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

06 May, 2018, 03:29 | Author: Greg Lawrence

Whether by way of trade, claim, or signing, it's possible to imagine plenty of other organizations weighing a crack at getting Harvey back to being a useful pitcher - if not something approaching his former glory.

"This was a long time coming", Alderson told reporters.

Harvey was a first-round pick by the Mets in 2010.

Cueto was placed on the disabled list this week after going 3-0 with a major league-leading 0.84 ERA in five starts.

The team had requested Harvey accept a minor league assignment, but he refused, Alderson said.

Of course, all these statistical statements about life expectancy are about large groups of people and may sound rather cold. Mr Hunt said "administrative incompetence" meant some families may have lost, or be about to lose, a loved one to cancer.

On Friday, the timeline hit an all-time low with the Mets' decision to designate him for assignment. He went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA in 2013, started for the National League in the All-Star Game and was anointed the "Dark Knight of Gotham". With the Mets pushing down the stretch in a breakout campaign for the organization, though, an innings controversy arose that involved two of the game's most famous names (agent Scott Boras and surgeon Dr. James Andrews) that aren't affiliated with an Major League Baseball organization.

"I try not to let emotion interfere with decision making, but empathy is part of making decisions", Alderson said. But Harvey's comeback will have to take place somewhere other than Citi Field.

But Harvey's problems began long before this season. He started the All-Star Game for the Mets in front of the home fans at Citi Field and it looked as if he'd be the next ace to rule over NY. "We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture". They called him up in July 2012, and less than a year later, he started the All-Star Game in NY. "I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't". As recently as 2015, after all, he was considered one of the game's very best starters.

He was 6-13 with a 6.70 ERA last season, when he was sidelined from mid-June until September because of a stress injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder.

The New York Post reported this week that Harvey was out partying in Los Angeles the night before pitching in San Diego last weekend. He underwent Tommy John surgery in October and missed the entire 2014 season. "So I guess the short answer is no".
