Mets Notes: Matt Harvey catches early flight home
Matt Harvey was sent back to New York before Thursday's series finale against the Colorado Rockies, to ensure the right-hander has the proper rest heading into Friday's start against Stephen Strasburg and the Washington Nationals.
"I don't think there's any question Matt gets up for it," Terry Collins said about Harvey facing Strasburg. "He loves the big stage, and that's what he's on. He's got a big challenge tomorrow. If you look at some of the games that he's had to pitch, they've been against some pretty impressive guys. And he's getting another one tomorrow."
