Mets designate pitcher Matt Harvey for assignment

Matt Harvey was long gone by the time the New York Mets designated him for assignment Friday, so there was no farewell image of a once-great pitcher misting up before the cameras or cleaning out his locker.

"Usually I get upset if a report is unexpected", Alderson said.

On Friday, the timeline hit an all-time low with the Mets' decision to designate him for assignment.

"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", Callaway said, referring to himself and pitching coach Dave Eiland.

Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA in eight appearances (four starts) this season. It's something we tried to address, we struggled with, and we wrestled with over two managerial regimes.

"In spite of issues all of us have from time to time, he was appreciated for what he brought to the New York Mets", Alderson said.

Alderson said he was not exactly surprised by Harvey's decision. "In the bullpen, a pitcher tends to focus on two pitches to get back to the rotation".

Like numerous speakers, de Baca had a message for Reynolds and the Republicans who passed the law: "We will see you in court". Reynolds signed the bill at the governor's office at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines.

"We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture", Boras said. I think at this point, pragmatism and realism far outweighed other considerations. Booed as he walked off the mound, Harvey took a seat in the dugout and stared at Citi Field. But because he had been in the major leagues five years, Harvey was allowed to decline given league rules. "I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't".

Harvey would have been eligible for free agency after this season.

If C.C. Sabathia can be successful at his age with softer soft, there's no reason Matt Harvey can't be.

Harvey is 34-37 with a 3.66 ERA in 109 career appearances (104 starts) since joining the Mets in 2012.

He started the All-Star Game at Citi Field in 2013 and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA when he tore an elbow ligament, which led to Tommy John surgery. And regardless of how and why things are ending the way they are, Harvey played a big part in the dramatic and wild World Series run in 2015, all of which I will never forget. Thoracic outlet syndrome affected Harvey's feel for pitching and location, he said, but added that Harvey is healthy and has enough velocity. In the end, Harvey ignored his doctors and agent, pitched, and helped the Mets reach a World Series, which every fan of the team enjoyed up until the final game of the season.

He was suspended for three days without pay in May 2017 for skipping a game following a late night on the town. He exited the outing to boos from the NY crowd. "So I guess the short answer is no".
