Have mechanical adjustments finally brought the old Matt Harvey back?

Posted: 2 days ago. via Beyond the Boxscore
We saw that 97 mph fastball make a cameo on Thursday, which could mean the Dark Knight is rising once again.

Shock waves were sent through the baseball world on May 4th when Matt Harvey was designated for assignment by the New York Mets, the team that drafted him and saw him reach super-stardom as a result of high velocity and nasty breaking pitches.

What goes up must come down, and that was apparent in the downfall of one of baseball’s most popular pitchers when he went down with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, which ended his season in July 2016. He returned to start the season in 2017 but just was never the same. The velocity that caused batters to fear facing him wasn’t there and neither were the results. Between his return from Tommy John’s in 2015 and the 2017 season, he had lost over two mph off of his fastball.
