Don’t really have much to add to the headline. Carlos Torres will start Saturday. Here’s hoping Harvey doesn’t get pressured to pitch Tuesday in the All Star Game, despite the blister. He probably will, though.
I don’t care if he skips a start. The problem will be if he’s asked to pitch Tuesday, to the detriment of getting himself healthy. It’s a blister, which hopefully limits the risk. But at the same time, it’s added risk with the franchise’s most valuable player, for the sake of an exhibition game. That’s very short-sighted, and very Mets.
Get well soon, Matt Harvey. Your eye-popping first half wasn’t because of the color of your shirt.
