The Mets will designate Matt Harvey for assignment after the former ace declined a trip to the minor leagues, general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters on Friday.

The move was made Saturday before NY hosted the Colorado Rockies, just as general manager Sandy Alderson had said. The Mets will have seven days to either trade Harvey or place him on waivers.

Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making". "So I mean this is something we've tried to address, we've struggled with, we've wrestled with over two managerial regimes". I really like Matt.

Selected seventh overall in the 2010 amateur draft, Harvey made his major league debut in July 2012.

"We thought from our evaluation in spring training that we could get him to where he wanted him to be and we didn't".

"We feel Matt is a starter that needs to work on four pitches, " Boras said. He's a human being, and as I said before, he's a vulnerable, open human being and kind of leaves himself open for those of us who know and he semi-trusts at least.

Harvey returned in 2015 and went 13-8 with a 2.27 ERA as the Mets reached the World Series for the first time since 2000.

Just a few weeks after being moved to the bullpen by the New York Mets, Matt Harvey is close to joining another team. He was nicknamed the Dark Knight of Gotham after Sports Illustrated called him that in a cover story in May 2013. He was voted National League Comeback Player of the Year.

So Alderson, manager Mickey Callaway and pitching coach Dave Eiland met with Harvey on Friday afternoon and asked him to accept a move to the Mets' minor leagues. Trying to resuscitate Harvey's career, the Mets moved Harvey from the starting rotation to the bullpen almost two weeks ago. He'll end his Mets career with a 34-37 record and 3.66 ERA across 104 starts.

While he did have the right to refuse, but this was not the answer the team was hoping for. "He was appreciated for what he brought to the New York Mets". His most recent outing was the most demoralizing yet, as Harvey allowed five opposing baserunners to cross the plate on three hits and three walks while recording a single strikeout in two frames.
