The Mets had a load of fun pummeling the Phillies last night, but there was at least some cause for concern as starter Matt Harvey left the game with a tight hamstring.

He was likely leaving soon anyway, having tossed 92 pitches in five and two-thirds, but he left a tad early after tweaking something while covering first base.

After the game Terry Collins said that Harvey felt fine and he is not expected to miss a start. Still, with Harvey’s injury history, anything less than 100% out of him will at least make you raise an eyebrow. Or furrow one. I dunno, you should probably do something with your eyebrow. Your choice.

Harvey has made two¬†starts on the season. So far he’s 2-0 and has given up four earned runs in 12.1 innings while striking out 10 and walking only one.
