Reds-Harvey's New Home

Reds-Harvey's New Home

Get ready to see Matt Harvey in a new uniform. They then traded him to the Reds on Tuesday. Gamblers can also wager on the game's spread with the current runline odds standing at -125 for the Reds +1.5 runs and +105 for the Dodgers -1.5. It just needs to come out. He started the All-Star Game in his home stadium of Citi Field, finished fourth in National League Cy Young Award voting and along the way was hailed as "The Dark Knight", a moniker he embraced. He returned from Tommy John surgery in 2015 and helped the Mets reach their first World Series in 15 years. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. It was a split that seemed sealed last season but became a certainty when the 29-year-old Harvey went kicking and screaming to the bullpen when informed he was being removed from the starting rotation as a result of his bad performances this season. Overall, there was a lot of good times. It was a move I think the Mets had to make and I think Matt made a move he needed to make. So, I'd like to move forward with my new organization and do everything I can to help them. "Good memories. There's a lot of bad memories". I have a lot of good friends on that team and will for a long time. I obviously wasn't able to perform the way I wanted to and the way I was expecting to. "I'm looking forward to my opportunity".

Collins continued, "He was pitching so well, I just said, 'You know what, this is his time.' Unfortunately, it didn't work out".

"I had a lot of people say that that was the best thing", Harvey says about leaving NY. One can only hope that Harvey's body can still hold up to the task of once again becoming a capable, effective major league hurler. "You still have to get hitters out". The Reds have allowed 10 runs in their last three games and six or more runs in five of their last nine games.

The most recent former manager of the New York Mets, Terry Collins, who had a terrific relationship with Harvey throughout practically his entire development, had some heart-warming words to say to Dom Amore of The Hartford Courant.

Harvey is taking the rotation spot of a struggling Brandon Finnegan, who has been optioned to Triple-A Louisville.

From Kevin Kernan of the New York Post, a few Mets players chimed in after Harvey was designated for assignment. This will be Buehler's first career game against the Reds.
