New York Mets part ways with pitcher Harvey

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment 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.

"We're very pleased he is healthy and with more-than-needed Major League Baseball velo", Boras' text said. "We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture". "This was a long time coming".

Alderson told reporters that he, manager Mickey Callaway and pitching coach Dave Eiland all met with Harvey and tried to convince him that he could rebuild himself in the minor leagues and return once he was ready. This is not someone who hasn't pitched well recently. The Dodgers also have Ross Stripling, although he appears to be too valuable in the bullpen to move to the rotation.

The Yankees remain confident they will have options to go to in the minor leagues at some point this season, whether it's Justus Sheffield, who was just promoted to Triple-A, or Sunday's scheduled starter, Domingo German, among others. "It's our job to help every player in here".

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.

"I try not to let emotion interfere with decision making, but empathy is part of making decisions", Alderson said. He pitched to a 6.70 ERA in 2017, missing a long chunk of the season with injury.

Last season, Harvey was suspended for three games after he did not show up for a game at Citi Field. "I guess the short answer is no".
