Harvey (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $5.125 million deal with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, the New York Times' James Wagner reports.

EDGE Analysis

He can earn an extra $100,000 in performance bonuses. Harvey was throwing with no tingling in his fingers before Christmas, which is a good sign as he recovers from thoracic outlet syndrome. There is a ton of risk involved with that procedure, and success stories of other pitchers returning to peak form after the surgery are hard to find. That said, there will come a time in every draft where the reward outweighs the risk.

Harvey (shoulder) has been throwing and is no longer feeling tingling in his fingers, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

EDGE Analysis

The expectation is that Harvey, who underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July, will be ready for spring training. This latest news is good to hear, but Harvey obviously still carries plenty of risk, considering the shoulder procedure, the Tommy John surgery on his resume and his general ineffectiveness in 2016 (4.86 ERA).

Harvey (shoulder) is expected to be ready for spring training, according to agent Scott Boras, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harvey resumed throwing Monday, less than four months after having a rib removed to alleviate thoracic outlet syndrome. The 27-year-old struggled throughout the first three months of 2016, posting a 4.86 ERA and 1.47 WHIP before undergoing the procedure. The lost season and history of health issues figure to drive Harvey's cost down considerably in the spring.

Harvey (shoulder) began throwing Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair his thoracic outlet syndrome, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks an important step in Harvey's rehab from July 18 shoulder surgery. He will likely look to elongate his throwing distance as the next phase of his rehab. It's currently uncertain if the former All-Star will be ready for the start of spring training in February.

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.
