New York Mets announce some roster moves that include Matt Harvey


I expect this New York Mets team to be one of the most activate teams during the off-season and could be looking to add another first baseman, a couple pitchers and an outfielder who can provide some offense.

Now before all this, the Mets have activated four players from their 60-day disabled lists. First guy up is right handed pitcher Jeremy Hafner who had Tommy John surgery back in August. He’s expected to miss the entire 2014 season, so he’ll be placed back on the disabled list before the season starts.

Matt Harvey is the second pitcher on this Mets roster that underwent Tommy John surgery, but his surgery happened earlier this month. He will be out for the entire 2014 season so he’ll be placed back on the disabled list also.

Left handed pitcher Josh Edgin suffered a stress fracture on his rib cage back in August and hasn’t been able to make his return back to the mound, at least not this season. He’ll take another shot at it next year after posting a 3.77 ERA in 28 2/3 innings before going down with the rib cage injury.

With Harvey out, he’ll have a great shot at locking up a spot in the rotation.

First baseman Ike Davis fell to a strained right oblique back in September but is expected to be 100 percent by the time Spring Training rolls around. If he wants to keep his job in New York, he’s going to have to step it up next year or he’ll find himself looking for another job.
