Scuffling Matt Harvey defiant over spot in Mets rotation

Over his last three starts he has allowed 14 runs on 25 hits in 16 innings, with his latest stinker being last night's six runs on eight hits outing against the Braves. Right now, they're both pitching out of the bullpen, and can be called on to start in a moment's notice. "That is how I'm going to prepare, and that's how I get ready".

Only two years ago, the idea of Matt Harvey earning a demotion to the bullpen would have seemed as insane as, I don't know, the idea of a porn star suing the president.

Down at SunTrust Park, we've got Friday evening Major League Baseball action coming our way as the New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves continue their weekend series.

With the changes in the staff this season and the other pitchers in the rotation, Harvey's status came into question when, after the right-hander allowed six runs in six innings on Thursday in Atlanta, manager Mickey Callaway declined to guarantee him another start. For the time being, though, it will be interesting to see how Callaway utilizes Harvey in his new role with the club.

The young left-hander's record holds at 1-1 with a 4.02 ERA after three starts.

This is the easy answer. I think everybody wants to start. He was named the starter by manager Bruce Bochy and became the first pitcher since Roger Clemens in 2004 to start the All-Star Game in their home ballpark. Callaway, a former pitching coach, and Eiland were hired for their pitching expertise.

That would put him on track to return April 28 against the Padres.

I've only heard great things about the connection between Callaway and Eiland and Harvey. He knows what he's capable of, but it's a matter of getting it together.

This will be a good spot for Harvey to pitch in because they are non-pressure situations. He'll reportedly be available as a reliever beginning on Tuesday. But injuries have gotten in the way, which is why the five pitchers have never taken a turn in the rotation together before now. "I don't blame him". But, if it's not, if he lets up a bunch of runs (even if he's able to pitch six innings), it'll be at that point when the discussion about moving him to the bullpen becomes real for him and the Mets.

"It's inevitable that he's going to make more starts for us this year", Callaway said. Four pitches into his Major League career he struck out Gerardo Parra on an 89 miles per hour slider and began the start of a dazzling debut.
