New York Mets part ways with pitcher Harvey

The Mets drafted Harvey with their first pick in 2010, seventh overall.

The final chapter was last night, when he gave up 5 runs against the Braves in a relief appearance, a few weeks after finally being demoted from the rotation. Even a move to the bullpen earlier in the year didn't reveal much promise. "So I think that at this point, pragmatism, realism far outweighed other considerations".

"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". In eight appearances this season (four of them starts) he allowed 33 hits and 21 runs across 27 innings, CBS Sports reports.

The Yankees likely won't touch Harvey at his current price, especially as they remain determined to stay under the luxury tax threshold of $197 million and don't have a ton of cash to spend the rest of the season. As a player with five years of major league service, he can not be assigned to the minor leagues without his consent.

India tops World Health Organization's air pollution list
Waste burning and deforestation are additional sources of air pollution, as are sand and desert dust, the agency says. The PM2.5 includes pollutants like sulfate, nitrate and black carbon, which pose the greatest risk to human health.

Harvey is eligible for free agency at the end of this season. "Our job is to help every player in there, and it's not a good feeling when you can't". Harvey was out in Manhattan the night before. He went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA in 2013, started for the National League in the All-Star Game and was anointed the "Dark Knight of Gotham".

He rebounded from Tommy John surgery to win a career-best 13 games in 2015.

Last season, Harvey was suspended for three games after he did not show up for a game at Citi Field. Mets GM Sandy Alderson, while certainly not happy, was not at all surprised.

The right-hander has been the subject of criticism in recent days after he was spotted partying in Los Angeles on Thursday night before the Mets played the Padres in San Diego. He started just 17 times in 2016, and underwent an operation to alleviate his thoracic outlet syndrome - a condition known to derail many a pitcher's career. "So I guess the short answer is no".
