Mets Top Prospect Matt Harvey To Make MLB Debut Thursday

Matt Harvey, one of the New York Mets' top pitching prospects, will make his MLB debut Thursday when the Mets open their four-game series against the Arizona Diamondback on the road. Harvey, 23, will replace Miguel Batista in the rotation. Batista was designated for assignment Sunday.

Here is what John Sickels of Minor League Ball had to say about Harvey in his rundown of the Mets' Top 20 prospects for 2012:

1) Matt Harvey, RHP, Grade B+: He can be a number two starter and someone to build around. Some evaluators see him more as a closer if his changeup remains erratic, but I'm cutting him some slack on that issue and am optimistic.

Harvey was the Mets' first-round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft. He is 7-5 with a 3.68 ERA this season with Triple-A Buffalo. He has 112 strikeouts in 110 innings.

Mets (47-47) Vs. Dodgers (51-44) Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule, Probable Pitchers

Losers of seven of their last eight since the All-Star break, the New York Mets will look to try and salvage at least a victory in its series finale Sunday against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers (1:10 p.m. ET on TBS). The Mets have dropped the first two contests of the three-game set and are currently at the .500 mark (47-47) for just the second time this season.

Rookie pitcher Jon Niese (7-4, 3.58 ERA) will be called upon to help New York bounce back. Niese, who's is coming off a solid seven-inning, one-run performance a few days ago, will oppose Dodgers' Nathan Eovaldi (1-6, 4.33 ERA).

This will be the last time this season the Mets and Dodgers meet this season. The winner takes the season series between the two clubs.

Mets-Dodgers Final Score: New York Falls Again To Los Angeles, 8-5

The New York Mets (47-47) are free-falling, losing once again on Saturday afternoon to the Los Angeles Dodgers (51-44) at Citi Field, this time by an 8-5 score.

With the defeat, the Mets fall to .500 for the first time since they were 8-8 all the way back on April 23.

Miguel Batista (1-3, 4.82 ERA) got the start and was knocked around in three innings, surrendering four runs (all earned) on five hits and three walks. Jeremy Hefner didn't fair much better in relieving Batista, giving up two runs in as many innings.

R.A. Dickey also made a cameo appearance out of the bullpen and was hit hard, allowing a two-run homer to Juan Uribe in his only inning of work. New York had scored a pair of runs to close the gap to one in the bottom of the eighth before Uribe restored the cushion.

The only Mets with multiple hits were Ronny Cedeno and Scott Hairston, both collecting two on the afternoon. Cedeno blasted New York's lone home run of the day, his second of the year.

Chris Capuano picked up his 10th win of 2012 for the Dodgers, throwing seven solid innings, only watching three runs go on the scoreboard.
