CLEVELAND (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey will have his sore right elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews to help determine if the 24-year-old ace needs reconstruction surgery.
Mets manager Terry Collins said before Sunday’s game he thought Harvey would have an examination this week, but no date has been set. Harvey was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 27 with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. He tweeted last month that he planned on being back from his injury in April, but if reconstruction surgery is required he would likely miss all of next season.
Harvey started for the National League in the All-Star Game at Citi Field and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA in 26 starts.
