"There's still a high degree of confidence within the organization," another source told ESPN NY's Adam Rubin, who also said, "Trust me, he'll pitch," in regards to whether Harvey will pitch in October (Sept. 5, 2015).
The reports came hours after Harvey did not distance himself from agent Scott Boras, who recently told media that doctors are advising Harvey to stay under 180 innings in 2015, including the postseason.
Terry Collins told reporters late Saturday that Harvey is well aware of the outrage among Mets fans, who have been voicing their frustration with him on social media.
"That's against who he is," Collins said, apparently referring to opinions that Harvey is abandoning the team in the middle of a pennant chase. "We'll get him back on track.''
The anger led to at least two hacks of his Wikipedia page, where some switched his name to from "Batman," to the "The Joker" and "two-faced."
Three weeks ago, Harvey told reporter Jimmy Traina of Fox Sports that he had "no idea" if he was on a 180-inning limit (Aug. 2015).
Bartolo Colon's well-timed shutout led to a bit of post-game levity, during which Colon said, "There's no such thing as an innings limit," speaking about his ability to pitch at 42 years old.
