Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Mets placed Matt Harvey on the
disabled list, one day after Monday's startling and disheartening revelation.
The 24-year-old ace has a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his
right elbow and may need reconstructive surgery that could sideline him for
most of, if not, the entire 2014 season.
Harvey got the starting nod for the National League in this year's All-Star
Game at Citi Field, and lands on the 15-day DL after compiling a 9-5 record
with a 2.27 ERA.
