Matt Harvey: I will pitch in the playoffs
Sunday September 6th, 2015

In an essay for The Players’ Tribune, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey said he will pitch in the playoffs.

Harvey said Saturday he considered 180 innings to be his limit for the regular season. He's pitched 166 1/3 innings in 25 starts so far this season.

On The Players’ Tribune, Harvey said the despite the limit, he always planned on pitching in the postseason.

“But there has never been a doubt in my mind: I will pitch in the playoffs. I will be healthy, active and ready to go,” Harvey said. “I am communicating with my agent, my doctor, [GM] Sandy [Alderson] and the entire Mets organization. I can assure everyone that we’re all on the same page. Together, we are coming up with a plan to reach an innings limit during the season. It will be a compromise between the doctors and the Mets organization to get me, and the team, to where we need to be for our postseason run.”
