Mets manager Terry Collins is cautious after watching his teams best pitcher have one of the worst outings of his career, saying Harvey could be “going through some of that dead arm stuff that sometimes happens.” For those who may not know, Dead arm syndrome starts with repetitive motion and forces pressure on the posterior capsule of the shoulder. The posterior capsule is a band of fibrous tissue that interconnects with tendons of the rotator cuff of the shoulder. Four muscles and their tendons make up the rotator cuff. They cover the outside of the shoulder to hold, protect and move the joint.
After all of Collins’ speculation, Harvey said this after his awful start, “My arm feels fine, my body feels fine.” So there could be nothing to worry about for Mets fans or Harvey fantasy owners, we will not know until his next start which will come this Friday against the Marlins, on six days rest.
