Matt Harvey to focus on improving bullpen preparation

Matt Harvey, after admitting to be ticked off about his demotion to the New York Mets' bullpen, seems to have moved past his initial anger.

Harvey wants to contribute and if it's as a reliever, so be it. (MLB.com)

Let’s Remember The Good Matt Harvey

Injuries have really derailed the promising career of Matt Harvey. The guy who took New York by the horn in 2013 and harnessed it. The guy who made Mets fans see the light at the end of the tunnel in 2013. The one who got the Mets to contention in 2015. The guy who almost put himself in the history books in the 2015 World Series. (Mets Merized Online)

"He's a great example for our other young pitchers to watch," Mike Fox said. "He'll give up a double, and then he'll come back and make a great pitch.
