Matt Harvey Newsbeat

Source: A’s sign former All-Star Matt Harvey minor league contract

The A’s are taking a chance on Matt Harvey.

A source confirmed to NBC Sports California’s Ben Ross that the A’s signed Harvey to a minor league contract. Roster Resource first reported the sides were nearing an agreement, and Jon Heyman first reported the deal.

Harvey was one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball during the first three seasons of his career, making the All-Star Game and finishing fourth in NL Cy Young voting in 2013. He partially tore his UCL that season and missed all of 2014 after underoing Tommy John surgery, but Harvey returned to form in 2015 and helped lead the Mets to the NL pennant.

And with the minor league season over in a little over three weeks too….
