Minor League Report: Harvey Could Be Called Up By June 1st, Other Notables
For several weeks now, there has been a lot of talk about when Matt Harvey will be bumped up to Binghamton. According to sources, It may not be long from now.
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, reports that the Mets could call up Matt Harvey up to Binghamton around June 1st.
As I’ve said, Matt Harvey’s real test will come when he is called up to Binghamton, because from there, he will be playing with other players who are older and have more expedience thus giving the 23-year old more of a challenge to help him with his development.
Here are some other notable news from the Mets minor league system.
Botts Signed; Assigned to Buffalo
