Mets have no plans to shut pitcher Matt Harvey down

MIAMI (AP) The New York Mets say they expect right-hander Matt Harvey to make four more starts during the regular season and assume a ”reasonable workload” during the playoffs.

Harvey missed last season recovering from Tommy John surgery, and his health came into question after he became dehydrated during his latest start Wednesday. He is 12-7 with a 2.60 ERA and has thrown 166 1-3 innings for the NL East leaders, and there are no plans to shut him down at any point, assistant general manager John Ricco said Friday.

Harvey underwent blood tests following his bout with dehydration and was cleared to make his next scheduled start Tuesday against Washington. He was en route to Miami on Friday night to join the Mets for their series against the Marlins.
