Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

"My guess", Alderson said", is that there are people out there who are willing to take a shot on Matt Harvey".

The Yankees likely won't touch Harvey at his current price, especially as they remain determined to stay under the luxury tax threshold of $197 million and don't have a ton of cash to spend the rest of the season.

"I think that he had previously, in the abstract, indicated that he would not accept", he said.

Harvey, once the best baseball player in NY, was a Yankees fan as a child.

He was suspended for three days without pay in May 2017 for skipping a game following a late night on the town.

Harvey broke into the Majors in 2012 and quickly became one of the league's top pitchers, earning the nickname the "Dark Knight" and gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2013, when he was an all-star and finished fourth in Cy Young Award voting.

Scott Boras, Harvey's agent, said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches. In spite of the issues, I really like Matt. I don't know of many guys in his shoes who would have accepted it.

It's been a rough year for Matt Harvey.

"We thought from our evaluation in spring training that we could get him to where he wanted him to be and we didn't".

Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA this season, leaving him with a 34-37 record and 3.66 ERA in six major league seasons. He underwent Tommy John surgery in October and missed the entire 2014 season. After a poor performance out of the bullpen against the San Diego Padres last week, Harvey admitted that he had a hard time mentally preparing to come in out of the pen. His most recent outing was the most demoralizing yet, as Harvey allowed five opposing baserunners to cross the plate on three hits and three walks while recording a single strikeout in two frames. The Mets then sent Harvey to the bullpen, a move he was openly frustrated by. Whether by way of trade, claim, or signing, it's possible to imagine plenty of other organizations weighing a crack at getting Harvey back to being a useful pitcher - if not something approaching his former glory. And the results weren't any better, as he had a 10.50 ERA in four appearances.
