Mets' Matt Harvey Designated For Assignment After Refusing Minor League Stint

On Friday, the Mets designated the struggling pitcher for assignment after he refused to go to the minors for a stint, effectively ending his career with the team after five up-and-down seasons. He'll end his Mets career with a 34-37 record and 3.66 ERA across 104 starts. "And I used that term in broad senses". "Matt has been a cornerstone of my time here". "And it's a very unfortunate, hard conclusion".

While the Major League Baseball rumors surrounding Matt Harvey are growing already, there is no indication that the New York Yankees are interested, or any other team for that matter. "In the bullpen a pitcher tends to focus on 2 pitches to get back to the rotation".

The Mets now have seven days to either trade Harvey or release him and allow him to find a new team as a free agent. A trade could be complicated because of Harvey's $5.6 million salary.

Harvey's 92.5 miles per hour fastball velocity is still enough for him to succeed with good command and a plan, but it's going to take a commitment.

"We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture", Boras said.

The 29-year-old had a rough start to the 2018 campaign, going 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA as a starter.

"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", manager Mickey Callaway said of his work with pitching coach Dave Eiland. "This was a long time coming". This is not someone who hasn't pitched well recently. It's something we tried to address, we struggled with, and we wrestled with over two managerial regimes. Booed as he walked off the mound, Harvey took a seat in the dugout and stared at Citi Field.

After showing promise in spring training, Eiland said Harvey's arm got stiffer and "his stuff went backward" as the season progressed. I think at this point, pragmatism and realism far outweighed other considerations. As a player with five years of major league service, he can not be assigned to the minor leagues without his consent. "Our job is to help every player in there, and it's not a good feeling when you can't".

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson revealed the news during a press conference prior to Friday's game against the Colorado Rockies.

The Dark Knight's reign in Gotham has come to a close. That led to Tommy John surgery on October 22. After a fantastic debut for the team, Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery and returned stronger than ever in 2015, leading the team to a World Series.

Admittedly, Harvey's demise, or at least the level of embarrassment he was forced to endure while attempting to return from surgery from thoracic outlet syndrome, was his own doing. He drew a three-game suspension last season after he failed to show up for a game.

The New York Post reported this week that Harvey was out partying in Los Angeles the night before pitching in San Diego last weekend.

"I try not to let emotion interfere with decision-making, but empathy is part of making decisions, " Alderson said.
