Matt Harvey's Time With the Mets is Over

Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making".

This brings to an end one of the most compelling, and complex, chapters in franchise history, with Harvey transforming from savior to malcontent as he lost the zip on his once-dominating fastball. "This was a long time coming". When he broke on the scene Harvey had the stuff of an ace, looking unhittable at times in 2012 and 2013.

Once the toast of a dominant Mets pitching staff, Harvey has been a mess over the past three seasons.

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.

Added Callaway, who vouched for Harvey and had wanted the Mets to keep him in the off-season to help him improve: "We feel like we failed Matt Harvey". The move to the bullpen was dramatic in itself. The seventh went south for him, and the Royals won the Series.

He started the All-Star Game at Citi Field that July and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA when he tore an elbow ligament during a game against Detroit on August 24. Harvey's struggles were reflected in a 0-2 record, a 7.00 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP in eight appearances as a starter and reliever.

"It's tough for both of us".

The announcement comes after Harvey pitched to a 10.50 ERA through four outings out of the bullpen.

It appears Matt Harvey's days as the Dark Knight of Gotham are over. "It's our job to help every player in here".

"Matt's had a lot of ups and downs here - some of the highest ups and the lowest downs". There's no telling how much of what befell Harvey was outside of his control, however, and it's certainly possible that the thoracic outlet operation is what did him in more so than any amount of late nights.

Harvey started four games in 2018 before being sent to the bullpen.

In a text to ESPN, Boras expressed confidence that Harvey can succeed in his road back to becoming an effective big league starter.
