Mets RHP Matt Harvey thinks he has fixed a flaw in his delivery, which he adjusted prior to his start against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. "Looking at video from successful starts that I've had in the past, we found out that my arm slot was like six inches higher,'' Harvey said Sunday, according to Newsday.

Then, a couple of days later, Bourn broke his finger while playing catch with a football.
