Typically whenever Matt Harvey was to come around in the rotation, the Mets were expected to win.
That hasn’t been the case this season, as Harvey looks to rebound from 3 bad starts when he opposes Bud Norris on Friday night.
The Mets offense has had zero problems this season. They have put up 5 runs per road game and have really picked up the production from a slow start.
What wasn’t expected was their pitching to be the biggest problem. The Mets pitching staff is expected to be one of the best in baseball, but for that to be true RH Matt Harvey will need to figure himself out.
Harvey has gone 0-3 with an ERA of 5.71 and all his numbers are down. He’s struck out just 9 hitters in 17.1 innings of work. His stuff just hasn’t been there as he isn’t producing the swings and misses he got last season and is struggling with his location. A lot of his pitches stay up in the zone and there has been that one implosion inning from him in all three starts.
Harvey is 1-2 with a 2.75 ERA in three career starts against the Braves.
The Braves put together a 4 game winning streak after being one of the last teams to secure a win in the MLB. However, they’re once again trending in the wrong direction, losers of 2 straight, both of which in extra innings.
Defense has been the biggest flaw for Atlanta. The Braves have committed 3 errors in the loss to Los Angeles on Thursday which now puts them at 14 over their first 15 games.
The Braves will send out LH Bud Norris, who has struggled this season. Norris brings in a record of 1-2 with an ERA of 6.23. Norris brings in a 1-2 career record against the Mets.
Atlanta is just 1-7 SU at home this season.
