Mets SP Matt Harvey Placed on Disabled List

In a season where everything seems to go wrong and a different starting pitcher seems to get injured every week, the trend continued this week. Matt Harvey landed on the disabled list Friday after tests diagnosed him with a stress reaction in his right shoulder.

The 28-year-old righty's season certainly hasn't gotten off to the best start this season. Across 70 innings pitch, Harvey owns a 5.25 ERA and 6.18 fielding independent pitching (FIP). It's been a downward season with serious command issues, demonstrated by his career-worst walk rate of 4.48, 2.05 HR/9 and career-low 6.91 K/9.

While it's not known when Harvey suffered the injury, he should be sidelined for several weeks. When Harvey should be in the prime of his career, he instead is turning in the worst marks across the board.

A starter hasn't yet been named that will take Harvey's spot in the rotation. But right now given the amount of hits New York's rotation already suffered, there likely won't be a fantasy appealing option.
