New York Mets ace Matt Harvey is coming off one of the worst starts of his career in which he lasted just 4 innings giving up 7 runs on 6 hits. Mets manager Terry Collins thinks that Harvey may have a case of ‘dead arm’ which is normal for players coming off of Tommy John surgery like Harvey.
“[Matt Harvey is] going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens,” Collins said.
After the start, Harvey told reports that his body and his arm were doing just fine.
“My arm feels fine, my body feels fine.”
Despite the horrid start, Harvey is still one of the best pitchers in baseball and the National League this season, with a 5-2 record, a 2.91 earned run average, and 60 strikeouts along with 10 walks in 58.2 innings of work so far this season.
