Yesterday, Mets ace Matt Harvey underwent an MRI that revealed he has a partially torn UCL in his right elbow. The hard-throwing righty has been the lone bright spot for a Mets ballclub destined to finish below .500 for the fifth straight season. The news was heartbreaking for baseball fans everywhere.
Harvey remained in the Mets dugout after meeting with the press prior to last night’s game. During the 7th inning SNY’s camera caught veteran catcher John Buck consoling his obviously bummed ace. The moment was touching and achingly sad.
The organization will wait to decide if Harvey needs Tommy John surgery, which would likely sideline him for the entire 2014 season.
