Sep. 19 8:26 AM PT9:26 AM MT10:26 AM CT11:26 AM ET11:26 ET15:26 GMT23:26 8:26 AM MST10:26 AM EST10:56 AM VEN19:26 UAE10:26 AM CT-Matt Harvey fell to 5-6, allowing seven runs on 12 hits and two walks in 4.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Miami Marlins 13-1 on Monday. Harvey struck out two, ending the game with a 6.59 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: In four starts since returning from a right shoulder injury that sidelined him for 2 1/2 months, the right-hander has an ERA of 13.19 while allowing 32 hits in 14.1 innings. Manager Terry Collins said the biggest problem is that Harvey's slider has been ineffective. He next takes the ball Sunday against the Nationals.

Harvey struck out three, ending the game with a 5.97 ERA and 1.52 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey, who was making his first start since June 14 after being sidelined with a stress injury to the scapula bone in his shoulder, next takes the ball Thursday against the Reds.
June 15 12:56 PM PT1:56 PM MT2:56 PM CT3:56 PM ET15:56 ET19:56 GMT3:56 12:56 PM MST2:56 PM EST3:26 PM VEN23:56 UAE2:56 PM CT-Harvey is scheduled to make his first start in more than two months in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader with the Astros in Houston.
Analysis: Harvey has been out since mid-June with a stress injury to his scapula. He has had mixed results in four minor league rehab outings, but the Mets liked what they saw in his performance on Saturday with Double-A Binghamton against Portland. Harvey allowed five runs, three earned, in 4 2/3 innings.
June 15 9:50 AM PT10:50 AM MT11:50 AM CT12:50 PM ET12:50 ET16:50 GMT0:50 9:50 AM MST11:50 AM EST12:20 PM VEN20:50 UAE11:50 AM CT-Matt Harvey allowed four runs on four hits and one walk in 4.0 innings as the New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs 9-4 on Wednesday. Harvey struck out five, ending the game with a 5.25 ERA and 1.45 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey lost the zip on his fastball and gave up three homers in four innings. After the game, the former ace said he's at a pretty low point physically and plans to see a doctor. 'My arm was just not working at all,'' said Harvey, who had a rib removed last year during surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome. ''I think the last time I threw 87 (mph) with a fastball was probably freshman year of high school.''
June 15 10:15 PM PT11:15 PM MT12:15 AM CT1:15 AM ET1:15 ET5:15 GMT13:15 10:15 PM MST12:15 AM EST12:45 AM VEN9:15 UAE12:15 AM CT-Harvey was pulled after four innings of Wednesday's start against the Cubs after complaining of a tired arm. The struggling right-hander allowed four runs on four hits and struck out five in the Mets' 9-4 win.
Analysis: Harvey's fastball velocity dipped into the high 80s and he gave up three homers in his latest frustrating outing. "My arm was just not working at all," he said. "I think the last time I threw 87 (mph) with a fastball was probably freshman year of high school." The 2013 All-Star is scheduled to see a doctor on Thursday. Harvey, who made just 17 starts in 2016 and underwent thoracic outlet surgery last July, owns a troubling 6.60 ERA over his last nine starts.
June 9 8:53 PM PT9:53 PM MT10:53 PM CT11:53 PM ET23:53 ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST11:23 PM VEN7:53 UAE (+1)10:53 PM CT-Harvey allowed four hits and two walks without giving up a run in 5.0 innings as the New York Mets lost to the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Friday.

Harvey struck out five, ending the game with a 5.43 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: After three solid starts, Harvey allowed five runs or more for the fourth time in his last seven outings. He's walked 19 over 26 1/3 innings in his past five starts.
May 29 8:10 AM PT9:10 AM MT10:10 AM CT11:10 AM ET11:10 ET15:10 GMT23:10 8:10 AM MST10:10 AM EST10:40 AM VEN19:10 UAE10:10 AM CT-Matt Harvey improved to 4-3, allowing one run on six hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-2 on Sunday. Harvey struck out four, ending the game with a 4.95 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This was Harvey's best start in a while. He had a 7.92 ERA in his previous five starts with more walks (21) than strikeouts (20).
