Harvey will pitch on 11 days rest after the Mets skipped his last start due to innings concerns. The Mets believe Harvey, who is tentatively scheduled for 185-190 innings in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, won’t need to be skipped again.

Eickhoff had a rough first inning Wednesday against the Mets, allowing three runs. But he retired 16 consecutive batters at one point, which the Phillies hope is a sign of things to come in the final few weeks of the season.

Colon threw more changeups in his last start than in any outing since PITCHf/x started keeping track nine years ago. He may need to mix things up yet again on Monday, facing the Phillies for the fourth time this season. He’s 3-0 against them.

Niese struggled in his last three starts of August, posting a 7.79 ERA with nearly as many walks (nine) as strikeouts (13). As the Mets spend the next five weeks mapping out their playoff rotation, it would behoove Niese to improve in September.
