SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - New York Mets right-hander Matt Harvey will skip his scheduled start on Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Manager Terry Collins made the announcement before the Mets' series finale Wednesday with the San Francisco Giants. He says a minor blister has recently bothered the rookie.
Collins says Harvey will throw limited innings this season, but the number hasn't been determined.
Right-hander Carlos Torres (0-1, 0.51 ERA) will replace him.
