Matt Harvey agrees to minor-league deal with A's

Matt Harvey is getting another shot.

The former Mets star agreed to a minor-league deal with the Athletics on Wednesday, according to MLB Network, setting up a reunion with former Mets GM and now-Oakland senior adviser Sandy Alderson.

Harvey started the season with the Los Angeles Angels, but was released last month after going 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA in 12 starts.

The 30-year-old Harvey joins an A's team which is two games back in the American League wild-card race.

Harvey was among baseball's most dominant starters for a time with the New York Mets.

The Mets finally cut their losses with Harvey on May 8th of past year.

Harvey spent the rest of the season with the Reds, and was granted free agency when the season came to an end.

That is when his troubles began. The Mets fell short in the World Series losing to the Kansas City Royals. NY would go on to lose 7-2 in extra innings. He dazzled again in 2013, posting a 2.27 ERA in 26 starts.

Harvey signed a one-year, $11 million contract with the Angels in December.

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.
