7. Matt Harvey (SP-Mets)

  • 7-6, 3.11 ERA, 1.073 WHIP, 9.6 K/9

Suddenly, with the continuing emergence of Jacob deGrom and the hype surrounding sensation Steven Matz, Matt Harvey has remarkably taken a back seat in Mets fandom.

Obviously he hasn’t faded that far into oblivion that we forget about the Dark Knight, but his very human-like performances over the last two months has made Mets fans think the unthinkable.

Could Harvey end up not being the ace of this staff?

It’s surely possible. He’s demonstrated that there is an adjustment period as it pertains to getting over Tommy John surgery. Also, it’s become clear that his filthy 2013 and torrid beginning to 2015 are tough to duplicate every time he takes the mound.

Still though, he’s putting up outstanding numbers in what many consider a good, not great season.
