New York Mets
When Matt Harvey rejoined the Mets in the final days of August, he said he felt healthy for the first time in years.
Healthy or not, Harvey didn’t look good in his first major league start since June 14. He lasted two innings — the shortest outing of his career — Sept. 2 at Houston, allowing the Astros seven runs on
“Obviously, there’s some bad habits mechanically that I’ve continuously brought into outings,” he said. “It’s frustrating, because going through the rehab process and coming back from multiple injuries you feel like you can … hit your spots and do everything right.”
David Wright’s attempt at a comeback, meanwhile, ended in more misery — the Mets announced that their captain would need rotator cuff surgery.
Wright didn’t play at all in the major leagues this season and has played in just 75 regular-season games since 2014. His shoulder problems, which sidelined him in spring training, flared up again after he played 10 innings at third base in Class A on a rehab assignment in August.
The most famous player in the minor leagues vowed to give it another go next season. Tim
Tebow said he planned to be at Mets camp in Port St. Lucie, Fla., again in the spring. He hit .226 with eight home runs in 126 games split between two Class A teams.
