Report: Mets pitcher Matt Harvey to rehab injured elbow, decide later on surgery
New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has chosen not to have surgery immediately on his injured right elbow, reports ESPNNewYork.com’s Adam Rubin.
Harvey will attempt to rehab the partially torn ulnar collateral ligament for a month or two and then test the arm, Rubin reports. If his elbow hasn’t progressed, he could need Tommy John surgery.
The injury ended a fantastic season for Harvey. He started the All-Star Game at Citi Field and went 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA and 191 strikeouts in 178 innings.
