Harvey allowed one run on six hits and no walks before exiting. The young right-hander may have tweaked his back while running the bases after he reached on a single in the bottom of the seventh inning. He was pulled from the ballgame after going out to make his warm-up pitches before the eighth.
No word on whether Harvey will be able to make his next start, but the good news is that his early exit had nothing to to with his arm. Zack Wheeler could have his timeline moved up if the Mets decide to skip him.
Harvey, 24, has a 2.10 ERA across 13 starts this season. With six whiffs today, he now holds the National League lead with 95 strikeouts.
