Mets designate Matt Harvey for assignment after awful start to 2018

Mets and Matt Harvey Part Ways Mets To Designate Matt Harvey For Assignment

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson revealed the news during a press conference prior to Friday's game against the Colorado Rockies.

Harvey has a 6.77 ERA in 119 2/3 innings combined between this year and last. "This was a long time coming".

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.

Harvey has spent his entire career with the Mets since debuting in 2012.

The Mets have requested that Matt Harvey agree to a minor league assignment. The move to the bullpen was dramatic in itself.

Harvey has always frustrated the Mets with some of his off-field antics, although the team was willing to put up with him while he was dominating opposing hitters.

"We're very pleased he is healthy and with more-than-needed Major League Baseball velo", Boras' text said. In spite of the issues, I really like Matt.

"It's tough for both of us".

"We feel our job is to help every player in there and it's not a good feeling when you don't". He now holds a 0-2 record with a 7.00 ERA, only striking out 20 batters in 27 innings.

The 29-year-old right-hander lost his spot in the rotation last month after four starts, and he had a 10.50 ERA in four relief appearances. There's no telling how much of what befell Harvey was outside of his control, however, and it's certainly possible that the thoracic outlet operation is what did him in more so than any amount of late nights.

"Matt's had a lot of ups and downs here - some of the highest ups and the lowest downs". He gave up at least four runs in each of his next three starts and the rest was history.

In a text to ESPN, Boras expressed confidence that Harvey can succeed in his road back to becoming an effective big league starter.
