New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) is ending his rehab plans and will undergo Tommy John surgery. He is expected to miss all of the 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: You'll obviously have to avoid Harvey next season, and you'll have to bite the bullet and stash him in deep keeper leagues. Depending on how his rehab goes from the procedure, it might not be until midway through the 2015 season when he returns to top form.

The New York Mets are hoping to see some tangible progress from SP Matt Harvey (elbow), who has yet to start a throwing program, very soon. "The fact that he's not throwing now, I wouldn't say is concerning, but we need to see some progress. I hope that he will be throwing shortly," general manager Sandy Alderson said at a news conference. "I want to emphasize this isn't a rehab program. This is a diagnostic program. We'll see what happens." Harvey chose rehab over surgery, but if he needs to undergo Tommy John surgery, he'll miss all of the 2014 season. He's currently working with physical therapist and is expected to move to Florida to start his throwing program soon.
Fantasy Tip: Harvey will be a risk heading into the 2014 season if he avoids surgery in the offseason; rarely do Tommy John surgery candiates end up avoiding the procedure through rest and rehab. Be careful not to overpay for what he's unlikely to duplicate next year if he miraculously avoids a surgery.

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey (elbow) will attempt to rehab his right elbow for a month and then throw in order to try to avoid undergoing Tommy John surgery. If he continues to have problems with his elbow, he could have the surgery in the offseason to repair his partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. Harvey had a second opinion on his arm from Dr. James Andrews Monday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Harvey would have likely missed all of next season if he'd undergone the procedure by now, anyway. This gives him the option of avoiding the famous surgery. If he makes it through the offseason without any setbacks, he'll still be a risky pitching commodity because of the chance of a setback early next season. His price will be high, no doubt, too, if he enters the season healthy.
