Major League Baseball rumors: Much-maligned pitcher Matt Harvey to sign with Athletics

Former Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Matt Harvey signed with the Oakland A's

Former Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Matt Harvey signed with the Oakland A's

Three weeks after he was released by the Angels, Harvey signed a minor-league deal with the A's, who will see if there is any magic left in the former "Dark Knight".

Melissa Lockard of The Athletic is reporting that Harvey will report to Las Vegas to pitch for Oakland's Triple-A team. He was given a one-year deal for $11 million before the season.

He then posted a 6.70 ERA in 2017 and a 7.00 ERA in 27 innings with NY in 2018 before he was traded to the Reds following a demotion to the bullpen and a reported evening at a nightclub before a start. At the time of the trade, Harvey was 0-2 with a 7.00 ERA and had been banished to the bullpen.

Harvey's descent into baseball mediocrity has been nothing short of stunning.

The chaotic situation eventually ended when protesters allowed ambulance workers to take the man away on a stretcher. The man was later driven away in an ambulance after fellow protesters and volunteer medics carried him away.

In 2013, he started the All-Star game at Citi Field and finished fourth in voting for the National League Cy Young Award.

He missed 2014 after having Tommy John surgery. He then came back and was very good for NY in 2015 as the Mets made it to the World Series and lost to the Royals in five games. Since then, Harvey's career has been sidetracked by a series of injuries and disappointing seasons.

Harvey lost his spot in the Mets' rotation after four starts previous year and had a 10.50 ERA in four relief appearances.
