The baseball world was shocked to hear of Matt Harvey‘s devastating arm injury Monday. However, if Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is able to live up to his Tuesday pledge, he’ll downright floor the rest of baseball. It was revealed Monday that Harvey suffered a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow. At the very least, he’ll need to be shut down for the rest of the 2013 season, and there’s a chance he would need Tommy John surgery. If going under the knife is necessary, it would be likely Harvey would miss most of, if not all of 2014. However, Harvey is having none of that. Surgery isn’t a definite at this point, and maybe Harvey knows something we don’t. Either that, or he’s prepared for a superhuman rehab. He tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he’d be ready to go on April 1 — of next year. See the tweet below. Thank you everyone for the kind words and support. I may be done this year, but I will be back next year for April 1.— Matt Harvey (@MattHarvey33) August 27, 2013 Filed under: Headlines, MLB, New York Mets
