Mets P Matt Harvey to have season-ending shoulder surgery

The New York Mets got back to the World Series for the first time since the 2000 season, but it doesn’t look like they will be making another run this year. This is very apparent after they lost starting pitcher Matt Harvey to season-ending shoulder surgery.

Harvey has had complications with his shoulder all year long and on Thursday, reports surfaced that he was considering have the surgery. It was reported on Friday that he would undergo the surgery to combat thoracic outlet syndrome and he would miss the rest of the year.

He was placed on the disabled list earlier this week and was later diagnosed with the syndrome that is caused by a compression of nerves and blood vessels in the shoulder.

It is, strangely, often alleviated by the removal of a rib in a patient.

The injury has likely been the biggest reason for Matt Harvey’s struggles this year as he has posted a 4.86 ERA and had a diminished strikeout count with just 7.4 strikeouts per every nine innings.

This is the second big hit the Mets have taken this season after David Wright went down with a neck injury.
