Matt Harvey Newsbeat

Twelve years later, Matt Harvey is an Angel trying to earn his way back

TEMPE, Ariz. — There is a place where he may be proud and regretful, where today is just going to have to be better than yesterday and so is just going to have to be good enough, where that guy he knew from way back when remains a work in progress, where that pitcher from the same time remains possible.

Where, in a way, he can be 18 again.

“I wish,” said Matt Harvey, for the first time wearing the colors of the team that drafted him 12 years ago. He smiled.

Matt Harvey, Angels Reportedly Agree to 1-Year, $11 Million Contract

Matt Harvey reportedly will have a new home in 2019.

The former New York Mets and Cincinnati Reds pitcher reportedly is set to sign with the Los Angeles Angels on a one-year deal, per Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports and Jon Heyman of Fancred, Harvey’s deal could be worth as much as $14 million, with a base salary of $11 million and up to $3 million in incentives.

The sort of deal that explains why Mike Trout will spend next October sitting on his porch and whittling.

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…..
