Harvey (2-3) picked up the win Wednesday against the Phillies. He tossed six innings, allowing two runs, seven hits and one walk while striking out seven.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvey won his second consecutive start after losing his first three. He overcame a first-inning home run by Zack Cozart and went on to strike out a season-high seven hitters. Mixing a changeup with a fastball that reached 97 mph, Harvey looked better than he has in a while. The right-hander will look to even his record when he takes the hill Tuesday against the Braves.

Harvey gave up two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings, which was enough for him to pick up his first win of the season Friday against the Braves.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Unfortunately, Harvey still wasn't the dominant ace that his owners have been waiting to see, as his pitch count got up to 101 in just five innings, putting an end to his night. It's a step in the right direction, but there should be many better days yet ahead for Harvey and his owners. He is set for another very favorable matchup in his next start Wednesday at home against the Reds.

Harvey (0-3) continued to struggle in his third outing, as he allowed five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four in a loss to the Indians on Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He was perfect through four, but a walk with one out in the fifth came around to score and then the floodgates opened for Cleveland. Eight of the last 11 batters Harvey faced reached base. The Mets ace doesn't look like himself early this season, but there's no indication anything is wrong health-wise and at least he did look sharp in the early going Saturday. Harvey will hope to turn things around in his next start Friday against Atlanta.

Harvey (0-2) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Phillies, striking out three.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The big blow was a two-run homer by Odubel Herrera. Harvey hasn't quite looked like a pitcher everyone expected to challenge for a Cy Young this season, posting a 4.63 ERA and weak 5:4 K:BB through two starts (11.2 innings), but there's no indication that anything is wrong with him health-wise. Harvey will look to turn things around in his next start Saturday in Cleveland.

Harvey (blood clots) was touched up for four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks across 5.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals. He struck out two.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvey repeatedly allowed men to reach base, and he was scored upon in three different innings as he ran into trouble. The fact that he was able to start was encouraging after dealing with blood clots last week, but there's a chance he was at less than 100 percent. Due to the three upcoming off days this week, Harvey could have as much as eight days of rest before his next outing, which would be Apr. 11 versus the Marlins.

Harvey (blood clots) will make his scheduled start in Sunday's season opener against the Royals, Newsday reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

By all accounts, Harvey has been fine since passing a clot from his bladder early in the week. As a result, he shouldn't have any restrictions Sunday in a matchup between the 2015 World Series clubs.

Harvey (blood clots) said he will be fine to make his Opening Day start against the Royals, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvey passed the blood clots in his bladder, so while he's been scratched from Tuesday's spring game, he should still be ready for Opening Day. He'll throw a few innings Wednesday to prepare for his first start, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Harvey has been diagnosed with blood clots in his bladder, MLB.com's Anthony DiComo reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Although it sounds bad, Harvey's condition isn't thought to be serious. However, he has been scratched from Tuesday's spring game, with manager Terry Collins saying that the right-hander's Opening Day availability is now in question. The Mets will likely provide more details Tuesday or Wednesday.

Harvey missed Monday's game with an unspecified medical issue, the New York Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The issue seems to be fairly minor, as he is reportedly still expected to make his scheduled start Tuesday against the Marlins. Things should become clearer once he returns to camp, but as it stands now, Harvey's Opening Day status doesn't appear to be in jeopardy.

Harvey, who allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks in just three innings Thursday, said after the game that, "everything was a little out of whack mechanically," the NY Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Harvey struggled with his command and control while also posting lower than usual velocity on his fastball. This was the second straight outing Harvey struggled, as he had difficulties in the final inning of his start against St. Louis' Triple-A team. Harvey has one more outing, during which he will make 100 pitches, to try and figure it out before starting on Opening Night, April 3, against the Royals.
