Mets RHP Matt Harvey has elbow surgery
October 22, 2013
NEW YORK (AP) - Mets right-hander Matt Harvey has had elbow-reconstruction surgery, and he will miss the entire 2014 season.
Dr. James Andrews performed the operation that repaired a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in Harvey's right elbow on Tuesday. Recovery from Tommy John surgery typically takes about a year.
The 24-year-old Harvey learned of the injury in August. The National League's starter in the All-Star game at Citi Field initially said he could strengthen the muscles around the ligament and avoid surgery.
Harvey went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts in 178 1-3 innings this year.
