Why Yankees must stay far away from Matt Harvey

Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making". His most recent innings have been especially bad, and from the bullpen - a benchmark moment on Harvey's sad timeline.

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.

"I could not imagine him accepting an assignment", Bruce said.

Selected by the Mets with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 amateur draft, Harvey made his big league debut in July 2012 and became a major sports figure in NY - both at the ballpark and at Manhattan night spots.

He was suspended for three days without pay in May 2017 for skipping a game following a late night on the town. Just last week, Harvey was seen at a Los Angeles club the evening before he pitched in a game in San Diego. The move to the bullpen was dramatic in itself. "I like Matt, in spite of all the stuff that's gone on and certainly because of a lot of the stuff that's gone on". He's a human being, and as I said before, he's a vulnerable, open human being and kind of leaves himself open for those of us who know and he semi-trusts at least. I really like Matt.

The long and turbulent marriage between Matt Harvey and the New York Mets has finally ended.

He will be designated for assignment Saturday morning, taking him off the major league roster after a almost six seasons in a Mets uniform.

Harvey underwent Tommy John surgery in October 2013 and missed the entire 2014 season. He goes down as one of baseball's best pure hitters - often compared to Pete Rose - and will be the first Japanese player voted into the Hall of Fame. Trying to resuscitate Harvey's career, the Mets moved Harvey from the starting rotation to the bullpen almost two weeks ago. "You pitch and play long enough, and you've earned the right to refuse an assignment".

Harvey started four games in 2018 before being sent to the bullpen.

The right-hander had a stint with the team earlier this season in which he allowed three runs in eight innings, struck out 13 batters, and only walked one.
