for the first time Tuesday night and right into deep water. Baseball will see to that, but the bottom line is winning games.

NY improved to 8-2 on the road and 3-1 against the Cardinals this season. Odds for betting on the game's total stand at -120 for the over and +100 for the under.

Despite the recent funk the Mets have been in, it's refreshing to feel that they're never truly out of a game. The team's pitching will likely fail to maintain the dominance they have provided during the early part of this season, but if hitters like Cespedes continue to improve, that might not matter for a team with extremely high aspirations. Ozuna, who before the game was presented with the Gold Glove award he won as a Marlin last season, misplayed a single into a triple for Bruce. NY has an over/under record of 10-10.

Zack Wheeler has not been the ace that the New York Mets thought they were getting in the Carlos Beltran trade. Wheeler's strikeout/walk rate is 2.14. They are 12-2 in those contests, 3-0 in extras and 4-4 when trailing after seven innings. Wheeler is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in the young season.

As a unit, St. Louis' pitchers have given up 3.5 runs per game overall this season. In fact, if it weren't for his superb 2013 and 2015 campaigns (when he recorded ERAs of 2.27 and 2.71 and struck out 191 and 188 batters), the Mets probably wouldn't be thinking twice about sending Harvey down to Triple-A.


The right-hander went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 2016 and followed that up with a 6.70 ERA and 1.69 WHIP in 19 appearances, including 18 starts, last year. The team has slashed.248/.373/.416 over its last five matchups and is 4-1 SU during that stretch. In the sixth, he walked Tommy Pham, but got out of the inning unscathed. St. Louis was firing on all cylinders in that series, pitching and hitting very well en route to a convincing three wins.

Weaver's hit was the first time this season (43 plate appearances) that an opposing pitcher reached base safely against the Mets. It was the only run he allowed over two innings, but he threw 35 pitches, only 20 of which were strikes. The bullpen has logged an ERA of 3.47, along with a K/9 of 10.40.

However, the Mets' bullpen has struggled mightily in recent weeks, and as a result the team has been needing to rely heavily on its offense to win games. He tossed a second inning, a scoreless frame that included a walk.

Entering this set, Asdrubal Cabrera was way out in front for the Mets with 28 hits, 12 RBI, four homers and 16 runs.

What gives me the most hope was his last start. The over has cashed in eight of those games, compared to seven that've gone under in such games. He has hit.333 (5-15) with a home run against the Dominican born right hander. DeJong is 6-for-20 with seven RBIs and four runs scored over the last five outings and he now faces a NY team that he has tormented in his young career.
