    As we heard last week, Matt Harvey is embarking on a six-to-eight week throwing program to rehab his partially-torn elbow ligament rather than undergo Tommy John surgery. Interestingly, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York today that he would like to see Harvey test himself in the prospect-rich Arizona Fall…

  3. Stephen Strasburg is the third-fastest to reach 500 career strikeouts

    Sep 22, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    With a fifth-inning strikeout of Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich, Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg became the third-fastest — in terms of innings pitched — to reach 500 career strikeouts, tweets James Wagner of the Washington Post. The two to do it faster: former Cubs teammates Kerry Wood and Mark Prior. Strasburg entered tonight’s start with a…

    Zack Wheeler Getty

    According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets have decided to shut down Zack Wheeler after he complained of shoulder stiffness following his most recent start. The 22-year-old was slated to make one more start on Monday against the Reds, but that won’t happen now. The shoulder issue isn’t a major concern and…

  5. Matt Harvey apologizes on the Dan Patrick Show

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    We talked about Matt Harvey’s adventures in product-pitching yesterday.  Today he returned to the scene of the (minor) crime. The Dan Patrick Show, where he apologized and tried to explain himself.

  6. Matt Harvey has had a very educational day

    Sep 18, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey Naked

    Here’s a fun little inside baseball media secret: players occasionally make themselves available for interviews in exchange for being allowed to talk about some marketing initiative or product they’re shilling or what have you. It happens more than you might know. While, on some level, yes, you can view it as a quid pro quo, it’s…

  7. Matt Harvey will put off surgery, attempt rest and rehab

    Sep 17, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    UPDATE, 7:29 p.m. ET: The Mets confirmed Tuesday night that Harvey will try a two-month throwing program and see how his elbow responds. This according to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin. ***************** 2:46 p.m. ET: Mets right-hander Matt Harvey met with Dr. James Andrews yesterday to determine which course of action to take with his partially…

  8. Is there a speed limit for pitchers?

    Sep 17, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Speed Limit

    An interesting story at the New York Times about the research into injuries to pitchers who throw hard: Fleisig, a biomedical engineer, knows what an arm can handle, and years of research give him the confidence to answer one of baseball’s more intriguing questions: Is there a limit to how fast a human being can…

  9. Matt Harvey met with Dr. James Andrews

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey was in Florida to meet with Dr. James Andrews for his second opinion. He met him. And … we don’t know anything yet: Matt Harvey saw Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla. today for a second opinion on his right elbow. — New York Mets (@Mets) September 16, 2013 Harvey is on his…

  10. Are pitch counts and early shutdowns actually helping pitchers?

    Sep 14, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    strasburg getty

    The Nationals’ decision to shut down starter Stephen Strasburg after his September 7 start last year was controversial, starting a debate that wasn’t even close to settled as the 2013 regular season was under way. The Nationals won the NL East title last season and went into the NLDS against the Cardinals without Strasburg. The…

  11. Brandon Beachy’s season is over

    Sep 12, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Brandon Beachy

    All of us who are convinced that Matt Harvey should go get Tommy John surgery yesterday should probably remind ourselves that it’s not ALWAYS a routine thing. Take Brandon Beachy who hasn’t been able to get right this year: Beachy said today he’s not where he wants to be. Had played some catch earlier this…

  12. Matt Harvey to get a second visit with Dr. Andrews

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Matt Harvey still hasn’t decided if he’s going to have surgery or not. But he’s got another visit with Dr. Andrews scheduled for Monday. His thoughts: Matt Harvey going to see Dr. Andrews on Monday. He remains ‘optimistic.’ #Mets — Jeff Roberts (@TheJRob) September 10, 2013   Maybe he should ask Dr. Boras how he…

  13. Matt Harvey will visit with Dr. James Andrews this week

    Sep 8, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    matt harvey mets getty

    Mets general manager Sandy Alderson told SiriusXM’s Inside Pitch on Sunday morning that starter Matt Harvey will see Dr. James Andrews this week for a second opinion on his injured right elbow. Harvey has maintained that he wants to avoid surgery and rehab his torn ulnar collateral ligament instead, even suggesting to fans that he’ll…

  14. Ringolsby: Jorge De La Rosa worthy of Cy Young consideration

    Sep 7, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Jorge De La Rosa

    Rockies lefty starter Jorge De La Rosa is worthy of Cy Young consideration, argues Tracy Ringolsby in his latest column on MLB.com. My initial reaction to the article was that he was intentionally exaggerating to make a point, but he has covered the Rockies for a while, so maybe he legitimately believes this. Ringolsby writes:…

  15. Jose Fernandez one-hits the Nationals over seven innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez padded his NL Rookie of the Year and Cy Young cases with seven outstanding innings against the Nationals tonight, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The Nationals stood no chance, recording just one hit — a squibber down the third base line by pinch-hitter Zach Walters with one out in…

  16. Terry Collins almost certain to be back in 2014

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Terry Collins

    Terry Collins is technically a lame duck as the Mets’ skipper. His contract runs out at the end of the month and, given his 213-246 record at the helm, it’s not as if there is a rich history of success in New York compelling the Mets to extend him.  Nevertheless, Buster Olney reports that extend…

  17. The Marlins will allow Jose Fernandez to make two more starts before shutdown

    Aug 31, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are planning to shut down rookie phenom Jose Fernandez after he makes his next two starts spanning 12 innings or fewer. The 20-year-old Fernandez was the tough-luck loser last night against the Braves, earning a loss despite allowing two runs over six innings of work while striking out…

  18. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 30, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Athletics 6: Torii Hunter walks off the Tigers who came back from a 6-1 deficit. A 6-3 deficit in the ninth. All while losing Miguel Cabrera mid-game. Now, starting pitching, please stop requiring Tigers bats to bail you out all the time. Orioles 3, Red Sox 2: Baltimore avoids the sweep and pulls…

  19. Roy Halladay cheered up Matt Harvey

    Aug 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    roy halladay long getty

    The biggest takeaway from this article is that it was awful cool of Roy Halladay to take the time to give Matt Harvey a pep talk about his recent injury. About having one of the greatest of his generation tell a kid not to worry, buck up and everything will be OK. That’s class, right…

  20. Matt Harvey to have tests in three weeks

    Aug 28, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    Many have wondered how long the Mets will stick with the “we’re rehabbing Matt Harvey” stance before ultimately deciding on surgery. I think the answer to that is “three weeks.”  Why? Because Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said today that Harvey will rest three weeks before undergoing more tests on his elbow. As many have noted,…

  21. The Long Sad History of Injured Pitchers

    Aug 28, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Matt Harvey

    There seems to be an impression out there that pitchers get hurt today more than they ever did before. It seems that every time a high profile pitcher gets hurt — the latest of these being Mets phenom Matt Harvey — that we get a rash of stories like this one from my friend Terry…

    Here’s a video that combines three of my all-time favorite things: Mid-1990s Boyz II Men, longing for Matt Harvey, and amusingly dumb stuff on the internet. (Complicated handshake to David Temple, who’s one of the leading “dumb things on the internet” creators.) Follow @AaronGleeman

    Aug 27, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    matt harvey getty

    Mets phenom Matt Harvey was diagnosed Monday morning with a partially-torn ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow. That injury almost always leads to Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery and it likely will in Harvey’s case, but the 24-year-old right-hander is opting to keep Mets fans optimistic with messages on his personal Twitter account. Here’s…

    When might we see Matt Harvey again? Could the Yankees take the wild card? And what can we make, if anything, from reports about a team’s finances?
