"I'm kind of leaking my front side open a little too early, allowing hitters to see the ball a brief second faster than they should", he said.
"The Dark Knight" has turned into "The Dark Good Night". With plenty of suitors, the Mariners and Reds are rumored to have interest along with the Giants; the Mets will likely be able to trade Harvey instead of outright releasing him. It was mop-up duty for the unsightly mess created by Jason Vargas, and Harvey actually pitched worse, left out there to absorb five more runs of punishment by the Braves. He ascended rapidly through the minor leagues, making his big league debut in 2012 at age 23. After being moved to the bullpen, Harvey expressed his displeasure and is time with the Mets was running out.
Harvey is eligible for free agency at the end of this season. He went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA, a 0.93 WHIP and a 9.6 K/9. His 2.71 ERA ranked sixth in the National League.
Harvey was demoted to the bullpen last month after three straight poor starts. Harvey was out in Manhattan the night before. He had a 6.00 earned run average at the time.
Meanwhille, I haven't even started to rant about how the Mets offense seems to be lost. I just wish him the best, I really do.
Zack Wheeler would be a good swap for Lugo.
The Dodgers have some solid internal options for their rotation if Walker Buehler is going to be limited by innings. The man still has immense talent and just turned 29.
Texas assistant pitching coach Dan Warthen is encouraging his front office to consider Harvey. However, this one is on him. Alderson told reporters that he was not surprised. That netted him a three-day suspension. In 2016, Lugo posted a record of 5-2 and an ERA of 2.67 in 64 IP. I don't know of many guys in his shoes who would have accepted it. I feel like he thinks he can have a chance somewhere else to kind of get a fresh start and a clean slate, and he's probably looking forward to that.

Right now, the Giants are without both Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto. A no-pressure situation with the Detroit Tigers could help ease his nerves as well.
