Scott Boras told Lindsey Adler of The Athletic that he believes Harvey is still a starting pitcher and that he could not develop all of his pitches while serving a bullpen role.

He will be designated for assignment Saturday morning, taking him off the major league roster after a almost six seasons in a Mets uniform. But he slumped the following year and had surgery to correct Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.

After some very high highs and some even lower lows, Harvey's days as a Met have come to an end.

Harvey is eligible for free agency at the end of this season. Harvey is 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA in four starts and four relief appearances.

But as Mets starters Jacob DeGrom and Noah Syndergaard emerged as top pitchers, Harvey fell off, and the Mets' trio hasn't become the dominant force many hoped or expected.

While the Major League Baseball rumors surrounding Matt Harvey are growing already, there is no indication that the New York Yankees are interested, or any other team for that matter. He sat out 2014 after undergoing Tommy John surgery but recovered by posting a 2.71 ERA in 2015 helping lead the Mets to the World Series in 2015.

Instead, the Mets relied on Harvey, who pitched almost 200 innings in the regular season, to lead them on a deep postseason run. "He was appreciated for what he brought to the New York Mets". Since losing his rotation spot, he has a 10.50 ERA in four relief appearances.

"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", Callaway said, referring to himself and pitching coach Dave Eiland.
