It took until the middle of June but New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey has come to the conclusion of everyone else, he is unlikely to pitch in 2014.

“I’m always going to be on board with what they have to say,” Harvey said of the Mets and their medical team via Mets.com. “I can only do so much, and speak my two cents. As a competitor, I’m always going to want to get out there, but I can’t write myself out there and set up my own program, so whatever they have set up is obviously the way we’re going to go.”

Harvey went on to say that there was always a chance he was not going to return this season.

“I think it’s always been there,” Harvey said. “I think it was a matter of me not wanting it to happen. I still want to pitch this year. That’s always going to be on my mind. But coming to realize that I can’t write myself in the lineup is becoming a little bit more realistic.”

Harvey will be ready to go for the 2015 season. In 2013 he was an NL All-Star posting a 9-5 record to go with a 2.27 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP.
