The Texas Rangers could have some interest in New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey, sources have indicated to FanRag Sports. Infielder Jurickson Profar is one name popping up in possible connection to the Mets, and would make sense for New York, though no straight-up deal has been discussed between the two teams. The Rangers could also seek more for Profar, who has three years of team control left; Harvey is due to be a free agent after the 2018 season. Both Harvey and Profar have had falls from grace, with the former’s decline being far more significant than the latter. Once one of the best pitchers in baseball, Harvey has been reduced to mere fodder after a 2017 campaign which saw him go 5-7 with a 6.70 ERA in 18 starts. Over 92.2 innings of work, he allowed 110 hits and 21 home runs while also handing out 47 walks, leading to an alarming WHIP of 1.694. In 2016, Harvey was not much better, going 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA through 17 starts.
