Matt Harvey booed off the field after another very bad performance

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

As it was going down, I speculated that the Braves may have just ended Matt Harvey's tenure with the Mets. "This was a long time coming".

In a text message to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, is optimistic about his client's future.

Perhaps nobody in the organization's 57 seasons has embodied the full Kübler-Ross model of what it means to be a Met - to promise, to fulfill, to frustrate and, ultimately, to disappoint - quite like Harvey.

Selected by the Mets with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 draft, Harvey made his big-league debut in July 2012 and became a major sports figure in NY - both at the ballpark and at Manhattan night spots. He will now go through the waivers process, and if he should clear, it would give the Mets the choice to either trade or, more likely, release Harvey.

"The move to the bullpen was dramatic in itself", Alderson said. Midway through the 2016 season he underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, which is often a death sentence for a pitcher's shoulder.

Mental makeup issues will dominate the Matt Harvey story, but poor health led him where he is today.




Harvey joined the Mets with plenty of fanfare, and delivered, pitching to a sparkling 2.53 ERA from 2012-2015, while sitting out all of 2014 recovering from Tommy John surgery.

He has an 0-2 record this season with an ERA of 7.00 in eight games (four starts).

"It's tough for both of us. I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't".

"Matt's had a lot of ups and downs here - some of the highest ups and the lowest downs". Everything since then has been bad news for Harvey.

It was a roller coaster of a ride for Harvey during his six big league seasons with the team.

"We feel Matt is a starter that needs to work on four pitches, " Boras said.
