Mets designate Matt Harvey for assignment after disgusting start to 2018

Someone will take a shot on him, either via trade or after he clears waivers and is released. He took two no-hitters into the seventh inning (April 13, June 18) and was ideal through 6 2/3 innings against the White Sox while pitching with a nosebleed.

Harvey has been mostly very bad since 2016, when he was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome. When Harvey arrived in NY in 2012, he embodied the dreams and aspirations of a Mets' fan base that put its faith in the power of young starting pitching. Harvey was offered the option to go down to the minors, but he declined.

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

"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.

It's natural to assume the Mets felt a surge of relief upon cutting their ties with Harvey. 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. He's sporting a 7.00 ERA in 27 innings and doing himself absolutely no favors with the front office or his teammates. "This was a long time coming". 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. The Dodgers also have Ross Stripling, although he appears to be too valuable in the bullpen to move to the rotation. As a player with five years of major league service, he can not be assigned to the minor leagues without his consent. "We feel our job is to help every player in there and it's not a good feeling when you don't". Here's a look at the Dark Knight's biggest highs and lows.

But in October 2013, Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery on the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, causing him to miss the entire 2014 season.
