NEW YORK (AP) - Matt Harvey has a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, an injury the New York Mets' young ace hopes will not require surgery.
Harvey and General manager Sandy Alderson both say they we're shocked when they were given the results of the MRI performed Monday.
The right-hander said he was dealing with forearm discomfort for some time this season and that it got worse after his start Saturday against the Detroit Tigers.
The NL All-Star game starter has some swelling in the arm and a more complete prognosis will not be made for a week or two. For now, the Cy Young Award candidate will rest.
Harvey says he will do everything he can to avoid Tommy John surgery that would likely force him to miss an entire season.
