5 Under the Radar Pitchers Seattle Mariners Should Target
Yes, that Matt Harvey. At one point, a legitimate discussion could be held about who would have a better career: Matt Harvey or Noah Syndergaard? Oh where those happy days for Mets fans everywhere.
Unfortunately for the Mets, and Matt Harvey, his career has gone completely off the rails. After missing the entire 2014 season, Harvey returned and shocked baseball in 2015. In 29 starts, he threw 189 innings of 2.71 ERA baseball, averaging 8.94 K/9 and just 1.76 BB/9. The revival was quite short, however, and he suffered more injuries in 2016, and pitched horribly in 2017.
So why should the Mariners be interested? Upside. If Matt Harvey can return to 2015 form, the duo of Paxton and Harvey is as good as anybody west of Cleveland. With a potential low acquisition cost, Harvey is the type of dart throw that can turn the Mariners from fringe contender to dangerous playoff team.
