Jamie Sabau/Getty ImagesCincinnati Reds pitcher Matt Harvey has already been traded once this season and could be on the move again given the latest report.According to Robert Murray of The Athletic http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-george-brett-jersey
, an unknown team claimed Harvey on revocable waivers, which opens up the possibility Cincinnati could trade him even though the non-waiver trade deadline has passed.Andrew Simon of MLB.com provided a rundown of what can happen after a player is claimed on waivers:"Once a player is claimed, his team faces three options. It can pull the player back and keep him, negotiate a trade with the claiming team or let the player go. In the last scenario, the claiming team takes full responsibility for the player's remaining salary. If the two sides decide to work out a trade, they have two days to do so."The New York Mets traded Harvey to the Reds in May in exchange for catcher Devin Mesoraco after the right-handed pitcher posted an ugly 7.00 ERA in eight appearances in New York this season.However, he has shown improvement for the Reds and has a 4.28 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 17 starts Mike Moustakas Jersey
, making him a more valuable trade piece. It makes sense for Cincinnati to move him since it is in last place and could acquire a young asset to bolster its rebuild in a deal before Harvey potentially leaves in free agency this offseason.While there was a time when Harvey was one of the best pitchers in baseball, he posted a 4.86 ERA in 2016 and 6.70 ERA in 2017 before this up-and-down year. The Mets also shut him down in 2016 to undergo surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome.Still, he is just 29 years old, was a 2013 All-Star and won the 2015 National League Comeback Player of the Year Award while helping lead the Mets to the World Series. He is a low-risk option for potential contenders at this point and likely wouldn't command a significant return package in a trade.Harvey has October experience and has proved himself in the past, and at least one unknown team took a step toward landing him for the stretch run. NEW YORK — On Friday night, Aaron Nola moved into a tie for the National League lead by earning his 16th victory.On Saturday night, Max Scherzer not only broke that tie Salvador Perez Jersey
, he notched his 17th win by becoming the second pitcher in the NL to throw a second complete game this season.Your move, Jacob deGrom.Article continues below ...The ace of the New York Mets will look to keep pace with his competition for the NL Cy Young Award on Sunday afternoon, when deGrom takes the mound in the finale of a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field.DeGrom (8-8, 1.68 ERA) is scheduled to oppose the Phillies’ Vince Velasquez (9-10, 4.10) in a battle of right-handers.The Mets evened the series Saturday night, when Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs in a 10-5 victory. Noah Syndergaard earned the win by allowing four runs over a 6 2/3-inning stint that ended when he was hit in the right rib cage by a comebacker off the bat of Cesar Hernandez. X-rays were negative and Syndergaard expects to make his next start as scheduled.The last two days have tightened a Cy Young Award race that has appeared to be tilting in deGrom’s direction over the last couple weeks. Nola’s win Friday snapped a two-start hiccup in which he went 0-1 while allowing seven runs over 12 2/3 innings. Scherzer’s victory ended a three-start winless streak in which he posted a 3.79 ERA.DeGrom, meanwhile http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-moss-jersey
, has been doing all he can to take wins out of the equation. He once again didn’t earn a win for his efforts Monday, when he didn’t factor into the decision despite allowing one run on two hits over six innings in the Mets’ 4-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.It was the 25th straight start in which deGrom gave up three runs or fewer, which broke the modern record set by Dwight Gooden when he won the Cy Young Award for the Mets in 1985 and tied the major league record set by Leonard Cole of the Chicago Cubs in 1910. It was also his 20th straight quality start, breaking the team record set by Tom Seaver in 1973.In addition, it was the 12th time this season deGrom has not earned a win despite pitching at least six innings and giving up two runs or fewer. Mets manager Mickey Callaway has been hoping for weeks deGrom’s tiny ERA — he is more than half a run better than Nola (2.29) and Scherzer (2.33) — will outweigh the lack of wins. No starting pitcher has ever won the Cy Young with fewer than 13 wins.“He’s been the best pitcher in all of baseball,” Callaway told reporters Monday night. “It’s grit and determination. He just won’t be beaten.”The Phillies (74-67) have not been quite as formidable over the past month. If Philadelphia can’t figure out a way to beat deGrom and the Mets (64-77) on Sunday, it will mark the 10th straight series in which Phillies have not earned a series victory.The Phillies are 11-19 since a four-game sweep of the Miami Marlins from Aug. 2-5. Despite the slide Bo Jackson Jersey
, Philadelphia is only 3 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East.Runs have been at a premium during the skid for the Phillies, who are averaging 3.7 runs per game over the last 30 contests. In hopes of reviving the offense, manager Gabe Kapler unveiled an unorthodox lineup Saturday, when usual first baseman Carlos Santana played third base and range-challenged Asdrubal Cabrera started at shortstop.After the Phillies scored five runs Saturday, Kapler said he might be willing to sacrifice defense again Sunday.“Going up against a pitcher like Syndergaard, going up (Sunday) against a pitcher like deGrom, you have to find a way to score runs Paulo Orlando Jersey
,” Kapler said. “Sometimes that means making that tradeoff, putting your best offensive team on the field. We’ll think about doing it again tomorrow.”Velasquez took the loss in his most recent start Monday, when he allowed three runs over five innings as the Phillies fell to the Marlins 3-1.DeGrom is 7-1 with a 2.20 ERA in 14 career starts against the Phillies. Velasquez is 1-3 with a 3.78 ERA in seven career starts against the Mets.
