Harvey didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Cubs, allowing four hits and a walk over six scoreless innings while striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander outdueled Cole Hamels and exited the game in line for his eighth win of the year, but the Reds bullpen promptly coughed up three runs in the seventh inning as soon as Harvey left the mound. He'll take a 4.67 ERA into his next start Wednesday in Milwaukee.

Harvey (7-8) picked up the win Saturday against the Padres, allowing two runs on four hits and three runs across six innings. He struck out a season-high 10 batters.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey was dialed in Saturday, tossing 67 of his 98 pitches for strikes and racking up double-digit strikeouts for the first time since May of 2016. The veteran right-hander has now registered back-to-back quality starts to begin September, posting a 3.75 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 13 strikeouts across 12 innings in those appearances. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Cubs.

Harvey (6-8) took the loss Monday against the Pirates, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out three across six innings.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey needed just 74 pitches (55 strikes) to get through six innings, but a pair of homers -- a solo shot from Adam Frazier in the first inning and a two-run homer from Gregory Polanco in the sixth -- spoiled his otherwise solid outing. He still salvaged what was his first quality start in three appearances, though he was stuck with the loss as Trevor Williams fired 6.2 scoreless opposite him. Harvey will carry a 4.95 ERA into his next start, which will come at home against the Padres.

Harvey didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 13-12 extra-inning loss to the Brewers, surrendering five runs on 11 hits over four-plus innings while striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

After giving up two runs in the first inning, Harvey seemed to settle down until the wheels completely came off in the fifth as the Brewers got to him for five straight hits -- including a Christian Yelich homer -- to chase him from the game. Fortunately for Harvey's final line, Sal Romano was able to escape the bases-loaded, no-out jam he inherited without allowing a run to score. Despite that bit of good luck, Harvey will still carry a 4.97 ERA into his next outing Monday in Pittsburgh.

Harvey allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out six over 5.1 innings as he didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey gave up just one run in the sixth inning before exiting with the ballgame tied 1-1. He tossed 49 of 83 pitches for strikes. The 29-year-old has looked sharp throughout his previous three outings, as he's tossed 18.2 frames and recorded 18 punchouts while allowing just three runs. Harvey will look to keep it rolling his next turn through the rotation, which is slated for Thursday against Milwaukee.

Harvey was not traded and remains the Reds' scheduled starter for Friday's game against the Cubs, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers put in a claim on Harvey but the two sides did not work out a trade within the allotted time frame. Harvey has been close to a league-average starter since joining Cincinnati (96 ERA+), but he's had five- and eight-run blowups recently and makes for a risky option against the first-place Cubs.

Harvey (6-7) picked up the win in Saturday's 7-1 victory over the Giants, allowing four hits and a walk over 6.1 scoreless innings while striking out five.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander took a no-hit bid into the sixth inning en route to his second straight quality start and first win since the All-Star break. Harvey will carry a 4.91 ERA into his next outing Friday on the road against the Cubs.

Harvey gave up two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings Saturday against the Phillies. He did not factor in the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Reports suggested that Harvey was in peak form, particularly in terms of velocity. His only mistake was a two-run homer he gave up to the red-hot Rhys Hoskins. There were scouts from roughly a dozen teams in attendance, so look for Harvey, who will be a free agent after this season, to be traded before his next start.

Harvey had his worst start as a member of the Reds on Sunday against the Pirates, giving up four homers as part of an eight-run outing over 3.2 innings. Harvey really struggled with his command, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports. "I tried to go in, and it'd go back over the plate. I tried to go away to a righty, and it was tailing down the middle," said Harvey. "The slider wasn't doing a whole lot, and that's what's been so successful the last couple of weeks, being able to locate the fastball and work the slider off the bat. It was a rough one, but I'll get back after it this week and get ready for my next one."

EDGE Analysis

Harvey is slated to get one more start before the July 31st trade deadline, pitching on Saturday at home against the Phillies. The Reds are going with a six-man rotation to accommodate the return of Homer Bailey from the DL, though Harvey's expected trade will presumably change that.

Harvey didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 8-7 loss to the Cubs, allowing three runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out four.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander got pulled one out from his fourth quality start of the season after throwing 93 pitches (60 strikes), but Harvey seems comfortably in line for his fourth straight win after entrusting the Reds bullpen with a 7-3 lead. While he's still not his dominant pre-injury self, the 29-year-old does have a 2.48 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 20:5 K:BB in 29 innings over his last five starts. He'll try to keep things rolling in his next outing Friday in St. Louis.
