MLB free agency: Matt Harvey says there’s ‘only one team’ he wouldn’t sign with

Matt Harvey is open to signing with 29 teams.

The 29-year-old starter pitched five innings and allowed three runs in the Reds’ 4-3 loss to the Royals on Tuesday. After the game, the right hander was asked about his upcoming free agency this offseason.

“There’s only one team out there I would not sign with, that’s about it,” Harvey said (via The Athletic).

Mind you, if the hunch we have about what he means is remotely accurate, the feeling seems to be mutual…..

Nationals Reportedly Interested In Matt Harvey, Raisel Iglesias

Harvey, 29, has undeniably raised his stock since joining the Reds in a trade nearly two months ago in a trade that sent Devin Mesoraco to New York. Through 53 2/3 innings out of the Cincinnati rotation, he’s worked to a 3.86 ERA with 6.7 K/9, 2.0 BB/9, 1.17 HR/9 and a 43 percent ground-ball rate. More encouraging than the bottom-line numbers is the fact that Harvey has steadily improved his velocity over the course of his tenure in Cincinnati; he’s averaged nearly 95 mph on his fastball over his past five starts and is averaging 94.2 mph on his heater as a Red after averaging 92.6 mph as a Met.

MLB trade targets: Top 20 players who could move by the deadline

13. Adam Jones, Orioles, center fielder: It was the trade that sent the Mariners spiraling, and in the 10 years since Jones and four others including pitcher Chris Tillman was traded to Baltimore, the Mariners still have not quite recovered. The Orioles love Jones, who has become the face of their franchise, but he’s a free agent in November.

Prediction: The Mariners, who lost All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano to a PED suspension and center fielder Dee Gordon to a broken toe, finally right a wrong and brings back Jones.

A lot of Orioles are on the list.

ESPN: Reds acquire Matt Harvey, ship Devin Mesoraco to Mets

The Reds agreed to pay the Mets $5,788,978 as part of the trade, which made the deal come out nearly even financially. Harvey is making $5,625,000 on a one-year contract. Mesoraco gets $13 million in the final season of a four-year, $28 million deal.

This would have been a blockbuster deal a few seasons ago. Unfortunately, both players are now washed-out, former All-Stars. I realize that the Reds are desperate for starting pitching, but I don’t understand why they want to pay $13M for a season of Matt Harvey.

Mets to designate former All-Star Matt Harvey for assignment

“My guess,” Alderson said, “is that there are people out there who are willing to take a shot on Matt Harvey.

“It’s the end of an era. And I use that term in the broad sense. Matt has been a cornerstone certainly of my tenure here. A tremendous prospect at the time I arrived, tremendous accomplishments during the course of my tenure here, and it’s a very unfortunate, difficult conclusion.”
