Mets To Designate Matt Harvey

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

As a result, Sandy Alderson announced that Harvey will be designated for assignment tomorrow.

The New York Mets have a week to either trade or release Matt Harvey after the right-hander refused a minor league assignment, and at least one of his teammates says he would have done the exact same thing.

At the same time, Harvey came under scrutiny for occasional off-the-field distractions and excess partying. But Harvey's comeback will have to take place somewhere other than Citi Field.

Scott Boras, Harvey's agent, said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches.

"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", Callaway said in his own press conference. He was nicknamed the Dark Knight of Gotham after Sports Illustrated called him that in a cover story in May 2013.

The secretive Swedish Academy never reveals nominees' names, and there is intense speculation about the likely victor each year. The former Secretary of the Academy, Horace Engdahl , wanted the Academy to deal with the issue more discreetly.

After showing promise in spring training, Eiland said Harvey's arm got stiffer and "his stuff went backward" as the season progressed.

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. He sat out 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery but recovered by posting a 2.71 ERA in 2015 helping lead the Mets to the World Series in 2015.

Selected by the Mets with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft, Harvey made his big-league debut in July 2012 and became a major sports figure in NY - both at the ballpark and at Manhattan night spots.

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. Last season, he was 5-7 with a career-worst 6.70 ERA, and missed 2 1/2 months with a stress fracture in his scapula. In his first three seasons, he was 25-18 in 65 starts, with a 2.53 ERA.

"I think that he had previously, in the abstract, indicated that he would not accept", he said. He was suspended for three days without pay in May for skipping a game following a late night on the town. Just last week, Harvey was seen at a Los Angeles club the evening before he pitched in a game in San Diego. "So I guess the short answer is no".
