Mets’ Har­vey side­lined again

Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS -

New York Mets pitcher Matt Har­vey will be side­lined for sev­eral weeks with a stress in­jury to the scapula bone in the right shoul­der, the lat­est set­back to a ca­reer al­ready slowed by Tommy John surgery and a tho­racic out­let syn­drome op­er­a­tion.

The Mets also put sec­ond base­man Neil Walker on the 10-day dis­abled list with a par­tially torn left ham­string.

Mets gen­eral man­ager Sandy Alder­son said Har­vey is ex­pected to go on the DL Fri­day. The Mets said that Har­vey and Walker are ex­pected to miss “sev­eral weeks.”

Har­vey had a platelet-rich plasma in­jec­tion Thurs­day, a day af­ter his fast­ball av­er­aged 91.8 mph against the Chicago Cubs, down from 94-96.5 mph in his pre­vi­ous starts this sea­son.
