Mets | Matt Harvey update
Updating a previous report, New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) will not pitch in the majors within 11 months of his Tommy John surgery, which occurred Oct. 22 of last year. That means he would only have the final six games of the regular season to make a start this year before the team's season ends Sept. 28. General manager Sandy Alderson said the Mets could allow Harvey to pitch in the instructional league instead. New York is unlikely to have him pitch in minor league games, either, unless the team is in postseason contention.
"I don't know why we would rush him for any other reason," manager Terry Collins said. "... I'd love him to pitch this year, because I think it means we're in the hunt. But I don't find it drastically important, because the one thing we do not want to have is some type of major relapse because we came too fast and this guy sits out 2015. That ain't happening."
Fantasy Tip: Those holding onto Harvey this year in hopes that he'd make some sort of impact down the stretch can officially move on. Harvey should only be on rosters in non-redraft leagues.
