Analysis: When the star pitcher didn't initially show Tuesday, general manager Sandy Alderson did not know why. Alderson believed the Citi Field workout was mandatory for all players. Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, also was in the dark at first. He told The Associated Press by phone he wasn't sure why his client wasn't there. But Harvey eventually showed and apologized for the late arrival.

Analysis: Harvey gave up a career high-tying seven runs in 5 1-3 innings Tuesday night during New York's 8-7 win at Washington. The victory gave the Mets a six-game lead over the Nationals.

Analysis: Harvey gave up a career high-tying seven runs on eight hits in 5 1-3 innings and left with New York trailing 7-1. His innings limit has made him the target of tabloid speculation recently and he clearly cracked under the pressure.

Harvey entered Tuesday night's game against the Nationals having pitched 166 1-3 innings this season. The 26-year-old is coming off elbow ligament replacement surgery, and there is some question how he will be used - if at all - after this outing. Analysis: Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, said Friday that the pitcher should not exceed 180 innings, under orders from Dr. James Andrews, who performed the Tommy John operation. The Mets are being careful with Harvey, but manager Terry Collins said Tuesday: "If the last series of the season means us getting in or out and Matt Harvey needs to pitch, he's pitching. That'll be his playoff. That'll be the biggest game he has to pitch. He said he'll pitch. I believe him."

As for the postseason, Harvey's availability will depend partly on how he's used down the stretch for the NL East leaders. Anderson said Monday the plan is not set because he has yet to speak with Harvey's agent, Scott Boras. Analysis: Alderson said he has spoken to surgeon James Andrews and Harvey. The right-hander has pitched 166 1-3 innings in his first season since Tommy John surgery. On Saturday, Harvey said Andrews advised him not to pitch beyond 180 innings, putting his postseason availability in doubt. On Sunday, Harvey wrote on The Players' Tribune website he would definitely pitch in the postseason.

Analysis: He said Saturday that his surgeon has advised him not to exceed 180 innings this year. Harvey has thrown 166 1-3 innings so far.

The right-hander underwent blood tests following his bout with dehydration and was cleared to make his next scheduled start Tuesday against Washington. Analysis: Harvey missed last season recovering from Tommy John surgery, and his health came into question after he became dehydrated during his latest start Wednesday. He is 12-7 with a 2.60 ERA and has thrown 166 1-3 innings for the NL East leaders, and there are no plans to shut him down at any point, assistant general manager John Ricco said Friday.

Analysis: Harvey (11-7, 2.48 ERA) gave up two hits and one walk while striking out eight in his first start since Aug. 16. He's 3-0 with a 0.86 ERA in his last six outings.

Analysis: Mets manager Terry Collins said Harvey will not pitch Sunday at Colorado. Right-handed reliever Logan Verrett (0-1) instead will get the ball. Harvey is 11-7 with a 2.57 ERA after missing last season while recovering from elbow surgery in October 2013. He has thrown 154 innings this season. Collins said the Mets had long planned to give a break to Harvey, adding the team's ace was on board with the idea for the brief letup in his workload.

Analysis: The star right-hander, who missed last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, has allowed 18 earned runs over his last 18 innings.

The All-Star ace was coming off the worst start of his career, getting tagged for seven runs in four innings at Pittsburgh. After the game, the Mets said they worried the right-hander - coming back from Tommy John surgery this year - was having "dead arm" issues.

Analysis: Harvey left the clubhouse Wednesday afternoon to have his foot examined by a doctor. New York manager Terry Collins told reporters it's a minor issue that Harvey has been pitching through for about a month. The right-hander is 3-0 with a 3.50 ERA in three starts this year since returning from Tommy John surgery that sidelined him last season. He gave up a season-high four runs and eight hits Sunday in a win over Miami, saying afterward he felt ill and got tired.

Analysis: Harvey is returning from elbow ligament-replacement surgery that has sidelined him since August 2013. He is scheduled to start the third game of the opening series at the Nationals and the second home game - which likely will draw far more fans to Citi Field with Harvey on the mound that it otherwise would.
