Harvey (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The embattled starter was examined by doctors after experiencing extreme arm fatigue, and after being diagnosed with a stress injury of the scapula bone in his right shoulder, he'll be sidelined for multiple weeks. Harvey was also sidelined for a number of weeks last season after being treated for thoracic outlet syndrome, so it wouldn't be too surprising to see the Mets take a cautious approach in his rehab process, especially given the injury situation plaguing New York at the moment. Matt Reynolds and Brandon Nimmo were recalled as corresponding moves for Harvey and Juan Lagares (thumb) landing on the DL, but look for Tyler Pill or Rafael Montero to fill the void in the Mets' rotation until Harvey is back in action.

Harvey was diagnosed with a stress injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is another tough break for Harvey, who has had past seasons derailed due to multiple different injuries; he's expected to be sidelined several weeks with this most recent ailment. The 28-year-old received a PRP injection Thursday and will wait until he is completely pain free before resuming a throwing program. The Mets were working with a six-man rotation recently, so it's possible they just go to a five-man rotation until Harvey returns.

Harvey said his arm felt tired and fatigued during his outing against the Cubs on Wednesday, David Lennon of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey was removed from Wednesday's game after tossing just 58 pitches, and this would explain why. "My arm was not working at all," the 28-year-old said after his outing, in which he allowed four runs on three homers in just four innings. His fastball velocity was also noticeably down, sitting in the high-80s and low-90s, which Harvey said was the slowest he's thrown since high school. He's scheduled to see a doctor Thursday, at which point more should be known about his condition.

Harvey did not allow a run over five innings of work Friday against the Braves, giving up four hits and two walks while striking out three.

EDGE Analysis

A high pitch count forced Harvey out of the game early, but he threw 68 of his 104 pitches for strikes. The Braves battled him early and often, though, an his inability to put hitters away early in the count cost him a longer outing. However, it was a nice bounce back effort from his previous start against Pittsburgh, when he allowed six runs over four innings.

Harvey (4-3) allowed one run on six hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

He threw 67 of 102 pitches for strikes, and while it wasn't the dominant Harvey of a few years ago it was still his first quality starts in his last six trips to the mound. The 28-year-old will try to build on that momentum in his next outing Friday at home in a rematch with Pittsburgh.

Harvey (3-3) held San Diego to two runs on three hits and four walks over five innings in Tuesday's win. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

While he did a decent job keeping the Padres off the board, this was hardly an improvement in terms of efficiency for Harvey, who needed 103 pitches to get through five frames. He's now walked four-plus batters in four consecutive starts, and Harvey hasn't finished six innings since April 21. While he looks to be settling down to some degree, Harvey still has a ways to go before he can be started without reservations in fantasy.

Harvey gave up three runs on six hits and four walks over 5.1 innings in Wednesday's extra-inning loss to Arizona. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

While this was an improvement over his prior three starts -- during which he went 0-3 while giving up 17 runs in 14.2 innings -- it's hard to paint it as a positive outing for Harvey. Sure, pitching in Arizona is no easy task, but more is expected of Harvey; after all, he's only 28 years old and was among baseball's best pitchers just two years ago. His velocity's still there, but his command and control are all over the place, which makes him hard to trust right now. With a 6.15 K/9 and 4.37 BB/9, Harvey has fallen way short of fantasy owners' expectations and should be deployed with caution accordingly.

Harvey (2-3) allowed five runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and five walks over five innings in Friday's 7-4 loss to the Brewers. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

He threw only 59 of 106 pitches for strikes, and the balls Harvey was getting over the plate weren't exactly fooling anyone. After a solid start to the season the right-hander's come completely unraveled, giving up at least five runs in each of his last three starts with a 9:13 K:BB in 14.2 innings. Things won't get any easier for Harvey in his next outing Wednesday on the road against the Diamondbacks.

Harvey was reinstated from the suspended list on Tuesday, and will start Friday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He was suspended for three games without pay for violating team rules over the weekend, but will still get a start this week in Milwaukee. While the Brewers' offense has a solid reputation, they actually rank 19th with a 91 wRC+ against right-handed pitching this season, so on paper it's not an awful matchup for Harvey. Josh Smoker was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas as a corresponding move.

Manager Terry Collins said that Harvey (suspension) will make his next start Friday against the Brewers, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Mets handed Harvey a three-game suspension Sunday for violating team rules, and although the club hasn't elaborated on the matter, it's believed that the right-hander arrived late for Saturday's game against the Marlins. He'll be eligible to rejoin the team for Wednesday's series finale against the Giants, but the Mets will presumably have him throw a side session that day before he takes the hill Friday. Adam Wilk, who made a spot start Sunday when Harvey wasn't available, is expected to move to the bullpen or get optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas once Harvey's suspension is over.
