Only two weeks ago, Mets GM Sandy Alderson publicly announced that Matt Harvey might not make his 2015 debut until the Mets’ home opener on April 13 — a full week after Opening Day.
Yet today, when the question was asked of Mets manager Terry Collins, Collins made abundantly clear that Harvey would be pitching before then.
Per Adam Rubin of ESPN:
“He’s going to be in those first five guys, I’ll tell you that,” Collins said Saturday.
Asked if that meant Harvey would pitch one of the first five games of the season, Collins replied: “Yes.”
Hmm … so, who’s in charge? Alderson or Collins? Or Harvey?
