Connecticut-Born Mets Ace Harvey Out For Season

Connecticut native Matt Harvey is expected to miss the rest of the season with the New York Mets.

The Mets website says Harvey has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow and will likely miss the remainder of the season.  The Mets say he will not undergo “Tommy John” surgery at this time —  but they say the surgery reconstructing the elbow has not been ruled out.

The Mets say Harvey,  who played at Fitch High School in Groton,  had been experiencing tenderness in his forearm,  and underwent an MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York today.

Harvey,  the National League starter in the All-Star Game,  gave up a career-high 13 hits in 6 2/3 innings against the Tigers Saturday,  and told the training staff after the game that he was experiencing more discomfort than previously.
