The Mets are set to designate Harvey for assignment this weekend, a move that paves the way for NY to cut or trade the 29 year-old right hander.
Alderson called the move "the end of an era" and acknowledged Harvey's two major surgeries played a significant role in his declining performance. "This was a long time coming".
It's been published a lot lately but the fall from grace by former All-Star Matt Harvey has been epic.
Perhaps nobody in the organization's 57 seasons has embodied the full Kübler-Ross model of what it means to be a Met - to promise, to fulfill, to frustrate and, ultimately, to disappoint - quite like Harvey.
When Harvey declined the request, it was an easy decision for the Mets to designate the 29-year-old for assignment. The Mets will then have seven days to either trade Harvey or release him and allow him to find a new team as a free agent.
He started the All-Star Game at Citi Field that July and was 9-5 with a 2.27 ERA when he tore an elbow ligament during a game against Detroit on August 24.

It was a roller coaster of a ride for Harvey during his six big league seasons with the team. He reluctantly went to the bullpen after struggling as a starter, and things didn't improve.
