Analysis: Harvey (5-3) gave up four runs in eight innings and struck out 11, but fell to 0-3 in his last five outings, a string that includes two games in which he pitched shutout ball before leaving in the late innings. The All-Star ace was coming off the worst start of his career, getting tagged for seven runs in four innings at Pittsburgh. After the game, the Mets said they worried the right-hander - coming back from Tommy John surgery this year - was having "dead arm" issues.

Apr. 22 6:45 PM PT7:45 PM MT8:45 PM CT9:45 PM ET21:45 ET1:45 GMT9:45 6:45 PM MST8:45 PM EST9:15 PM VEN5:45 UAE (+1)8:45 PM CT-Harvey has a mild left ankle sprain but the team says he will make his next scheduled start Saturday at Yankee Stadium.
Analysis: Harvey left the clubhouse Wednesday afternoon to have his foot examined by a doctor. New York manager Terry Collins told reporters it's a minor issue that Harvey has been pitching through for about a month. The right-hander is 3-0 with a 3.50 ERA in three starts this year since returning from Tommy John surgery that sidelined him last season. He gave up a season-high four runs and eight hits Sunday in a win over Miami, saying afterward he felt ill and got tired.
Apr. 15 1:43 PM PT2:43 PM MT3:43 PM CT4:43 PM ET16:43 ET20:43 GMT4:43 1:43 PM MST3:43 PM EST4:13 PM VEN0:43 UAE (+1)3:43 PM CT-Harvey gave up three runs and struck out eight in six innings of Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.

Analysis: Harvey could be in for another dominant performance in his next scheduled start Tuesday against offensively challenged Philadelphia.
Mar. 23 2:53 PM PT3:53 PM MT4:53 PM CT5:53 PM ET17:53 ET21:53 GMT5:53 2:53 PM MST4:53 PM EST5:23 PM VEN1:53 UAE (+1)3:53 PM CT-Bartolo Colon, not Matt Harvey, has been picked to start the New York Mets' opener at Washington on April 6.
Analysis: Harvey is returning from elbow ligament-replacement surgery that has sidelined him since August 2013. He is scheduled to start the third game of the opening series at the Nationals and the second home game - which likely will draw far more fans to Citi Field with Harvey on the mound that it otherwise would.
