Matt Harvey to have elbow examined this week


New York Mets ace Matt Harvey will finally get a second opinion on his sore right elbow, when the 24 year old visits Dr. James Andrews later this week.

Harvey and the Mets will be crossing their fingers that Dr. Andrews’ examination results in Harvey not needing reconstructive surgery, a procedure that would sideline Harvey for most, if not all, of next season.

When asked about Harvey’s progress prior to Sunday’s game, Mets manager Terry Collins said he thought Harvey would have an examination this week, although no specific date has been set.

Harvey has been out since being placed on the 15 day disabled list on August 27th with a partial tear in his ulnar collateral ligament.
