Harvey could be dealing with a case of "dead arm" according to manager Terry Collins, Sports Illustrated reports.

Harvey endured one of the poorest starts of his career last Saturday, allowing seven earned runs over just four innings, including two walks and two wild pitches. It now appears fatigue may have came into play, as manager Terry Collins noted "It looks like he might be going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens." Fortunately for Harvey and the Mets, a built-in day off is on the schedule Thursday, allowing Harvey a fifth day of rest before taking the mound Friday against the Marlins. Several Mets writers, including Adam Rubin of ESPN New York believe that the issue isn't serious, and this is merely a minor road bump in a long season. However, if the issue resurfaces, Collins may be forced to find the occasional extra day of rest for his ace. One strategy being used will be to deploy a six-man starting rotation, beginning when Dillon Gee (groin) is activated in early-June.

Harvey will make his next start Friday against the Marlins, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Harvey will make his next turn on five days of rest, as Dillon Gee (groin) won't be activated from the disabled list until early-June. Once that happens, the Mets will shift to a six-man rotation, so two-start weeks will be limited for Harvey for the foreseeable future.

Harvey got hammered for seven runs on six hits, including two home runs, and two walks over four innings on Saturday, striking out four.

After five straight quality starts, Harvey may have been due for a stinker, but he still has an impressive 2.91 ERA and 60:10 K:BB ratio through 58.2 innings on the season. With the Mets shifting to a six-man rotation when Dillon Gee (groin) comes off the DL, Harvey's next start will come next Saturday, at home to the Marlins.

Harvey was dominant in a no-decision Monday, shutting out the Cardinals for eight innings while striking out nine.

Harvey has been a machine this season, tossing five straight quality starts and failing to allow a run in three of his last four starts. Harvey will look to continue his dominance when he takes the mound against the Pirates this weekend.

Harvey pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out nine while giving up only three hits and two walks in a no-decision against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Harvey (5-1) pitched well enough to win, but reliever Carlos Torres couldn't close the deal. Torres gave up a run in the eighth then back-to-back hits to Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro to start the ninth inning before intentionally walking Miguel Montero. Closer Jeurys Familia replaced Torres and struck out Jorge Soler but walked Chris Coghlan to give the Cubs the win. Harvey will have his next scheduled start Monday against St. Louis.

Harvey allowed three runs on six hits, walking one and striking out four over six innings of a 3-1 loss to Philadelphia on Friday night.

The loss was Harvey's first of the season as he dropped to 5-1 with a still impressive 2.72 ERA. The Mets will continue to monitor his workload (he threw just 86 pitches in this one, 58 for strikes), but he appears to be on his game after missing last season following Tommy John surgery, and is clearly a threat to dominate on any given night.

Harvey tossed seven innings of shutout baseball, allowing five hits, walking one and striking out three as the Mets down Washington 4-0 Friday night.

Now 5-0 with a sparkling 2.41 ERA, Harvey and Max Scherzer hooked up in a classic pitcher's duel. A fourth inning home run by Michael Cuddyer proved to be the difference, although the Mets did add on three runs in the eighth inning to salt the game away. After missing 2014 while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, Harvey has quickly jumped into the early 2015 Cy Young discussions.

After he gave up a hit and a walk with two outs in the ninth, Mets manager Terry Collins called in Carlos Torres to finish things off. Harvey now sports an impressive 3.04 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 31:3 K:BB ratio in 26.2 innings.

Harvey will not face any restrictions due to his mild left ankle sprain in his start against the Yankees on Saturday, Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports.

Harvey was officially diagnosed with the ankle sprain just this week, but he first came down with the injury in spring training and it didn't seem to inhibit him in his first three regular-season starts (3-0, 24:1 K:BB). The 26-year-old has thrown between 84-95 pitches in his three outings and should be fine for a similar workload Saturday.

Harvey (ankle) will make his scheduled start Saturday against the Yankees, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

The minor ankle sprain shouldn't be an issue for Harvey as the Mets look to take Game 2 of the Subway Series on Saturday.
