I KNEW I was right not to draft him! ;-7

Just as a fan of the game, it really sucks when it's a young guy. Hopefully it's just a bump in the road.

it was right around this time 3 years ago when Strasburg was injured and we found out that he needed TJ surgery.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson confirmed Monday afternoon that Matt Harvey has a partial UCL tear in his right elbow.
The diagnosis was made after Harvey was examined for forearm tenderness. The Mets haven't ruled out the possibility of Tommy John surgery, though they plan to wait a little while until the swelling subsides. Still, rehabbing this sort of injury rarely works. It's very possible that Harvey won't pitch again in the majors until 2015, which is frustrating news for the franchise


does this have any effect on how young pitchers are used?



It shouldn't . He was only 10 innings past what he did in 2012. Maybe teams with no chance of winning that season will start to be more strict about pitch limits rather than innings.

was the just complete bad luck?
should teams be more patient when bringing along pitchers? Harvey was only 24 this season.

Bad luck. Pitching puts intense strain on the arm. Don't think the Mets did anything wrong with him.

They were saying on MLB Tonight that he could have been pitching with this since High School. Harvey said that forearm tightness was fairly normal for him. The Mets treated him fine.

Not everyone is the same nor do any two pitchers have the same mechanics. Variance is a hell of a thing.
