Good Night, Dark Knight: Matt Harvey Being Designated For Assignment

Matt Harvey wasn’t worth saving for the Mets

Under the rules of Major League Baseball, New York has seven days to either trade or release Harvey, who's been with the Mets for the previous five seasons. He started just 17 times in 2016, and underwent an operation to alleviate his thoracic outlet syndrome - a condition known to derail many a pitcher's career.

Callaway said that he and pitching coach Dave Eiland hoped the former All-Star could rejuvenate his career by making some tweaks in the minors, as it seemed "unrealistic" for Harvey to do the necessary work while pitching out of the bullpen.

"My guess", Alderson said", is that there are people out there who are willing to take a shot on Matt Harvey". If any team claims Harvey on waivers, he will be placed on its 40-man roster with the club having the option to put him in the minors or on the big-league team.

"I think there are a lot of issues that come with him and his experience in NY, that perhaps a change of scenery will help", Alderson concluded.

Though he served as the face of the New York Mets franchise just a few years ago, the Matt Harvey era has ended in New York.

Similarly, I can still close my eyes and feel the frenzy at Citi Field in 2013 when he marched up the mound, standing center stage, starting the All Star Game for the National League.

Harvey would have been eligible for free agency after this season.

Harvey posted an ERA of 7.00 over 27 innings pitched this season, with a record of 0-2 in four starts.

Harvey has a 6.77 ERA in 119 2/3 innings combined between this year and last. He is getting too old to be considered a prospect, so this would be the ideal time to give him a longer look in the big league rotation. Even a move to the bullpen earlier in the year didn't reveal much promise.

In the end, injuries killed Harvey's chances of reaching his potential in NY. "We feel our job is to help every player in there and it's not a good feeling when you don't".

Roll the credits on the Dark Knight. But Harvey's comeback will have to take place somewhere other than Citi Field.

The New York Post reported this week that Harvey was out partying in Los Angeles the night before pitching in San Diego last weekend.
