Matt Harvey ‘sore and swelled up,’ putting Game 5 in question: Report

Matt Harvey is still scheduled to pitch a potential Game 5 of the NLCS for the Mets, but there is still some concern about the right-hander’s availability.

Manager Terry Collins on Monday described Harvey as “sore and swelled up,” two days after the pitcher was hit by a line drive near his right shoulder in Game 1 of the NLCS, reported the New York Post.

“The big day will be (Tuesday),” Collins said, referring to Harvey’s scheduled throw day.

In the sixth inning of Saturday night’s game, Dexter Fowler hit a line drive that careened off Harvey between the elbow and the shoulder, bouncing high in the air before the pitcher completed the out.

If Harvey isn’t deemed fit to pitch a potential Game 5, the start could go to Bartolo Colon, according to Collins.
