Harvey Ready For Elbow Surgery, Understands It Was His Only Option
“The thing is that he gave it time and he had repeated conversations with the doctors, and did a very thorough analysis and I think in the end the doctors agreed that this is something that Matt ought to do,” Boras told The Post. “He looked closely at all the information that was given him and made his decision.”
Boras told Kernan that the tear to Harvey’s ulnar collateral ligament was to such a degree that surgery was, in the end, the only option, especially with Harvey being a power pitcher.
Dr. James Andrews will perform the surgery and Harvey is expected to miss the 2014 season.
Harvey, 24, is expected to follow a similar rehab and core strengthening plan like the one the Nationals employed with Stephen Strasburg, whose made a complete recovery from his 2010 elbow surgery.
