Matt Harvey (shoulder) said he's completely healthy heading into spring training.
"I come down here with a lot of confidence," the right-hander told reporters Monday after arriving in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Harvey needed surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome last July, finishing the 2016 season with a rough 4.86 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 92 2/3 innings. He's a high-risk, high-reward fantasy starter for 2017.

Matt Harvey's agent, Scott Boras, said that the pitcher will be fully recovered from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery by the start of spring training.

Boras made similar comments in mid-October, so it looks like no news is good news in this case. Harvey underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in July.

Scott Boras said Tuesday that he expects his client, Matt Harvey (thoracic outlet syndrome), to be back to 100 percent for the start of spring training.

Harvey underwent surgery in mid-July for thoracic outlet syndrome. The procedure involved removing a rib in order to free compressed nerves traveling from his shoulder to his armpit. He pitched without complete feeling in his arm and fingers for most of the season, but he immediately felt "big relief" after the procedure. Harvey recently resumed playing catch and will report to Boras' training center in Newport Beach, California next month to work on conditioning and continue his rehab process. Barring any setbacks, he should be on track for the start of 2017. Harvey, 27, went 4-10 with a 4.86 ERA and 76/25 K/BB ratio over 92 2/3 innings this season.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
