Matt Harvey did admit his pitching hasn't been good, and said on Saturday he's determined to earn his way back into the rotation. "And that's as a starting pitcher".

Meet Matt Harvey, the New York Mets new relief pitcher. At a time when the Mets are attempting to decipher who belongs and who doesn't in their rotation, their erstwhile ace is giving them little reason to recommend him. The biggest thing surrounding the Mets right now is the controversy around the statement that manager Mickey Callaway made about Harvey not being guaranteed his next start. For the time being, though, it will be interesting to see how Callaway utilizes Harvey in his new role with the club.

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

Wisler was summoned from the minors because Atlanta's scheduled starter, Anibal Sanchez, was placed on the 10-day disabled list after straining his right hamstring while running in the outfield before Wednesday night's game against Philadelphia. The move wasn't entirely out of the blue, as Callaway said his spot would be reassessed after he allowed six runs in six innings in a loss to the Braves on Saturday.

The handling of Harvey was one of Callaway's first major tests as the Mets' manager.

"That last three innings I think I was able to break through that mental block I was feeling every time I went out there", Harvey said.

An All-Star back in 2013, Harvey simply has not been the same since missing the entire 2014 campaign with a UCL tear. And yes, it's unsafe to read too much into just a few starts in April. The Mets led, 3-0, after a strong start by Jacob deGrom, who struck out 10 and allowed just four hits over seven innings.

The Mets do have options in the rotation if they don't want to go back to Harvey, most notably Jason Vargas. The New York Mets have chose to take the former starting pitcher, who has been struggling on the mound, and add him to the bullpen rotation.

Callaway said he thought Harvey would be motivated to prove he's a starting pitcher.

"He'll go back to attacking, he'll focus on winning each pitch, winning each at-bat and winning each inning", Eiland said. And, with the Mets no longer being in the business of only development and rebuilding, they need to field the best, most effective players possible. Even if he can not return to the level he was at in 2013, him proving himself in the bullpen, working his way back into a starting role, and producing quality outings will give the Mets a huge boost to their pitching staff.