May 24 9:03 PM PT10:03 PM MT11:03 PM CT12:03 AM ET0:03 ET4:03 GMT12:03 9:03 PM MST11:03 PM EST11:33 PM VEN8:03 UAE11:03 PM CT-Matt Harvey improved to 3-3, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets defeated the San Diego Padres 9-3 on Tuesday. Harvey struck out six, ending the game with a 5.36 ERA and 1.47 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: In his first home start since his suspension, Harvey earned his first win since April 11 at Philadelphia. The embattled former ace was 0-3 in his previous six starts and got banned three days by the Mets after skipping a home game this month following a late night on the town. He next takes the ball Sunday at Pittsburgh.
May 17 5:17 PM PT6:17 PM MT7:17 PM CT8:17 PM ET20:17 ET0:17 GMT8:17 5:17 PM MST7:17 PM EST7:47 PM VEN4:17 UAE (+1)7:17 PM CT-Matt Harvey allowed three runs on six hits and four walks in 5.1 innings as the New York Mets lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-4 on Wednesday. Harvey struck out five, ending the game with a 5.56 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey was better than his last start, his first following a team-imposed suspension, but he's 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA in his last four starts. He's walked 17 and struck out just 14 over 20 innings in that span. The Dark Knight is more like the Joker right now.
May 12 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET23:37 ET3:37 GMT11:37 8:37 PM MST10:37 PM EST11:07 PM VEN7:37 UAE (+1)10:37 PM CT-Matt Harvey fell to 2-3, allowing five runs on seven hits and five walks in 5.0 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 on Friday. Harvey struck out six, ending the game with a 5.63 ERA and 1.43 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey wasn't sharp in his first start in 10 days after he was suspended three days without pay for a violation of team rules. He is 0-3 with a 10.43 ERA in his last three starts, allowing 20 hits and 13 walks in 14 2/3 innings.
May 7 8:46 AM PT9:46 AM MT10:46 AM CT11:46 AM ET11:46 ET15:46 GMT23:46 8:46 AM MST10:46 AM EST11:16 AM VEN19:46 UAE10:46 AM CT-A contrite Harvey rejoined the Mets on Tuesday and apologized to his teammates after serving a three-day suspension for skipping a game last weekend. Harvey also apologized to fans who attended Sunday's game expecting to see him pitch against Miami. Instead, he was sent home for not showing up to the ballpark for a game the night before. Harvey said he went out Friday night, played golf Saturday morning and did not show up for Saturday night's game.
Analysis: After missing a turn in the rotation, the right-hander is slated to make his next start at Milwaukee on Friday. Harvey went 2-0 with a 2.84 in his first four outings before dropping his last two while allowing 12 runs, 13 hits and eight walks with just three strikeouts over 9 2/3 innings.
May 2 8:57 PM PT9:57 PM MT10:57 PM CT11:57 PM ET23:57 ET3:57 GMT11:57 8:57 PM MST10:57 PM EST11:27 PM VEN7:57 UAE (+1)10:57 PM CT-Matt Harvey fell to 2-2, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks in 5.1 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Atlanta Braves 9-7 on Tuesday. Harvey struck out two, ending the game with a 5.14 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey has now yielded six runs in each of his last two starts while walking eight over 9 2/3 innings. He faces the Marlins on Sunday, and in Miami on April 16, he allowed two runs - one earned and seven hits over six innings. However, he has a 6.62 ERA in his last three starts against the Marlins in New York.
Apr. 27 2:50 PM PT3:50 PM MT4:50 PM CT5:50 PM ET17:50 ET21:50 GMT5:50 2:50 PM MST4:50 PM EST5:20 PM VEN1:50 UAE (+1)4:50 PM CT-Matt Harvey fell to 2-1, allowing six runs on five hits and five walks in 4.1 innings, as the New York Mets lost to the Atlanta Braves 7-5 on Thursday. Harvey struck out one, ending the game with a 4.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Harvey went 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in his first four outings.
