Matt Harvey used to be one of the most dominant and top pitchers in the league, but in recent years, he has struggled and hasn't been able to return to his elite shape and the Mets demoted him to the bullpen, as he is no longer a reliable starting pitcher.

 

However, former All-Star and Mets pitcher, Bob Ojeda, thinks that he knows what are Harvey's issues nature and how to fix them, as he spoke to Mike Puma of the New York Post about this:

His stuff has changed. It's not what it was, and I still 100 percent believe he doesn't know how to pitch.It's not, 'I throw 30 percent changeups, I throw 85 percent fastballs, I throw 12 1/2 percent knuckleballs.' No. Pitching is feel. Now he's going to go out there presumably twice a week, maybe more, and going to have to learn on the fly how to get people out

 

Harvey has struggled in recent seasons, but in the 2018 campaign he has suffered on the mound, as in 4 starts, he has a 0-2 record with a 6.00 ERA and 17 strikeouts over 21 innings pitchers.
