Matt Harvey Designated for Assignment by New York Mets

Matt Harvey Designated for Assignment by New York Mets

After Harvey is designated, the Mets have seven days to trade him or release him. Midway through the 2016 season he underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which is often a death sentence for a pitcher's shoulder.

Indeed, Alderson's sober press conference Friday seemed an altogether unfitting capstone to Harvey's Mets career, which had.

Matt Harvey's tenure with the New York Mets is all but officially over, but some Major League Baseball rumors indicate that he may not be going very far away. If any team claims Harvey on waivers, he will be placed on its 40-man roster with the club having the option to put him in the minors or on the big-league team. They called him up in July 2012, and less than a year later, he started the All-Star Game in NY. The Mets, who have earned the reputation of being a mismanaged organization, made the correct decision to cut ties with Harvey.

Nicknamed "The Dark Knight", Harvey burst onto the scene in 2012.

Harvey would have been eligible for free agency after this season.

After Harvey lost his spot in the starting rotation and struggled during four bullpen outings, the Mets held a meeting with him at 3:15 p.m. ET on Friday and asked him to consider working things out in the minors. It's been more of the same this season, and in 27 innings he has thrown to an ugly 7.00 ERA. The move to the bullpen was dramatic in itself. Harvey returned in 2015, throwing a career-best 189 innings and making four postseason starts (three of them recorded as quality) for the World Series-bound Mets. "I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't". Just last week, Harvey was seen at a Los Angeles club the evening before he pitched in a game in San Diego. Matt Harvey has not been good for a very long time. It's hard to think of many players who experienced these kinds of highs and lows within such a limited time. In 2015, fresh off Tommy John Surgery, he posted a 2.71 ERA with 188 strikeouts in 189 innings, then led the Mets to their first NL pennant in 15 years. But Harvey's comeback will have to take place somewhere other than Citi Field. He pitched to a 6.70 ERA in 2017, missing a long chunk of the season with injury.
