Matt Harvey Delaying Surgery

In a Mark Sanchez-related move, Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is reportedly going to try to escape Tommy John surgery by rehabbing over the next few months and then reassessing the situation at that time.

Harvey most recently got a second opinion from elbow surgery genius Dr. James Andrews on Monday. From that appointment, Harvey feels that he might be able to avoid going under the knife.

On August 26th, an MRI showed that Harvey had a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. At the time, it was devastating and impossible to believe that the Mets All-Star would come back any time before the spring of 2014.

If rehab is successful, Harvey could be pitching for the Mets this spring training – which would be miraculous.

Whatever Harvey decides to do – let’s all just hope that it’s for the betterment of his body and future. At only 24 years old, this guy has a magnificent career ahead of him and as baseball fans, we all want to be able to enjoy that.

Harvey has taken almost a month to fully evaluate his situation and if he feels like this is the best way to go, we all wish him the best!
