The Mets and Matt Harvey are in the process of deciding whether or not to have the star pitcher undergo Tommy John surgery. Harvey discovered at the end of August that the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow was partially torn, and this decision will have a huge effect on his career and the Mets' short-term success.

To help make such an important decision, it's prudent to gather as much information as possible, and that's why Harvey was in Florida today meeting with noted orthopedist and sports injury expert Dr. James Andrews. We don't know yet what Andrews told Harvey to do or even what they discussed specifically (the Mets announced that more info is coming tomorrow), but we do know that Dr. Andrews is one man that any athlete would want to consult before having a major operation done.

Mets fans are still reeling from the news that Harvey could possibly miss the entire 2014 season because of Tommy John surgery. All we can hope for now is that Dr. Andrews gives Harvey the best advice possible and that the Mets and Harvey make the best, most informed decision for both parties.
