The MLB rumors about Matt Harvey's next destination started nearly immediately.

Alderson said Harvey's tenure faced "a very unfortunate and hard conclusion, not really of his own making".

Harvey returned from the injury in 2015 by going 13-8 with a 2.71 ERA and helping the Mets reach the World Series. Here's a look at the Dark Knight's biggest highs and lows. When Harvey refused, the move was made to designate him for assignment.

Scott Boras, Harvey's agent, said in a text message that the bullpen was tough for Harvey to work on all of his pitches.

According to the New York Daily News, Mets' general manager Sandy Alderson recently asked Harvey to take a demotion to the minor leagues in order to try and regain his old form and confidence. "In the bullpen a pitcher tends to focus on 2 pitches to get back to the rotation".

Per ESPN, the front office will now have a week to trade or hand him his outright release.

The Mets booted Harvey from their rotation April 21 after he looked terrible in four starts, going 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA.

Harvey voiced to the Mets that he wasn't interested in going to the minor leagues and finding himself like other great pitchers have done in the past.

"Very pleased he is healthy and with more than needed Major League Baseball (velocity)", Boras wrote.

But Harvey's problems began long before this season. "We have a lot of clay to work with to build the starter sculpture".

Harvey gave up five runs in two innings in his fourth relief appearance of the season Thursday against the Braves.

He was the seventh overall draft pick in 2010, became an All-Star in 2013 and was the NL Comeback Player of the Year in 2015.

"We feel like we failed Matt Harvey", manager Mickey Callaway said.

But Harvey's career stalled after Tommy John surgery and thoracic outlet syndrome surgery, and he was at the center of numerous off-field controversies. "I think our job is to help every player, and it's not a good feeling when you can't". He was suspended for three days without pay in May for skipping a game following a late night on the town.

Earlier this year, when the Mets were playing in San Diego, Harvey was partying in Los Angeles the night before a game. "I guess the short answer is no".
