Matt Harvey Available Out of Bullpen for Game 5


According to Anthony DiComo of, Matt Harvey will be one of many weapons available out of the bullpen to back up Jacob deGrom on Thursday night in Los Angeles.

DeGrom, who pitched historically well in his last start, will have Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and everyone else (other than maybe Steve Matz) available for this winner-take-all Game 5, although we all hope he can hand the ball directly to Jeurys Familia.

I’m glad Harvey is going to be in the bullpen. I am tired of reading and writing about how much he can’t do. He’s made it this far, so if his arm is attached, he should be an option. Although Bartolo Colon has done a commendable job, the Mets need to have as many aces in their deck as they can.

Let’s hope we’re celebrating in Los Angeles tomorrow, but I believe.