Apr. 22 9:02 AM PT10:02 AM MT11:02 AM CT12:02 PM ET12:02 ET16:02 GMT0:02 9:02 AM MST11:02 AM EST11:32 AM VEN20:02 UAE11:02 AM CT-Harvey gave up three runs and four hits - two homers - over seven innings in the Mets' 4-3, 11-inning loss to the Nationals on Friday.
Analysis: Harvey has been really good so far with a 0.95 WHIP, but the long ball - five homers in 25 1/3 innings - is a bit of a concern.
Apr. 21 2:47 PM PT3:47 PM MT4:47 PM CT5:47 PM ET17:47 ET21:47 GMT5:47 2:47 PM MST4:47 PM EST5:17 PM VEN1:47 UAE (+1)4:47 PM CT-Harvey has been moved up a day to start in place of Jacob deGrom (stiff neck) on regular rest as the Mets host the Nationals on Friday.
Analysis: Harvey is 2-0 with a 2.45 ERA in three starts this season. The right-hander is 0-5 with a 5.30 ERA in his last seven starts against Washington.
Apr. 16 2:19 PM PT3:19 PM MT4:19 PM CT5:19 PM ET17:19 ET21:19 GMT5:19 2:19 PM MST4:19 PM EST4:49 PM VEN1:19 UAE (+1)4:19 PM CT-Harvey gave up two runs - one earned - over six innings before the Mets' 4-2 walk-off loss to the Marlins on Sunday.
Analysis: Harvey didn't allow a homer for the first time in three starts, and lowered his ERA to 2.45.
Apr. 11 6:48 PM PT7:48 PM MT8:48 PM CT9:48 PM ET21:48 ET1:48 GMT9:48 6:48 PM MST8:48 PM EST9:18 PM VEN5:48 UAE (+1)8:48 PM CT-Harvey (hamstring) is expected to make Sunday's scheduled start at Miami.
Analysis: Harvey's availability had been somewhat in question after he exited Tuesday's outing at Philadelphia in the sixth inning due to tightness in his left hamstring, though his departure appeared to be precautionary. The hard-throwing right-hander, who missed most of last season recovering from thoracic outlet surgery, has posted a 2.92 ERA in winning his first two starts of 2017.
Apr. 7 8:15 AM PT9:15 AM MT10:15 AM CT11:15 AM ET11:15 ET15:15 GMT23:15 8:15 AM MST10:15 AM EST10:45 AM VEN19:15 UAE10:15 AM CT-Harvey allowed three hits and two runs without a walk in 6 2/3 innings as the Mets beat the Braves 6-2 on Thursday.
Analysis: Harvey won for the first time since May 30. In his previous appearance on July 4, he was chased by Miami in the fourth inning. Harvey was 0-4 with a 5.89 ERA in five spring training starts. The 28-year-old right-hander's fastball was consistently in the 93-94 mph range - even reaching 96 mph - and he needed six pitches to get through the first inning, eight in the second, 10 in the third and 11 in the fourth.
Mar. 10 3:37 PM PT4:37 PM MT5:37 PM CT6:37 PM ET18:37 ET23:37 GMT7:37 4:37 PM MST6:37 PM EST7:07 PM VEN3:37 UAE (+1)5:37 PM CT-Harvey gave up one run - a long homer by Houston's Reid Brignac - and two hits in three innings Friday.
Analysis: Harvey's season ended last July due to thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, which resulted in the removal of a rib. ''We've got to get Matt to pitch. The velocity will come,'' Mets manager Terry Collins said, adding Harvey's speed was slightly up. ''At the velocity he's even at now, that's going to be fine if he locates it.''
Mar. 5 2:35 PM PT3:35 PM MT4:35 PM CT5:35 PM ET17:35 ET22:35 GMT6:35 3:35 PM MST5:35 PM EST6:05 PM VEN2:35 UAE (+1)4:35 PM CT-Harvey struggled Sunday in his first game action in eight months after shoulder surgery last summer, allowing four runs in 1 1/3 innings against the Cardinals.
Analysis: Even though he struggled with his fastball command and decreased velocity, Harvey was pleased. "Today was kind of the first step getting my feet wet in game action and I felt it went pretty well," said Harvey, who struck out three and threw 39 pitches with his fastball topping out at 94 mph.
