Mets ace Matt Harvey will have surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, an operation that will sideline him for the 2014 season.

Harvey traveled to Pensacola, Fla., to see Andrews on Monday. The Mets say they expect to have additional information Tuesday.
Harang struck out 10 Washington batters to become just the third pitcher in club history to fan 10 or more opposing hitters in his first game for the Mets.
