The Mets’ miserable season just got a whole lot worse. New York ace Matt Harvey, who started this year’s All-Star Game as a rookie, has been placed on the disabled list with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow — an injury that often requires Tommy John surgery to repair. WFAN’s Mike Francesa first reported the news Monday afternoon, and a team source later confirmed the report to ESPN. In his first full season as a starter, Harvey has been the lone bright spot for a Mets team that sits 19 games out of first place in the National League East. The right-hander has posted a 2.27 ERA and 0.93 WHIP in 26 starts, ranking second in the NL in both categories behind the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. Harvey will almost certainly be shut down for the rest of the 2013 campaign, and if surgery is necessary, he could miss a significant chunk of next season, as well.
