Once the Mets' ace, Matt Harvey will be designated for assignment

The Mets are finally ready to cut ties with former ace Matt Harvey, who crashed and burned in 2018, failing as both a starter and reliever.

So Alderson, Manager Mickey Callaway and pitching coach Dave Eiland met with Harvey on Friday afternoon and asked him to accept a move to the Mets' minor leagues.

Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making". The Mets will have seven days either to make a trade or release Harvey outright.

"This was a long time coming". The Mets demoted Harvey to the bullpen a couple weeks ago, much to his dismay. "His stuff just wasn't playing the way it should and there were some mechanical issues".

He said in an open meeting in March that during his visit to Washington both sides agreed there can not be a full-out tariff war. But the divergent US trade delegation is likely to have differing views on the merits of such an offer.

Scott Boras told Lindsey Adler of The Athletic that he believes Harvey is still a starting pitcher and that he could not develop all of his pitches while serving a bullpen role. "We wanted to give him time to think about it, to talk to his agent, and he has taken that time and has decided against the assignment". "We tried things. It's more of a feeling that, when your players don't succeed, you feel it". "So we have to obviously get better at our jobs too". He now holds a 0-2 record with a 7.00 ERA, only striking out 20 batters in 27 innings. Since losing his rotation spot, he has a 10.50 ERA in four relief appearances. Thoracic outlet syndrome affected Harvey's feel for pitching and location, he said, but added that Harvey is healthy and has enough velocity.

Harvey was in the final year of his contract.

After being an All-Star in 2013, the future looked bright for Harvey. He underwent Tommy John surgery in October and missed the entire 2014 season.

Harvey was drafted by the Mets in the first round of the 2010 draft from the University of North Carolina and made his major league debut on July 26, 2012 with 11 strikeouts in 5.1 innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. This brings to an end one of the most compelling, and complex, chapters in franchise history, with Harvey transforming from savior to malcontent as he lost the zip on his once-dominating fastball.
