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

Matt Harvey Stats | Baseball-Reference.com

On Friday, the Mets designated the struggling pitcher for assignment after he refused to go to the minors for a stint, effectively ending his career with the team after five up-and-down seasons.

"It's the end of an era", Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said before Friday night's game against Colorado. They will now have seven days to trade him or release him outright.

"My guess is there are people out there who are willing to take a shot on Matt Harvey. This was a long time coming", said Alderson, who added off-field issues didn't play a factor.

Drafted by the Mets with the seventh-overall pick in 2010, Harvey had a tight but fleeting grasp of the city spotlight he uniquely embraced, beginning with his breakout 2013 campaign, in which he finished fourth in the National League Cy Young voting. "I think that, at this point, pragmatism, realism far outweighed other considerations".

Harvey posted an ERA of 7.00 over 27 innings pitched this season, with a record of 0-2 in four starts. "Matt has been a cornerstone of my tenure here, a tremendous prospect from the time I arrived, tremendous accomplishments, and a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his making".

"It became evident to Dave and myself that him getting to where he needed to be out of the bullpen probably wasn't something that was realistic, " Callaway said.

Callaway said he and Eiland were both disappointed that Harvey failed to make more progress this spring. But after Harvey underwent a second surgery to address thoracic outlet syndrome - a procedure that few players fully recover from - his pitching was never the same. Obviously, there were challenges along the way for him and for us. In the three seasons since he choked away said World Series game, Harvey has gone 9-19 with zero complete games and a 5.93 ERA through 212 innings. We didn't ask Matt to agree or not on the spot. "I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't". A fresh start with a new organization could be exactly what Harvey needs.

Off the field, Harvey has been partying it up. "In the bullpen, a pitcher tends to focus on two pitches to get back to the rotation".

"We're very pleased Matt is healthy and with more-than-needed Major League Baseball velo". "We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture".
