A new threat has emerged, and that name doesn’t rhyme with Sabathia, Strasburg, Verlander, or Price.
His name is Matt Harvey.
Harvey is  24-year-old pitcher who is currently 3-0 for the New York Mets, and already has posted a .82 ERA with a batting average against of just .088. In his first game, he took a no-hit bid into the 7th inning. The man carries a 95 mph fastball and a nasty slider that leaves batters confused at what just happened at the plate. And to solidify his pitching status as ‘He has arrived,’ Harvey will face off against the National’s Stephen Strasburg in what is being said as “pulse quickening as it gets for a matchup of 25-and-under starters that doesn’t include Clayton Kershaw” ESPN
The baseball industry along with Mets and Nationals fans will be buzzing Friday night under the lights in Citi Field. Two young guns will duel it out, and both teams are only split by 1.5 games this early in the season.
