Harvey (shoulder) had surgery in St. Louis on Monday to repair his thoracic outlet syndrome, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey's season is officially over and will end in disappointing fashion as the 27-year-old could never get it going for the Mets. He will finish with a 4-10 record and 4.86 ERA over 17 starts and shift his focus to rehabbing his shoulder and preparing for the 2017 season.

Harvey will undergo season-ending surgery to address his thoracic outlet syndrome, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey and the Mets were mulling over their options in regards to Harvey's health, and the parties ultimately decided to send him under the knife. The procedure will end his 2016 season, but his agent -- Scott Boras -- blamed Harvey's struggles this season on the ailment, so there is hope surgery will help him get back on his game in 2017.

Harvey (shoulder) was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome on Thursday, James Wagner of The New York Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey was evaluated by doctors and was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome, an injury resulting from excessive pressure put on a neuromuscular bundle around an area of the shoulder called the thoracic inlet. He likely has two options now; a nerve-block injection, or season-ending surgery. It's bad news for Harvey as both options spell significant time on the disabled list. Check back later for details concerning what route Harvey and the Mets are leaning towards.

Harvey was placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with right shoulder discomfort, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears that this caught many surrounding the Mets' organization by surprise, but Harvey will head to the DL to recover from shoulder discomfort. The Mets have announced that Harvey will be examined by a specialist in St. Louis on Thursday, so more information should be released following his evaluation. Harvey has been roughed up all season long, owning a career-high 4.86 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 17 starts. To put it in perspective, his previous season-highs for ERA and WHIP were 2.73 and 1.15 respectively.

Harvey served up six runs (five earned) on 11 hits over 3.2 innings but escaped with a no-decision Monday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey remains winless in his past six starts, although three of those have been quality starts. This marks the first time Harvey has allowed at least five runs since May 24 against Washington. He had a 2.27 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 3.5 K/BB in that six-game stretch, but he has now allowed five runs in five starts this season, hardly becoming of a staff ace, and his ERA is back up to 4.86.

Harvey (4-10) pitched just 3.2 innings before seeing his night cut short by a rain delay Tuesday against the Nationals, but still picked up the loss after allowing one run on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts over that time.

EDGE Analysis

While Harvey wasn't very efficient in his time out there, he could've easily avoided the loss had the Mets managed to generate any offense at all against the five Nationals pitchers they faced. It's tough to put too much stock in a 62-pitch outing like this one, but the Dark Knight's 1-6 record in his last nine starts doesn't inspire much confidence. At least he should be well rested when he takes on the Marlins on Monday.

Harvey held the Braves to two runs on eight hits over six innings Thursday, striking out three without a walk in a no-decision.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old righty left with a 3-2 lead, but eighth-inning man Addison Reed gave up a two-run homer to flip the script. It's a quality start for Harvey, but not an altogether impressive one, as he was less than dominant against a poor Atlanta lineup. Still, he's stabilized the ship over his last five starts. The Nationals will provide an interesting test for Harvey on Tuesday.

Harvey (4-9) allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over six innings to take the loss Friday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey gave up runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings while the Mets were only able to score one run, leading to Harvey's ninth loss of the year. This was the first time in four starts that he's allowed more than one run in an outing, and his ERA is now at 4.76. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Braves.

Harvey allowed just one run on four hits while striking out three in seven innings but was out dueled by Jose Fernandez in a 1-0 loss to Miami on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey has righted the ship his last two outings, allowing just one run in 14 innings. That stretch has lowered his ERA to 4.95 on the year. Harvey didn't have his A-stuff Sunday, as he struggled with his off-speed pitches, but he was able to keep the Marlins off-balance enough.

Harvey tossed seven scoreless frames and allowed just two hits while striking out six and walking one in a winning effort against the White Sox on Monday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

Just as encouraging as the result is that Harvey was holding his velocity better in the final innings of his start Monday than he has throughout this season -- he averaged 96.5 mph on his four-seam fastball for the duration of the start (according to Brooks Baseball) -- and he avoided a collapse the second or third time through the White Sox's batting order. Monday marked the first time all season that Harvey pitched in the seventh inning, a feat he'll look to repeat on Sunday against the Marlins.
