Mets Trade Matt Harvey To Reds

Published

on

The New York Mets have traded RHP Matt Harvey to the Cincinnati Reds for C Devin Mesoraco and cash. Because the two teams are playing a series against each other, Mesoraco will walk across the field and join the Mets dugout tonight.

Harvey, 29, was designated for assignment by the Mets last week after refusing to go to the Minor Leagues. In 8 games (4 starts) in 2018, Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA. He has given up 21 runs and 33 hits in 27 innings.

Harvey finished 4th in NL Cy Young voting in 2013, going 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA.

After undergoing Tommy John Surgery and missing the 2014 season, Harvey came back with a vengeance in 2015, going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA. In 3 Postseason starts, Harvey is 2-0 with a 3.04 ERA.

Harvey’s career has gone into a tailspin after that season. In 2016, he went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and in 2017 he went 5-7 with a 6.70 ERA. He has dealt with nagging injuries and various DL stints. His poor performance, as well as his temper, has caused many New York fans to grow tired of him.

Harvey will join the Reds later in the week in Los Angeles.

Mesoraco has spent his entire career in Cincinnati, with 2018 being his 8th year in the show. After playing just 72 games in his first two seasons, Mesoraco played 103 games in 2013.

2014 was Mesoraco’s breakout year. He hit .273 with 25 home runs and 80 RBIs. He was named to the NL All Star team that season.

Since that year, however, Mesoraco has dealt with numerous injuries, playing in just 113 games over the past 4 seasons. Because of this and the play of Tucker Barnhart, Mesoraco has served as the backup catcher for the past season.

Both players were in need of a change of scenery, and both fan bases hope they are getting the players from a few years ago.

Yankees, Reds Finalizing Sonny Gray Trade

The Cincinnati Reds are finalizing a trade with the New York Yankees for veteran starting pitcher Sonny Gray.

The trade, which would send second base prospect Shed Long and a draft pick to New York, has hit a delay as the Reds try to work out a long-term deal with Gray.

As the trade drags on, it is possible that the Yankees could run out of patience and deal Gray elsewhere.

According to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, the Yankees had received multiple offers from teams for Gray as of last Friday, so if the deal with the Reds fall through, they have other options.
