As a sample of a broken star in New York’s ‘The Dark Knight’… Matt Harvey finally retires at 34

Matt Harvey (34), who seemed to walk the path of a superstar under the spotlight from childhood, but fell into a model of a broken star who failed to manage himself, eventually said goodbye to active duty.

On the 5th (Korean time), Harvey announced his retirement by leaving the phrase “Hello baseball, and thank you” through his social network service (SNS). Harvey had not been able to find a team this season, and as major league clubs continued to turn away from him, he eventually chose to retire.

Harvey expressed his gratitude to the fans and the city who have supported them so far, saying, “The fans, especially the New York Mets fans, were the ones who made my dreams come true. They will always be in my heart.”

Born in 1989, Harvey is 34 years old this year. His retirement is bound to evoke mixed feelings, as many still remember his childhood.

Harvey, who has received a lot of attention since he was an amateur, competed for the title of the best pitcher in high school in the United States. He went 9-5 with a 2.27 earned run average in 26 games in 2013 and was selected as an All-Star, and also ranked 4th in the National League in Cy Young voting.

The New York media gave this star-filled player the nickname ‘Dark Knight’, revealing great expectations. Mets fans had no doubt that Harvey and the team’s young starters, including Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler and Jacob카지노사이트 deGrom, would one day build a league-dominant team.

Harvey underwent elbow ligament reconstruction surgery in 2013, and in 2015, his return season, in 29 games, he recorded 13 wins and 8 losses with an average ERA of 2.71 and announced his good health. His National League Regatta of the Year Award also went to him. With his elbow problem resolved, it seemed that nothing would stand in his way anymore. But after that, the fall like a lie continued. The press, who had high hopes for him, turned harshly, saying, “His self-management failed.”

From 2016 to 2021, Harvey recorded only 25 wins and 48 losses with an ERA of 5.92 in 115 games (107 starts). After his elbow surgery, he was not properly managed, and as a result, his velocity plummeted, and he walked a completely different path from the pitcher he originally expected. There were also voices that blamed the management failures of the Mets and his players for their decline in physical ability in their 20s.

Harvey has been transferred from the New York Mets in 2018 to Cincinnati, Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City, and Baltimore. Most of those were minor league contracts. He was disappointing in the starting rotation and could not last a year.

In 2022, he could not play in the major leagues, but rather was suspended for 60 games after it was known that he was involved in the death of Tyler Skaggs, who died of a drug overdose. Harvey went on his last job search by competing in the WBC in 2023, but despite his passable performance in the WBC, no team was looking for him.
