The Matt Harvey Era Is Over; Mets Designate Him For Assignment

Former New York Mets Relief Pitcher Matt Harvey

We'll always have the memories of Matt Harvey shaving with his shirt open. Jordan Montgomery's elbow strain has shown their lack of depth in the rotation, but Harvey would nearly certainly have to go to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre before he would even be a consideration to help in the rotation.

This means the Mets will have seven days to make a decision on what to do with Harvey. If he finds an organization willing to let him start, he may have enough left in the tank to be an effective back-end starter, but his fantasy value has likely never been lower.

"Usually I get upset if a report is unexpected", he said. Matt has been a cornerstone certainly of my tenure here, a tremendous prospect at the time I arrived, tremendous accomplishments during the course of my tenure here.

Harvey was demoted to the bullpen last month after three straight poor starts. It worked at the time, as he pitched to a 3.04 ERA in four starts throughout their World Series run, but he has not been the same since. He pitched just one clean outing since the demotion, giving up at least one run in three outings, and five against the Braves. In May 2013, Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci wrote a feature on Harvey with the headline "The Dark Knight of Gotham", which became Harvey's moniker.

After weeks of poor performance and some self destruction, the New York Mets finally cut ties with former ace Matt Harvey. But he slumped to a 4-10 record with a 4.86 ERA the following year and had season-ending surgery on July 18, 2016, to correct thoracic outlet syndrome. Looks like I was right, because the Mets just designated Harvey for assignment. Harvey, then, in some ways, feels like a character crafted by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Think back to the surge of electricity when Harvey struck out 11 batters in 5 1/3 innings in his major league debut, or when he walked into the room as the National League's starting pitcher in the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field. Even a move to the bullpen earlier in the year didn't reveal much promise. "We tried things. It's more of a feeling that, when your players don't succeed, you feel it".

Last season, Harvey was suspended for three games after he did not show up for a game at Citi Field.
