FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: METS LIKELY TO DL MATT HARVEY

After the latest meltdown from Matt Harvey on Thursday, the New York Mets are planning on placing their former ace on the 15-day DL in order to "clear his mind" according to a team source.  Harvey's fastball reached a new low Thursday when he struggled to throw it in the low-90's and with his ERA now up to a sky-high 5.77, manager Terry Collins hinted last night that his next start was not a given. 

Analysis:  Classic situation where Harvey is going to get time to get his stuff in order and freshen up as he looks gassed every time out which can be easily attributed to the 216 innings he tossed a year ago coming back from Tommy John surgery.  The Mets looked like the bumbled the whole innings thing with Harvey and could look at how the Nats shut down Stephen Strasburg in September despite being in a pennant race a few years back when he too came back from the surgery as the more correct way to go.  Either way anyone owning stock in Harvey have been hurt beyond repair right now.
