"When you have all things even and you're trying to make a tough decision, it comes down to the little things like controlling the running game, fielding your position", Callaway said.

Since a solid first start, Harvey has struggled, most recently when he allowed six earned runs in the first three innings Thursday night in Atlanta as the Braves beat NY 12-4. John Ricco, the Mets' assistant general manager, and Callaway made sure to emphasize that this move was more about getting Harvey on track than converting him to a full-time reliever.

Harvey is 34-37 in his career, and has started all but one of the 105 games he's played in with a career batting average against of.244 and an ERA of 3.60 over 633 1/3 innings. For the time being, though, it will be interesting to see how Callaway utilizes Harvey in his new role with the club.

Both teams have gotten off to better than expected starts this season.

Harvey will head to the bullpen, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The New York Mets are atop the National League East. Will we see the guy who looked good Monday and held the Phillies to one run over six innings or will we see the one that has given up 22 long balls in 107.2 innings in his outings at SunTrust Park since the Braves moved from Turner Field? On the heels of back-to-back losses, the Mets chose Harvey.

Trump's tweets 'created a stir' at Barbara Bush's funeral: NYT reporter
Barbara Bush earned her encomia for her work on literacy and her compassion, in an era that offered very little, towards gay Americans dying in the AIDS epidemic.

That doesn't mean Matt Harvey's demotion to the Mets' bullpen will produce a happy ending.

"I think he can help us", Callaway said to reporters.

Following Thursday night's 12-4 loss to the Braves, Callaway did not say whether Harvey will get another start, which is now scheduled for Wednesday night in St. Louis. In his 21.1 innings and 2-0 record this year, Syndergaard has a 2.95 ERA with 33 Ks and five BBs.

Looks like he's either going to have to change his mindset or else he's not going to have a place to pitch in NY for very much longer.

"He'll go back to attacking, he'll focus on winning each pitch, winning each at-bat and winning each inning", Eiland said.

Counting four starts this so far this year, Harvey has just nine wins in his last 40 appearances. Harvey has struggled in three of his four starts this season, though Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler are also options. Right now, they're both pitching out of the bullpen, and can be called on to start in a moment's notice. For now, though, he'll have to prove himself as a member of the Mets' bullpen.
