Harvey expected to be dealt by the Mets after World Series

The New York Mets have a young talented rotation led by Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard. Matt Harvey is listed as the third-best pitcher in the rotation.

However, Harvey is reportedly going to be traded in the offseason. When he is dealt, he’ll garner the team pro-level players or highly-touted prospects, or a combination of both, depending on what general manager Sandy Alderson wants in return.

Harvey, who is back from having Tommy John surgery, has pitched over 200 innings this season. There was an argument several weeks back that he had a pitch limit, but apparently that’s done and over with.

He’s reportedly pitched the most innings by a pitcher in a season from the popular surgery. But while that may be the case, it’s an incident that happened that has made the team look to deal him.

He missed a workout and that’s unacceptable for any athlete. That’s why the team is looking to deal him.

Whoever gets him will have him under their control through at least the 2018 season, as he’s arbitration eligible through that time. Barring a contract extension, he’ll be a free agent after the 2018 World Series.

The 26-year-old, whose commonly known as “The Dark Knight,” was 13-8 during the regular season in 29 starts. He had a 2.71 ERA in 189 1/3 innings.

In the postseason, he’s presently 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in 12 2/3 innings.

His next start will come in the World Series. However, it’s not clear if it’ll come in Game 1 or Game 3 after manager Terry Collins said today that ace deGrom needs some rest.
