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

Having already caught lightning in a bottle with outfielder Corey Dickerson after he was designated for assignment by the Tampa Bay Rays, the Pittsburgh Pirates should take another crack at the waiver-wire lottery with Matt Harvey.
It's natural to assume the Mets felt a surge of relief upon cutting their ties with Harvey. Because of Harvey's $5,625,000 salary, a trade may be hard to work out unless the Mets agree to send cash as part of a deal. In eight appearances with the Mets this season, he had a 7.00 ERA. Tommy John surgery on his right elbow forced Harvey to miss the 2014 season, but he helped lead the Mets to the World Series in 2015. Harvey's ERA has been around six since he began developing shoulder issues and went under the knife for surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome.

The right-hander has been the subject of criticism in recent days after he was spotted partying in Los Angeles on Thursday night before the Mets played the Padres in San Diego. Harvey, then, in some ways, feels like a character crafted by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
