Tuesday, June 16
Matt Harvey (6-4, 3.62 ERA) vs. Scott Copeland (1-0, 0.90 ERA)
The Mets have seen the best of Matt Harvey – two consecutive scoreless outings in mid-May – and the worst of Matt Harvey – seven earned runs in two of his last four starts. Needless to say, Harvey is experiencing the post-Tommy John Surgery hangover, which is expected.
Many of the current Blue Jays have not faced Harvey, so hopefully he can have a successful outing with many fresh faces.
Scott Copeland made his first major league start last week against the Marlins and tossed seven shutout innings. He picked up the win and looked impressive in his start. Copeland has been in the Blue Jays farm system for six years and improved his numbers as he advanced through the minors.
