Date:

Matt Harvey underwent surgery Monday in St. Louis for thoracic outlet syndrome.

Harvey is officially done for the season. It was obvious something wasn't right with him even before the news of his thoracic outlet syndrome, as he had a disappointing 4.86 ERA over 17 starts. The hope is that he'll be ready for the start of 2017.
Jul 18 - 4:21 PM

Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, told ESPN on Friday that his client will have season-ending surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome.

The operation will be performed in St. Louis by specialist Dr. Robert Thompson. Jon Heyman of Fanrag Sports hears that Harvey has been dealing with numbness in his fingertips since spring training, which would help explain his disappointing season.=. A timetable for his return isn't known at this point, but this is a surgery that has sidetracked numerous careers in the past. It's obviously brutal news for Harvey and the Mets.

Matt Harvey has been diagnosed with "symptoms consistent with thoracic outlet syndrome" and is considering undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery.

Harvey flew out to St. Louis on Thursday to meet with Dr. Robert Thompson, the nation's leading specialist in TOS. And the news obviously wasn't good. If the right-hander does go under the knife, he might not be ready to pitch again until mid-2017. Other starting pitchers have failed to return from that surgery, or had their skills greatly diminished. It's absolutely terrible news.
Jul 7 - 3:55 PM

Mets placed RHP Matt Harvey on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder soreness.

Harvey was knocked around for six runs by the Marlins in his last start, but there were no prior indications that he had been dealing with any sort of an injury. He will visit Dr. Robert Thompson, a vascular surgeon in St. Louis, on Thursday to determine the extent of his injury. Thoracic outlet syndrome is one possibility. While there is no current timetable for his recovery, the All-Star break will afford the Mets a convenient window in which he can mend his health. Prior to hitting the disabled list, he held a 4.86 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 17 starts. Expect further clarification as to the nature of this shoulder soreness after Thursday's medical checkup.
Jul 6 - 5:35 PM

Matt Harvey allowed six runs -- five earned -- over just 3 2/3 frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 8-6 comeback win over the Marlins.

Harvey was saddled with a loss last after yielding just one run over 3 2/3 frames in a rain-shortened outing, so we supposed it all evens out. The right-hander has mostly been very good of late but this was obviously a step in the wrong direction, as he surrendered a whopping 11 hits on the day. He'll attempt to bounce back in his final start before the All-Star break, which will come on Saturday at home versus the Nationals.
Jul 4 - 8:21 PM

Matt Harvey was stuck with a loss after allowing one run over 3 2/3 frames against the Nationals.

Harvey wasn't pitching particularly well, as he had given up four hits and walked three. However, he surely had a lot more in him but was pulled following a rain delay of nearly an hour and a half. It was Harvey's 10th loss of the season, which leads the National League. He'll face the Cubs on Sunday.
Jun 29 - 12:24 AM

Matt Harvey limited the Braves to two runs on eight hits over six innings in a no-decision on Thursday.

Harvey struck out just three but didn't walk a batter, and he left in line for his fifth win before the bullpen blew the lead. It still wasn't vintage Harvey, but he's been pretty good for about a month now despite a 4-9 record overall. Harvey will try to continue working on his 4.64 ERA and 1.38 WHIP Tuesday at the Nationals.
Jun 23 - 10:53 PM

Matt Harvey yielded four runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Braves.

He allowed seven hits and walked a pair while striking out five. Harvey came into Friday with three straight excellent outings, so this was a very disappointing performance given the promising matchup on paper. His ERA increased to 4.76 on the year and he leads the National League with nine losses. He’ll try to get back on track next week in a rematch against the Braves, this time on the road.
Jun 17 - 11:05 PM

Matt Harvey had another dominant outing against the Brewers on Friday, tossing six innings of one run ball with eight strikeouts but he had to settle for a no-decision in the Mets' 2-1 extra-inning victory.

That is the third excellent start in a row for the Mets' ace pitcher. He really struggled through his first nine starts and was nearly removed from the rotation before this hot streak started. The eight whiffs were his second-best total on the season. After his poor start on May 24th his ERA stood at 6.08. These last three good starts have enabled him to get his ERA down to 4.66 on the season. Harvey has finally found his mojo, so we should see his ERA steadily improve for the rest of the year, although it is probably too late for him to craft a fourth consecutive season of sub-3.00 ERA.
Jun 11 - 2:50 AM

Matt Harvey pitched well in a tough-luck loss against the Marlins on Sunday, surrendering one run on four hits over seven innings.

Harvey struck out three without walking a batter on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came when J.T. Realmuto worked an RBI single in the fifth inning. That would be the lone run to score in the game, on either side, as Jose Fernandez was more than up to the task in the pitcher's duel. Harvey has now turned in back-to-back fantastic outings and has allowed just one run in his last 14 innings. Baby steps toward respectability. He will carry a 4.95 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 53/18 K/BB ratio (67 1/3 innings) into his next scheduled start, a road date with the Brewers.
Jun 5 - 3:41 PM

Matt Harvey fired seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the White Sox on Monday.

Coming off two disaster starts against the Nationals, Harvey bounced back with his best (and longest) outing of the season. That’s baseball for you. He also had his highest fastball velocity of the season. Harvey limited the White Sox to just two hits and one walk while striking out six batters. He appeared to be in some trouble after the first two batters reached in the seventh and were moved over to second and third after a sacrifice bunt, but he got Todd Frazier to foul out to first base before retiring J.B. Shuck on a ground out. It was an encouraging step in the right direction for Harvey. He’ll try to keep it going this weekend against the Marlins in Miami.
May 30 - 3:49 PM

Matt Harvey will take his next turn in the Mets' rotation Monday versus the White Sox.

There was some talk of skipping Harvey or even trying a phantom disabled list stint after he got lit up for five runs over five innings Tuesday against the Nationals. The right-hander has allowed 19 runs -- 16 earned -- over his last 13 1/3 innings (three starts) and owns a rough 6.08 ERA for the year. But there will be no drastic changes yet.
May 25 - 11:05 AM

Matt Harvey added another chapter to his nightmarish season Tuesday, yielding five runs over five frames in a loss to the Nationals.

Harvey looked better early on, firing three scoreless frames. However, the Nationals tagged him with back-to-back home runs in the fourth and then three more runs in the fifth, punctuated by a Daniel Murphy two-run shot into the upper deck. Harvey has now surrendered at least five runs in three straight outings and his ERA has ballooned to 6.08. Mets manager Terry Collins indicated after the game that Harvey probably wouldn't make his next start, although it's unclear at this point what exactly the plan is.
May 24 - 10:48 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Matt Harvey "looked very good" in a simulated game on Saturday.

He wanted to see Harvey throw Saturday before penciling him in for Tuesday's start against the Nationals. Collins noticed improved velocity from Harvey and also praised his arm angle and movement. "He's confident. He feels good about what happened," said Collins. "So we'll give him tomorrow and Monday off and run him out there." Through nine starts, Harvey owns MLB's seventh-highest ERA while leading the majors with six losses.
