Matt Harvey gets crushed in rehab start

Matt Harvey

Matt Harvey pitched in a rehab start on Saturday, and it really could not have gone much worse.

The Los Angeles Angels starter lasted just 2.2 innings for the Triple-A Salt Lake Bees. He allowed eight hits, eight runs (all earned), two walks and struck out two. Bees broadcaster Steve Klauke says Harvey’s fastball was only 89-90 mph.

Of Harvey’s 83 pitches, only 48 were strikes.

Klauke did defend Harvey somewhat.

The Angels’ signing of Harvey has been nothing short of a disaster this season. They paid him $11 million guaranteed and he’s gone 2-4 with a 7.50 ERA in 48 innings. He only has three quality starts out of 10 tries and went on the IL in May with a back injury that he kept from the team.

With a rehab start like that, he won’t be helping the team any time soon.
